Building upon Richard Furman’s legacy…George has big shoes to fill!

I spent the day at The Duke Endowment and found this statue of Mr. Richard Furman, the name sake of Furman University. Sarah’s great-great grandfather was named in his honor, Richard Furman Landrum. We named our son George Landrum Rettew to honor the Landrum name, her grandmother’s maiden name. Sarah’s grandmother was a Landrum, attended Furman University in the 1930’s, and spent years documenting the history of the Landrum’s including the family relationship with the Furman family.

It was like a Symphony…South Carolina Systems of Care! #twinslife #nicu

 

The morning started at 3:30am Saturday, June 10th being awaken by Sarah saying something is wrong. As I rubbed my eyes trying to figure out what was going on, I realized her swift movements to the bathroom indicated I better jump into action. As I ran into the bathroom, I looked at Sarah as tears ran down her face. I knew…I better call Dr. Hearn immediately. I wondered…how did this start.

I have a huge heart for nursing. #TwinsLife #NICU

First of all…I have a huge heart for nursing. My mom and sister are nurses. This image brings me joy, peace, and gratitude to the many nurses who have and are still providing the very best care to George and Henry. Nurse Lynn was giving George a bath and the way she held him, looked at him, cared for him; showcases the amount of care she brings to each child in the NICU. As I read the website for the Bryan Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Greenville Children’s Hospital…I read about the team of experts. Dr. Stewart, Dr. Halliday, and the many physicians have been so wonderful to our family. But I wanted to read about the nurses in the NICU. These nurses give so much of their time, energy, expertise, and daily care for each of the children. We have built special bonds with these nurses. They leave little notes on the boards next to their weights each day. They take time to teach us how to correctly give George and Henry a bottle, give them a bath, change their clothes with so many cords connected, read the monitors that show all the important vitals, and give us hugs when we are discouraged. These nurses bring comfort to Sarah and I as we leave our children each night to sleep 30 miles away. I am thankful to the nurses like Lynn. She represents the heart beat of the NICU, and I truly thankful for the care she provides! #TwinsLife #NICU #Canon #5Dmkiii #yeahthatgreenville

Rosebud’s reaction to each little facial expression. #TwinsLife #NICU

It was so funny to watch Rosebud react to each little facial expression. As she opened the doors to the isolette, Henry was letting out a big yawn. She thought it was the most amazing thing to witness. There is so much fun being reminded to capture, embrace, and celebrate the little moments in time! #NICU #Rosebud #TwinsLife #Canon #5Dmkii

Love seeing Rosebud peeking into Henry’s isolette. #TwinsLife #NICU

I love this picture. I love seeing Rosebud peeking into Henry’s isolette, checking on him this morning. Henry is looking right at her, both staring at each other. They are forming their bond, becoming kindred spirits. I think I will hold this picture for the day when Henry and Rosebud fight for the first time. #NICU #Rosebud #TwinsLife #Canon #5Dmkiii

Trust allows someone to have, use, or look after (someone or something of importance or value) with confidence.

There are so many ways to look at the word trust. Many in the financial and business world look at the word either through a relational perspective or a contractual perspective.
