Happy days!

Hi all,

Needless to say, life is perhaps busier than ever with a baby home, although David is just delightful! Gavin, grandparents, and Aunt Deb are a HUGE help. Last night, however, he was up until 1:30 with ol' Mom at the helm. So I'm a little foggy but very happy to report the following:

Grace is now 5 lb 3 oz and is off of the Vapotherm (high-flow nasal cannula), on low-flow cannula only. Will, at 8lb 9.5 oz, and Marcie, at 6 lb 5 oz, are off all oxygen. Seth, who weighs as much as Marcie, is thriving on regular CPAP (continuous pressure but no reminder breaths) on 39% oxygen! Please pray he will continue to go from "strength to strength" (Psalm 82, NLT) as the steroids leave his system and as he weans down on the pain and sedation meds from when he was on the oscillating ventilator. Gavin got to hold him; a tearful, joyful experience that happens to be on Gavin's mom's camera and not in our computer yet. :)

Love and gratitude,

The Grandpas with David

Will and Frances; Will weighs a lot more than Isaac at birth;
all 3 boys are longer than Isaac was (18+ inches). So much for my fear of "puny-ness!"
And they aren't even due until this coming Saturday :)
