« Charlie’s First Weekend | Main | Crossover Event »

September 17, 2009



My prayers are always with Charlie and all of you. I feel your pain and concerns very deeply. Charlie has such a good medical team ~ you can count on them to do the best for him.

Thanks for taking the time to share with us.


Drats! Well, hopefully this is just a bump in the road and he'll be back home soon. Maybe he has a touch of his father's side, just when you relax and think everything is fine...Bam! He really is in great hands and the upside is he is getting absolute attention 24-7 which is what he needs right now. Can't wait to hear that he's home to stay and we're sure he will be soon. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.

Oh Danny.....what a setback. I was thinking about all of you and how you were home for the new year and what a wonderful blessing that is. I will pray that everything goes well and you are all home for Yom Kippur (or sooner).

I am so glad though that you had such a joyful week with Charlie home.
It will be that way again soon.

My prayers and thoughts are with all of you always.

Well shit. This wasn't supposed to happen. Good luck with the surgery and I hope that your hospital stay is a short one. I'll be thinking of you. The spigot is called an extraventricular drain (EVD). And I am optimistic that he wont need it. My bet is a VP shunt malfunction, not an infection! Just a quick plumbing repair...


Oh dear, I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. Sending my prayers your way.

Oh no. I can't say it better than you. Crap. Will be hoping and praying that this PICU stay is short and smooth and that Charlie is home soon. Minus Ferengi head.

Will be thinking of Charlie tomorrow, I'm so saddened that he has landed up back in hospital. But perhaps now he has had a taste of the good life at home he will be even more determined to bust back out of there.

One minute at a time, babies.

I swear to gawd it's a test they make up for us to see how much we can take. I just happy that you know all the team members, have a lot of support, and aren't new to the routine. Try to take a little bit of comfort in that as you work this knot out.

How well I know that chart. Whenever we have pain conversations it's always out touchstone!


Awww Danny, that sucks. But it's better to have found it and get it fixed now rather than in the middle of Rosh Hashana. Shana Tovah, btw. I apologize profusely for being so quiet these past few weeks, but we've been having our own tsuris with my yeled gadol and it's been horrible, so I'm really the wrong person to be kvelling right now. But I think of you and Charlie, who has the same Hebrew name as my son, all the time. I just wish I could be cheerier.

Sorry to hear about this. You'll all remain in my thoughts. Best for the new year! It is sure to get better.

Oh, Danny.

A few more weeks. It's a setback but now you (and Charlie) have a taste for fresh air. You'll get it again.

Thinking of all of you constantly.

It hurts.

I am just leaving a comment, otherwise how would you know that I visited as every post, and am trying to carry you in my thoughts always. Charlie and his beloved family will be in our mi sheberach.

Three steps forward, one step back. That's life, unfortunately. But we do manage to inch ahead, however slowly.

Prayers that Charlie rebounds and soon gets back to his cozy home nest.

Fake Grandma

Will be praying extra hard for you all with the happiness and love you've shared.

We're here on your blog and you're here in our hearts.

I'm so sorry Charlie's back in the hospital, but I'm glad you had a good week. Here's hoping you can return to domestic bliss asap. I'm sending positive thoughts.


He's a fighter. He'll win this round, too. A happy and **healthy** year to you all, from us all.

Danny, so sorry for the set-back, but we pray that it's minor. I've never dropped Chuck Miller from my prayers, and the rest of you, too. Amy, Yaffa, Zahara, Nadav, Rafael, Margalit and I wish you all a year of nothing but joy, sweetness, and peace and HEALTH. We are all looking forward to meeting our little cousin and our bigger cousins someday soon.
L'shana tovah, Alan

How wonderful for Charlie to have such vigilant parents. Some would have dismissed those signs of trouble altogether. Peace be with you as you prepare for Charlie's next homecoming.

What a drag! I remember knowing that the statistics said that Macey would need a shunt revision, but feeling so bummed when it actually happened. Hopefully you are just getting it out of the way and things will be smooth sailing from here on out. Best of luck with the surgery and your stay in the PICU!

Oh Danny. Thinking of you...

I'm so sorry. I hope it all goes well and Charlie gets to go back home soon.

I am so sorry he is back in the hospital. Sweet wee boy. I will keep you all in my thoughts.

Damn rollercoaster. I know how ready you are to get off this ride.
I hope Charlie's surgery goes well and he's soon back home.

Shana Tova

l'shana Tova!
As my family is getting ready to go to our Little Spring Glen NY shul, I had to check your blog. Will pray for charlie and your family.
I suppose he's in recovery by now and all will be well.


Prayers from Minnesota heading your way.

I pray that he/she watches over Charlie and sends him home to his loving family quickly. I hope my prayers count even though they are not done in shul but in my heart at home.

L'shana tova.


I hope that everything goes well for Charlie. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.


Charlie is the most couragous person I know. You and Kendall come-in a close second. All of you are in our prayers.


L'Shana Tova, and extra prayers for Charlie.

Damn evil eye! We will be keeping the entire family in our thoughts this weekend!

Dear Ones...So sorry to read this news...And prayers are coming your way right now...! I hope ALL is going well today....And that the operation to correct this situation has taken place and that Charlie is in "recovery"....You all have been through so much, Danny....I pray that dear little Charlie will come through this with flying colors.

Oh, this is JUST not fair!! Our prayers still with you. oxox Emily

Danny! Sending love and blessings!

hoping and praying for a quick return home!

Oh, I'm so sorry. Sorry above all that Charlie has to endure more surgery. I hope, hope, hope they only have to reposition the outlet. But there's been something fishy about that damn shunt from the get-go.

You sound fortified by the week at home with him. You and he have my prayers among so many others. May you all be back home together soon.

I'll light a candle for that sweet boy this weekend.

Well, damn. This isn't fair. Many prayers for Charlie and a successful surgery tomorrow coming from out here in the East.

Happy and healthy new year to all of you. May the new year bring Charlie and your entire family good health.

Dear Danny,

My niece, Debbie, is going to put in a good word for little Chaim at temple tomorrow. Agnostic that I am, I'm knocking on wood & spitting.


Oh, dear, how disappointing... but a lot of us are sending positive vibes your way, and hopefully Charlie will be home soon for good!
