Wednesday night: Seth

Hi all,

I wish I could give good news, but aside from some weight gain and his oxygen supplementation need remaining below 60% (for which we thank God) Seth is really struggling. He just doesn't have much reserve of strength or ability to tolerate even being repositioned. I think they have to turn his oxygen up during those times. His carbon dioxide has risen again, despite the higher vent setting he was put on. He is a very sick baby.

Labs, a sonogram of his heart, and an X-ray of his lungs have all been ordered for the morning, hoping, as the nurse put it, to find out SOMETHING for the benefit of Seth.

This is very hard, to say the least, but there is nothing we can do. It's all in God's hands. Seth is His boy. The battle is the LORD's.

Grace had her last dose of medication to close off her PDA. The sonogram in the morning will check if the meds worked or if she needs surgery or more meds. She's a lot feistier after her blood transfusion, thank God!

David, Will, and Grace all gained weight, for which we are truly grateful. Please pray that Marcie will gain, too. She is currently the smallest baby. However, she is also not on any oxygen, so she's doing well there.

Will keep you updated, as soon as we know anything. Thank you for praying. We need it and sense it!

Waiting on Him,

P.S. Better day at school today for Isaac! Thanks for praying!

Gavin, Carrie, Isaac, Will, David, Marcie, Seth, & Grace Jones
