Thank you for your continued prayers for both babies, particularly for Seth regarding his lung disease. All the numbers were better today, so we hope and pray this is the beginning of steady improvement and evidence of God's healing in his lungs. Please pray he remains infection-free and can be stress-free, pain-free, and continue to grow well and heal completely!
Grace is on more oxygen and the CPAP mask and is a bit sensitive to movement or touch still, so I pray she gets stronger and more tolerant so we can hold her longer and more. :) She looks and is indeed SO tiny compared to her siblings!
Weights: Will is 4 lb 9 oz, David is 3'13, Seth is 3'14 (heavier than David!), Marcie Jane is 3'10, and sweet Grace is almost 2'13.
Marcie Jane is on nasal cannula as of today and is doing GREAT, as are Will and David, and all three are on room air or just the tiniest bit of oxygen (Will). We pray this continues and they can start learning to eat by mouth next week! [They are still fed my milk by stomach tube. Will and David had their first tastes on their tongues and pacifiers today, thanks to the therapist who will help teach them to eat. Will was very interested and alert. David was not so sure. He seemed a bit concerned, furrowed brow, thinking about it. Wonder what I ate!]
|Will loving his pacifier (I think he's gorgeous! I think they ALL are, of course!)|

|This picture of Will getting his pulmonary therapy (to vibrate loose lung congestion) shows how big our biggest baby is. Imagine: Grace is almost 2 lb LESS! No good pictures of her today, though.|
I am really battling a BAD sore throat. Maybe because I stay up until 12:30 blogging. Off to bed - thanks for praying for me, too, and for the babies not to get it. I wear a face mask. No kisses. :(
