And the Storm Rages On...

Greetings all, I have to be honest I write this blog with tearfilled eyes. First I want to say that our faith is unshaken and our Hope is strong! Disappointed, Yes, but not Afraid! The operation this morning did not go as we had hoped. Cate's heart is not ready. Neither one of the ventricals are pumping like they should. The right ventricle is not pumping correctly due to the large amount of muscle that was removed, but the left vetricle could have been one of two things: 1) its just simply exhausted from the surgery or 2) that there might be some coranary artery issues. He ordered a Heart Catheterization which is where they inject dye into her blood and take pictures of her heart. He said Coronary Artery is fine, which is really good news, we don't need another surgery right now, but at the sametime its frustrating cause it means that we have to wait longer and we are still not completely certain what is going on. Yes, Cate is still on the Ecmo machine and a ventilator and will be for the next couple of days for sure. The surgeon wants her heart to rest for a couple of days before they try anything again. The words its a marathon are ringing very true right now. We have only been in this for 3 days now and it feels like a month. We are tired, dehydrated (by our own doing, DANG YOU STARBUCKS) and hungry, something that I don't frequently experience, and this is only day 3. This afternoon Ali and I's emotions have been running wild, I sat on the bed at the hotel and cried, LOUDLY, for fifteen minutes, I just want to see her smile, I want to hear her laugh, I want to feel her little hand on my face, but I can't and that is just hard right now. I know that we are in the best place we could be, so I have to take some comfort in that. I know that all of you are praying deligently, and I am grateful for that. Our friend who is a fellow here at TCH came by on his day off when he heard about how the morning went, He has been calling getting updates on her. He took one look at me and said, no more coffee, 2 large bottles of water, 2 larger bottles of gatorade, and you need to go to bed right now. He asked me how much sleep i have gotten since friday, I thought about it, 6 to 8 hours, he said GO TO BED. He said, your little girl is on the "circuit" that is shoptalk for the Echmo machine, he said she is on cruise control right now, does it suck, yes, is there anything you can do, no. He reminded us again that this is a marathon and we must pace ourselves. I think we are going to take the evening to rest, thank you all for your comments, you really don't know how much they mean to Ali and I, they truly give us encouragement right now. I have to be ask a huge favor, Please do not forget about Cate or Us, we need you, in a day, a two, or three, we will still be here and we will still need you praying for Baby Cate and Us. Ali and I have said on many different occassions that we have truly felt your spiritual support and we will continue to need it in the days and weeks to come, so that is my request, please be deligent with us, because we NEED you! Our faith is not Shaken by todays events, Our hope is not weakend in the least bit! Today as we got the news that Cate was going to have to stay on the machine and tears filled my eyes I looked through the glass doors of the waiting room and there stoody Deacon Ed Gosline, a dear friend of mine's dad, and he had in his hand a pyx with the Holy Eucharist in it, it was like in the midst of the the waves crashing in, there was Jesus, my calmer. I walked over and just cried on Deacon Ed's should as he held the Eucharist close to my heart. So we will remain faithful to our faithful God. I got to see Cate a few minutes ago and she looks beautiful. They cleaned her up and put a little blanket under her, so you know what, the world is good. My girl is resting, her heart is resting, and before long her mommy and daddy will be resting. We love you guys, please stay with us during this time!

Charlie and Ali,

The Black-Celis Family from St. Laurence is praying for you and will continue to do so. I'm on the Medical Center side of town a lot because I work close to there. If there is anything you EVER need (home cooked meal or whatever) please, let me know.

You, Ali and Cate are in my thoughts and prayers.

In Christ's Love,
Ana Black

Praying for your precious Cate.

Dr. Jorge Salazar was our daughter's surgeon 4 years ago when he was still in San Antonio at Christus Santa Rosa working with Dr. John Calhoon. He is brilliant!!! God sent you to a gifted doctor.

I know it is hard to do, but you must take care of yourselves because you aren't any good to your daughter or anyone else if you collapse from exhaustion, so please take your friend's advice and drink, eat and sleep. Rest in the Lord and know that His plans and timing are perfect.

God Bless You,
Kayla

Charlie and Ali....we will not leave you alone. We are going through this with you. You are right, your beautiful Jesus in the Eucharist came to you when He knew you needed him most. It's all true...it's all true. No one will forget your little lamb.

Father Chester dedicated an entire Mass for her at Wisdom today. The Carmelites are on their knees. We are in the marathon with you.

Ali and Charlie,
Know we are all praying for you from St. Thomas More. So many have offered to help so just say the word when you are ready - we can provide whatever you may need- water, Gatorade, yummy home cooked food and Starbucks! Mostly we are and will be praying at Mass and in the chapel for you all diligently. Thanks you so much for sharing your faith and your journey. The Heart of our Blessed Mother and our Lord have surrounded Caste’s heart and the angels are with her. REST!!!
Peace be with you both.
May God bless you and keep you and guide you always,

I'm going to go to The Academy tomorrow and leave an intention in the shine! BE STRONG!! You both are amazing role models to everyone and should be proud of yourselves! Love, Erin Dawson

Ali & Charlie,

We know and understand that same terrible feeling of anxiety you both must be experiencing as you stand aside and watch all of the brilliant nurses and doctors treat your precious daughter. Take comfort in knowing that she is in the best of hands. We are praying that your precious Cate will continue to have small miracles of progress in each and every moment. May our good Lord continue to give you strength and comfort during this marathon.

Love,

Charlie and Ali,

I am heading to staff Service Crew for Steubenville South minutes from now. You guys know what all of that is about...you guys know how many people are there. I will make it my goal throughout Service Crew week and the conference weekend to ask for as many prayers as I possibly can. You are not forgotten. While this is only the beginning of the marathon for you all, it is only the beginning of the prayers. We are still praying, and a whole crew of people are about to jump on the train.

Peace to you.

You and your sweet Cate will NOT be forgotten. Your prayer warriors are standing firm with you. We have never met, and I don't think I have ever felt so called to prayer as I have been these last three days for you and your precious family. Our Father is uniting us as we pray for you and reminding us that we are the Body of the risen Christ on earth. How could we forget you? Rest well and be at peace in knowing that the vigil is being kept in prayer.

If there's one thing i promise it's that i won't forget you, and i won't. My prayer and my heart goes out to your whole family.

Charlie, Ali, and family,
You don't know me, but I joined the group Ms. Laura created months ago on facebook for Baby Cate. I have tapped into this network of faithful prayer warriors before, and I know how amazing it is to feel the prayers that you don't hear being prayed. All of you are in my prayers. Every time I get irritated or stressed out during the day, I think of you and say a prayer. Know that you have the support of family and friends who you know well and some you have never met. Thanks for inspiring me with your courage, hope, and faith. God is touching each of us through you just as he strengthens your family through the prayers of so many. May He continue to bless you.

Your faith is amazing and inspiring! In Him, Lacey Mire

Paola said...

Dear Charlie & Ali,
I was definitely thinking of baby Cate tonight at mass. Know of my prayers for your family. Gosh, I graduated from Nursing school a little over a year ago and I'm a pediatric nurse. I've seen many families go through similar situations and my heart truly goes out to you. Juts know that you are loved so much and God has baby Cate's heart in His mighty and loving hands.
*2 Cor 4:16-18*

There's a song by a band called Skillet, it's called "You are my Hope," I wanted to share the lyrics with you. If you get a chance to listen to it, it's really powerful. Here it is:

*You are my Hope*

Times are hard
Times have changed
Don't you say
But I keep holding on to you
It's hard to keep the faith alive day to day
Leaning on the strength I've found in you
You're the hope of all the Earth

You are my hope
You are my strength
You're everything
Everything I need
You are my hope
You are my life
You are my hope
You are my hope

Far beyond what I can see or comprehend
Etching your eternity in me
Nations stream and angels sing, "Jesus reigns"
And every knee bows down
You're the hope of all the Earth

You are my hope
You are my strength
You're everything
Everything I need
You are my hope
You are my life
You are my hope
You are my hope

Carry on and I sing of how
You love and I love you now
All the times that I start to sink
You come and you rescue me
You are my hope
You are my hope

Rest in Jesus. Much love and payers,
Paola :)

Charlie and Ali,
You don't know me, but I'm an aquaintance of Laura Lahaye. She has kept us posted on your daughter's battle and your family's struggle with all of this. I offer my prayers to you and your family in Jesus' name. I also would like to refer you to a scripture. Scripture is the sword of the Spirit and the enemy cannot withstand it!
Sirach 2: 1 My son, when you come to serve the Lord, prepare yourself for trials 2 Be sincere of heart and steadfast, undisturbed in time of adversity. 3 Cling to Him, forsake Him not; thus will your future be great. 4 Accept whatever befalls you, in crushing misfortune be patient; 5 For in fire gold is tested, and worthy men in the crucible of humiliation. 6 Trust God and He will help you; make straight your ways and hope in Him. 7 You who fear the Lord, wait for His mercy, turn not away lest you fall. 8 You who fear the Lord, trust Him, and your reward will not be lost.

11 Compassionate and merciful is the Lord; He forgives sins, He saves in time of trouble.

I pray in Jesus' name that Baby Cate will pull through this and be stronger than ever because of it!I pray that your family pull together in this time of struggle and when your baby is healthy, that you can praise God together and give Him glory as the ultimate physician! I also pray that you be granted all the grace and peace of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit to be able to endure this trial with faith, trust and hope in God!

Peace in Christ

Jesus asked his friends to keep watch with Him in the garden as he spent time with His Father. Regardless of what their response was to His plea, the call to all of us (your friends and loved ones) remains the same. "Stay with me." Please know that you are united in a family of brothers and sisters who are honored to follow that call to wait with you for the finish line. Rest assured and confident that you are lifted up and protected in an army of prayer that will not tire or give up on your family. Take comfort in that love.

My husband and I are praying with our expectant baby for all of you.
