PRAISE! And PRAY, please!

Seth is OFF the oscillator, on conventional ventilator with moderate settings only, at only 35% oxygen, and is still being weaned down on his oxygen!!! He has had a very favorable response to the steroids, medically-speaking, and I know thousands of prayers have gone up to the Lord on his behalf. To God be the glory! We pray this healing continues and that his little lungs don't experience any kind of rebound when the steroids are weaned. The neonatologist said that some kids with really severe varieties of BPD (bronchopulmonary dysplasia) don't respond to the steroids at all, and that he was concerned Seth would be one of those. Now, he's even hopeful that Seth could come home without a tracheostomy. Yes, Lord, please! Thank You Your work in his body! And please protect Seth's little brain in the meantime. Thank you all for your prayers in that regard, too,.

Please also pray Marcie, Will and Gracie will all be able to come home without oxygen or any breathing support. What an amazing work of our Almighty God that would be; to have had quints born so early be so healthy upon discharge! Marcie still needs some oxygen when she's eating; Will is still on it all the time, at the lowest possible flow rate, and Gracie-kins is on quite a bit of cannula support yet.

I am loving having tiny, sweet baby boy David in our home. He's been good as gold. We know he'll "wake up" and likely become a more demanding kiddo, but this new baby in our house is a dream come true and many prayers answered. We are all nuts about him, as we are about his siblings! Isaac kept saying he loved him this morning. :)

Thank you for caring and praying, as well as for the gifts, acts of service, cards, and diapers (and yes, there are always more needed, ha, ha!)!

Love in Christ,

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