But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

Day by day and with each passing moment . . .

That lovely old hymn has come to mind many times over the past several months and has special meaning today. Friends of ours with preemie twins also clung to the truth in the lyrics.

When I called tonight, Seth's carbon dioxide level was the lowest it's been, PRAISE GOD, and they were going to wean him one setting on the ventilator. PLEASE PRAY he tolerates the weaning well and does not relapse. We hope and pray, believing God is more than able, that this is the beginning of an amazing work in Seth's body.

The three "oldest" babies have had a great night with no dropped heart rates! We praise God for that, too. Glad we mentioned that as a specific item for prayer.

Gracie is still on 28 percent oxygen and actually lost some weight tonight. Please pray for her to gain strength and ability to breathe without assistance.

Thank you so much for all the comments and verses/promises some of you have left tonight. You can believe that we have been reciting some of them to ourselves for months and multiple times again today! I love the Psalm. Thanks, Francis!

Isaac was happy and peaceful at bedtime tonight. Thank you for praying for him too.

We now have permission to cradle the two ventilated babies in our arm while they are still in the isolette. The top will be raised up so we can interact more with them. Thank God for blessings like that!

Please continue to stand with us in prayer,

P.S. thank you for all the encouraging notes and thoughtful gifts!
