Wonderful news, Danny & Kendall, Leah & Charlie!

I wish you all much mazel (luck) and brachot (blessings) that all should go well with the homecoming, and Charlie should continue to get stronger.

Wow wow wow! 'Swonderful! I am so so so happy for you all! You and Kendall can handle the oxygen tank, no problem. I can't wait to hear about Charlie's first days at home.



HURRAY! I am so happy for you guys. And yes... Oliver will always be with you. You're not leaving him behind, and you never will.

I am plotzing with excitement and happiness!!!


heart is breaking and exploding all at once!

so happy for you two!

YAY!!! Mazel Tov! We are so incredibly happy for you! He is SO adorable, and I think he looks just like you, Danny. Can't wait to hear all about your first weekend home. I hope everything goes smoothly (pu, pu, pu).

so happy for all of you!! he has such a danny face. just enjoy that sweet littl boy!

Fantastic news! Fingers and toes crossed for everything to go according to plan.

Oy! What a pisk (face). Now that I've seen him up close and personal, I can attest to how gorgeous Charlie is and how happy and elated you, Kendall and Leah must be to be bringing him home. Much love and mazel to all of you and don't forget I'm up for a diaper change (but not too early in the morning puleeze!)


I've been caught up in your story for a couple weeks now. I'm so happy for your family and so impressed by the strength of your son. My son and I say prayers for your lovely little guy before bed. You have a lot of support (that you never even knew about!) behind you.

G-d Bless. Still praying!

Wow. Just wow.

Mazel Tov!! You are so right about the people in the NICU. It takes an incredible person to work in that environment.

Chubby Cheeks is going home! Hip Hip Horray! OMG he is so cute!!!! : )

Dear Danny,

You fooled me. I take a couple of hours off from checking your blog, thinking it won't be posted 'til late at night, and what happens? The rest of the world learns the glorious news before I do!

I'm so thrilled for you and Kendall and the yummy boy! Remember, Marilyn & I will be there any time you need us, even in the morning.


Oh Danny, I am holding my breath that he does get to come home on Friday! I can't wait for you to experience the joy of bringing your child into the sun for the first time. I am so happy for you.


I am so happy for you. Thank heavens. God bless.

That is such great news!

I was flipping through the web about some other stuff and I came across an organisation called CLIMB (, who are a support network for people who have lost a child in a multiple birth. I don't know if you know of them already, or aren't into the whole support group thing, but I thought it couldn't hurt to share, and to know that there are people who know what you are going through. There's even a page dedicated to dads.

I'm so excited to see Charlie looking so happy and cute and cherubic, and can't wait to see the next post when he's at home with you. Good luck to you all.

You guys are going home tomorrow?! WOW, congratulations! Make sure to get video of Charlie leaving the hospital.

I'm so excited for you, Kendall and Charlie!


I am smiling ear to ear! Mazel tov!!!

He's such a pretty little boy.

I'm happy that he's getting paroled after all this time in confinement, however loving and dedicated.

Good luck starting Operation Charlie Homecoming! Good thing you're now a mature 50 year old. You'll be able to handle it all and more!

Danny, I commented yesterday, but realized now that in a week's time is Rosh Hashanah...a time of new beginnings for Jews around the world...certainly a time of new beginnings for the Miller family.
May your homecoming and the days ahead be filled with much honey-sweetness.

Oh happy day!!! Your posts have been so touching, I can't wait to hear about your new life at home with Charlie! You and your family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Marvelous news! I'm thrilled for you and your family.

Everyone has already said it, but here's another person so, so happy for you guys. And my thoughts stay with those folks & kiddos who are still fighting their battles in the NICU. You've given me a glimpse into a world I never really knew anything about.

Charlie is so adorable. Mazel Tov. I'm so happy for all of you that Charlie can go home. I sometimes imagine him at 13, looking at pics of himself in the NicU going, "Really? Huh. You sure that was me? I'm so strong and healthy."

Mazel Tov!

So happy for yall! Go Charlie!! My birthday is on the 12th. I will give this year's wish to Charlie, and blow out the candles while thinking of him finally at home.

At last! Now health and good times ahead.

Congrats to Charlie and to your beautiful family! Good luck and thanks for sharing your story along the way!

Oh, that's so wonderful. I'm so glad you get to finally bring your boy home. I cant' wait to read about the transition.

You finally get to bring Charlie home! Huzzah! and on a very special day too. It was a day that was very sad, but also was a day for Americans to come together (and the world too) to be united in its outrage against a very small group of hateful people. We were never more proud to be Americans.
After the 9-11 attacks, Rob Suggs, an Atlanta, Georgia, writer and artist , wrote a poem called "The Binch," in direct homage to Theodore Geisel "Dr.Seuss".
The Binch
By Rob Suggs
Every U down in Uville liked the U.S. a lot,
But the Binch, who lived Far East of U-ville, did not.
The Binch hated U.S! The whole U.S. way!
Now don't ask me why, for nobody can say,
It could be his turban was screwed on too tight.
Or the sun from the desert had beaten too bright
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.

But, Whatever the reason, his heart or his turban,
He stood facing U-ville, the part that was urban.
"They're doing their business," he snarled from his perch.
"They're raising their families! They're going to church!
They're leading the world, and their empire is thriving,
I MUST keep the S's and U's from surviving!"

Tomorrow, he knew, all the U's and the S's,
Would put on their pants and their shirts and their dresses,
They'd go to their offices, playgrounds and schools,
And abide by their U and S values and rules.
And then they'd do something he liked least of all,
Every U down in U-ville, the tall and the small,
Would stand all united, each U and each S,
And they'd sing U-ville's anthem, "God bless us! God bless!"
All around their Twin Towers of Uville, they'd stand, and their voices would drown every sound in the land.

"I must stop that singing," Binch said with a smirk,
And he had an idea -- an idea that might work!
The Binch stole some U airplanes in U morning hours,
And crashed them right into the Uville Twin Towers.
"They'll wake to disaster!" he snickered, so sour,
"And how can they sing when they can't find a tower?"

The Binch cocked his ear as they woke from their sleeping,
All set to enjoy their U-wailing and weeping,
Instead he heard something that started quite low,
And it built up quite slow, but it started to grow--
And the Binch heard the most unpredictable thing...
And he couldn't believe it--they started to sing!

He stared down at U-ville, not trusting his eyes,
What he saw was a shocking, disgusting surprise!
Every U down in U-ville, the tall and the small,
Was singing! Without any towers at all!

He HADN'T stopped U-Ville from singing! It sung!
For down deep in the hearts of the old and the young
Those Twin Towers were standing, called Hope and called Pride,
And you can't smash the towers we hold deep inside.

So we circle the sites where our heroes did fall,
With a hand in each hand of the tall and the small,
And we mourn for our losses while knowing we'll cope,
For we still have inside that U-Pride and U-Hope.

For America means a bit more than tall towers,
It means more than wealth or political powers,
It's more than our enemies ever could guess,
So may God bless America! Bless us! God bless

May God continue to bless Charlie as he continues through life, and you, Kendall and Leah too, as you face any challenges that lay ahead. Warmest regards

He is SO CUTE!!!!!

Happy News!! Good luck!

I've been following along for some time now, and this is just marvelous news! My son was born on 9/11, and like you, the date really freaked me out at first. But it is nice to have a reason to celebrate the day rather than loathe it.

Congratulations to you and yours!

Go Charlie! That's wonderful news :)



Fingers are crossed for a good homecoming.

So exciting! We are a phone call away any time of the day or night when you get home -- and I mean that with all my heart and so does Carl...wait till you get him home into the quiet, its so amazing to be there, in your cozy home, with no buzzing or beeping or nurses or strangers....heavenly. I am so happy for you. Let me know if I can help you tomorrow in any way. I can't wait to see him again! :)

What wonderful news!!

Sending love, love, love...

Fake Grandma

Happy Welcome Home Day from Oklahoma!
I have been following the progress and thought today would be a good day to scream it from the roof tops

much love and god bless
have fun with that precious baby boy!

It's the 11th. I hope as I was reading this and as I'm typing this comment that you are receiving final instructions and dotting "i's" and crossing "t's" in preparation for Charlie's homecoming. Duke still prays for Charlie Miller EVERY night. I think it's becoming a compulsion! He's willing your little boy to soar!

Without exaggeration, Charlie is one of the cutest baby boys I've ever seen. He's adorable! So excited for you and Kendall!

Your last sentence moves me...

WHAT AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL NEWS!!!... and such a handsome little boy!

WONDERFUL NEWS!! Congratulations to you all! What a great way to turn this tragic date around to something so good!

Sorry let me correct that last sentence. Most of all, everything wonderful and great for Charlie.

Hello Little Man Charlie,
