Laying in his bed

Today Alisha and I went back to UCSF to visit Roscoe. Alisha said he was very fussy for the second half of yesterday, because they are feeding him with an IV until he returns to Roseville (we have disagreed, but they insist). That means Roscoe is getting his required nutrition, but his stomach feels empty which makes him upset.

Luckily we took a few videos while he was calm to show what it was like to sit at his bedside on Tuesday and Wednesday. Here's what he looked like when he was relaxed. They are using an overhead heater to keep him warm, so he's been going these past few days with no clothes except his diaper:

This is what the view looks like when we're sitting in the lounge chair next to his bed. If you look closely you can see both his breathing and his heartbeat:

This is what he looks like when we stand at the head of his bed, just another view of what it's like to be in the room with him for those who can't actually be there:

I wonder what God's view of Roscoe looks like? It would be a wonderful thing to see things through the eyes of our creator. Does he see Roscoe as defective or as a baby who was born exactly as intended?

  1. Roscoe was fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139:14) has a great explaination of this. God is still providing the fine tuning!
