But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

Quick update before bed

Carrie got to hold Seth today for the first time for an hour and a half!  It was a wonderful experience for her.  He cried a bit at first (which was wonderful to hear), a hoarse, but precious cry, then settled down and got comfortable-- too comfortable.  He decided that he was too happy to breathe, so we needed to wake him up a bit.  He is at 30% oxygen and very stable.  In comparison, Grace is on 29% right now!  The biggest prayer, of course, is that he doesn't rebound (negatively) when the steroids are weaned.  We would love it if his body can continue to act this way when the steroids are gone.

David had his first pediatric appointment today and the doctor declared him "perfect" and that he's not really recognizable as a preemie!

Grace is down on her flow to 2.5 liters per minute and doing well.

Marcie and Will are doing well, too, but not getting their full feedings from their bottles yet.  Will is getting a tiny bit of oxygen, but doing fine.  He seems to be the lazy one of the bunch, not wanting to eat or eating slowly.  He's definitely the most vocal.  He let's you know if he doesn't like something.

Bed time.
