This is the blog for Gavin and Carrie Jones and family. We live in Papua New Guinea and are working to see lives transformed by the living Word of God through Bible translation. Gavin is a helicopter pilot. Carrie, who has her degree in Public Health, is the lab supervisor and one of five lab techs at our busy rural clinic. Our son, Isaac, was born in 2004 and our quintuplets, Will, David, Marcie, Seth, and Grace, were born in 2012.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. The you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. -Proverbs 3:3-6

Itchy

It has been confirmed that Carrie does have Cholestasis, which is causing her severe itching.  It is a mild case and the doctor thinks the babies will be just fine.  She has doubled Carrie's medication that should help the condition and therefore the itching.  Unfortunately it can take up to even two weeks for the itching to go away completely.  It also seems to get worse at night (evidenced by the last two nights in Carrie), so that is really hard on her.  They are going to try some medications to help her sleep tonight, but we'll just see how it goes.

Carrie's spirits are pretty low today, especially with the prospect of possible poor sleep for some days to come.  It is really "only" the itching that is hard for her right now, but it's from head to toe.
