RoseMary Teresa Update

There is so much to be thankful for as RoseMary Teresa continues to enjoy each day. Today was her 38th day of life and she continues to be happy and peaceful.
We are amazed, awed and humbled not only by the factof RoseMary Teresa's life, but by how many other lives she has touched. Her simple, beautiful, yet precarious existence serves as a reminder that each day really is a gift, with each moment to be savored and appreciated. God is good.
RoseMary Teresa is eating and sleeping well. On Friday, when the nurse came, she weighed 6 lbs 8 1/2oz and continues to gain weight nicely. Her color is good, she is breathing well and is very peaceful. RoseMary Teresa is awake longer now. She has two periods a day when she awake with her eyes wide open for a good hour at a time. Mary will move her face close to RoseMary and RoseMary Teresa, with eyes opened wide, will just stare into her mommy's eyes.
RoseMary and her family had a great Thanksgiving. All nine of her brothers along with her mommy and daddy were home with RoseMary Teresa for Thanksgiving. When you live each day in gratitude for every moment of life, Thanksgiving takes on an even more special meaning. To highlight the day, RoseMary Teresa celebrated the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the first time at her parish church.
RoseMary's brother Tom had to go back to college after Thanksgiving to finish the semester but her oldestbrother Joe got to stay home as his semester abroadended with the Thanksgiving holiday. Having Joe home adds just a little extra something. For mom, dad and RoseMary, its just nice to have the oldest back homefor a while. Its nice for the other boys as well, not just because they love their brother but also because, since he is unencumbered by any scholastic responsibility, he can focus on covering his share of the household chores.
One small chore, which no one really considers a chore, is to stand guard duty over RoseMary to protect her from her youngest brother Jack's excessive and potentially smothering attentions while Mary takes care of a small household duty. The irony is that each time Mary puts the call out for guard duty, it is always Jack who is the first responder. He'll drop everything, race to his mother and declare, "I gawd RoseMawie". This results most times in RoseMary's honor guard consisting of two "protectors" just incase one may be needed to protect her from her protector.
Mary was saying it is so much easier to trust confidently in God's goodness rather than to worry and be anxious. But this does require a lot of discipline.It is your prayers which help so much. Mary and David and the entire family are so grateful for your prayers. They continue to live, confident in God's mercy and grateful for each day. It is your prayers that continue to sustain RoseMary Teresa. Please continue to keep Mother Teresa hard at work interceding on RoseMary Teresa's behalf. Thank you for your faithful persistence.

RoseMary Teresa Update.

From her Uncle Joe:

RoseMary Teresa had a very big weekend. On Friday she celebrated her fourth week of life.
The celebrations kicked off with the arrival, onFriday, of Mary's sisters Charlotte, Patricia andElizabeth who traveled from New York and Pittsburgh respectively. What with three new aunt's in addition to Mary, Meg, and Meg's sister in law Jane, RoseMary Teresa received the most concentrated feminine attention than she has in perhaps her entire life. For the first time in a long time, RoseMary's brothers and boy cousins, normally the dominating force on the compound, were softly pushed into the background as her aunts doted on and pampered her for a solid two days.
The Hollywood paparazzi have nothing on the number ofpictures and video RoseMary Teresa's aunts expended incapturing RoseMary Teresa's beauty on film this weekend. Of course RoseMary Teresa graciously complied with all of her aunt's photographic requests. Not surprisingly, every picture came out perfectly.
For two solid day's, RoseMary basked in the loving company of her adoring Aunts, as she enjoyed hearing the latest news, old family stories, and of course a tremendous amount of laughter.
Throughout it all, she slept peacefully, ate, looked about, slept some more, and pleased her aunts to no end with her singular facial expressions. It is reported that RoseMary even cried briefly. This is very unusual for RoseMary Teresa who really has not cried during her entire short life. Her aunts were very pleased to witness this spectacular event. We think that it was in fact RoseMary's way to set theirminds at ease in the knowledge that she is aware ofthe tools available to her in dealing with her brothers if they should at anytime become unruly.
The weekend ended with the arrival of David's brother Phil and his wife Lisa on Sunday. RoseMary Teresa was visibly pleased to be able to meet and be held and loved by her uncle and aunt as well as to beintroduced to her cousins Anthony (6) Adrianna (5) andAllisondra (1).
It was a great weekend as RoseMary Teresa soaked up the love of her mommy, daddy, aunts, uncles, cousins,and all of you, her extended family. That's what she does, she thrives on love. It defines her life. It is in fact what keeps her alive. Don't doubt it for a minute, RoseMary Teresa lives on all of your loving prayers and sacrifices. There is something about this simple, beautiful baby that attracts so many to her in love and then causes them to love others even more.
Yet she is just a baby, a beautiful, peaceful, perfect baby. Perhaps it's like Mother Teresa used to say,"God uses nothingness to show His greatness".
Thank you all for your continued prayers. They are powerful and they are working. One of Mother Teresa's favorite prayers was the Memorarae. She used to suggest that people say the Memorarae or even a novena of nine Memorarae to ask Our Blessed Mother to petition Our Lord on their behalf. In storming heaven,this is very effective artillery.
Please continue to persevere in prayer and to keep Mother Teresa hard at work, interceding on RoseMaryTeresa's behalf.
God Bless

An update on Rosemary Teresa.

Received in an email today:

I belonged to the same homeschool group that baby Rosemary Teresa's family belonged to. I was just completely amazed AGAIN at how this tiny fragile little baby girl has brought folks ALL OVER THE WORLD to prayer. Thank you praying for her and encouraging other folks to pray for her as well. She just celebrated her 21st day of life out of the womb this past friday and actually gained a few ounces. Her heart is soooo fragile and every minute with this baby is so precious to her family. We keep praying for a healing miracle if it be within the Lord'sWill,,,however we can already call her living with us here on earth for as long as she has a true miracle.

Answered prayers.

Baby Mylene has been on my prayer intentions for the last couple of weeks.

This is the message her mom just posted:

Thank you all so much for the prayers! We've had miraculous news! We went back to Scottish Rite on Friday and they declared her cured! The ultrasound tech who did her images that day for the doctor was asking me "now which hip had the problem?" as she was doing the pictures so I had a feeling before we saw the doctor that we were going to get good news. The doctor said her hips are solid without a sign of dysplasia!!!

Praise God from who all blessings come.

Special Prayer Request.

Rose Mary Therese was born last Friday. She has a disorder called Trisonomy 18 (or is it 19?) which basically attacks many of the bodily organs. Many babies die within minutes of being born when they have this. RoseMary Teresa is still alive and may go home tomorrow. However, she will likely not live much longer as her heart is in a bad way. The family is asking for prayers to Mother Teresa for the baby's intercession. She is the youngest of 10 (all older brothers).

Please all pray for baby Rose Mary Therese and her parents.
