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

Please pray for Seth, especially.

With five babies at different stages of wellness, it's quite a roller coaster around here.  

Seth is facing the biggest challenges right now.  He is not breathing well and his oxygen levels are dropping significantly.  His lungs are over-dilating as well and so he is on the best, gentlest respirator.  

Grace (the smallest baby at 1 lb 12 oz) has a large hole between her pulmonary artery & aortic artery. It is a common issue in preemies that sometimes needs to be taken care of with medicine or possibly surgery.  She also has water on her lungs (pulmonary edema).  She has been started on the medication in hopes of closing the hole. If it doesn't close by Monday she will likely need surgery.

Seth also has a hole in the same place, but his is smaller & not yet needing treatment. Pray that his hole closes naturally. 


They have been unable to get a PICC line into David & Marcie Jane. Please pray that on Sunday a nurse practitioner will be able to insert a PICC line in David's arm & Marcie's leg. If PICC line insertion fails, these 2 babies will require surgery for port catheters.
On Thursday all 5 babies will have routine brain scans to be sure none have brain bleeds.
Baby Will continues to thrive!



We are confident in the abilities of the doctors and nurses watching after them, especially since these issues are things they have seen and taken care of many times before.  We are more confident in our Lord and His ability to care for each of these little ones in ways we humans would never imagine!  


Please pray for Carrie also, as this is a very emotional time for her in many ways.  

I, too, ask for your prayers.  I'm feeling tugged in many different directions and my brain is having a harder time making decisions and multi-tasking.  

Love to all and many thanks for your prayers,

Gavin

  5. Praying for the entire Jones family! The NICU is a roller coaster ride we all couldn't wait to get off of. Just as another mother once told me, "the highs will be high and the lows will be low. It's 2 steps forward and 4 steps backwards some days". Thinking of your family everyday & praying for you all!

  6. Sending prayers and hugs to all of you. I know what you're going through; my little one was 3 months early and in the hospital for 5-1/2 months after he was born. Prayer and believing is so powerful; it will get you through the days ahead. Valerie

  11. Twitter is but one social site that may leverage the marketing methods of many web marketers, to gain success in
    online business. It has millions of active users who promote their
    products and services, network with their friends, send messages and much more.

    Then when a lot more visitors go to your blog,
    the far more followers you'll acquire.

  14. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  15. Cellulite is an unsightly dimpled appearance, especially around the thighs.

    Water, suction, laser, massage and now there is the electric muscle inspiration.
    Finding a way to prevent it in the first place remains an impossibility until science can tell us where it comes
    from.

  17. When covering the area, it should be enough to use a regular bandage.
    As a word of caution you should also never try to manually remove the warts
    yourself, as that can lead to the virus spreading. Others think tanning and sunning themselves will dry up their skin and pimples to eliminate their acne.
