Quick Wednesday morning update

First off, praise God David and Marcie gained some weight! Will did too, but that's hardly news. :) Still, we are very, very grateful.

Seth's carbon dioxide level is up to 71. They've turned up his machine to try to vent that out of him. Thank you for praying for his protection and healing. He has been resting comfortably.

Gracie looks so much better and is so much more alert after her blood transfusion last night, plus she hasn't had any more "spells," praise God! She gets two more doses of the medication to try and close her patent ductus arteriosis today. We should know by tomorrow night, I think, if the Lord chose to close off the PDA in these two days or if she will need surgery. We know His plan is best - thanks for praying!

Isaac had another disappointing day at school yesterday, largely due to the fact that it is a very regimented, strict environment, not as "warm fuzzy" as his three previous schools in the past year. He said he's really worried about messing up and being treated so "rudely," as he phrased it. (Not military material, our son.) Thank you for praying for him, and THANK YOU for the cards and gifts! He feels very loved. He saved up the money some people have sent until he had enough, combined with his saved allowance, to buy an inexpensive camera with which he can take pictures of the babies. :)

At His Feet,
Carrie, for Gavin too


  1. Dear Lord, Please help Isaac to adjust to his new school; bring peace and friends to a chaotic situation, so that Isaac can learn and have fun, and not be stressed. Please take those who have treated him rudely and soften their hearts, and resolve the issues that bring Isaac worry. Bless him as he has to deal with change and uncertainty and let him know he can count on You. Amen NKL

  2. We' Believe' Lord you are still at work....Thank-you for all the Good news..and for the peace, and weight the Babies gained...God Please in you Great Mercy Be with Isaac especially at school. surround him with kind and loving Teachers and Bless him and help him find good and Holy friends that will help with this transition of school. Help Isaac to know that many, many people are praying for him also....And Lord along with all the babies, hold Baby Seth in you Loving hand and touch and Heal every organ in his tiny body...God Bless

  3. Praying continuously for your family, especially for Isaac at school today. We have one with similar temperament, so praying specifically that he would learn how the school works quickly and that any correction or "rudeness" would not affect his gentle spirit. Love you guys!

  4. Truly the battle is the Lords. This is so much bigger than all of you combined so what a beautiful reminder that yours is to stand still and let Him work. Oh my dearest ones, I pray for and think of you so often. May today bring encouraging news on all fronts.

  5. Our boy had similar issues last year at school- Keeping Isaac in my prayers. I know how tough it is to go to school in a strange place. The babies and you all are in my prayers, too!
