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

Saturday night Oct 6

 Thanks so much for praying for weight gain for Grace! Even after a 72 g "blowout" (poor nurse), she was 3 lb 14 oz tonight! That's 2.5 oz of gain.

Gracie's onesie says "I'm kind of a big deal"
True!! :)

Thanks also for praying for good oxygen saturations and heart rates. Only one episode today, and it was Gracie, the smallest/youngest. Marcie was able to go down on the pressure being delivered by cannula, and all three kids on oxygen at St. Paul are needing less than yesterday. Please pray that continues!

Amazing "Aunt" Deb with David and Will

Will was eager to socialize until we swaddled him.

Better get used to that face, Will! You'll be seeing her a lot! :)

Peeping little Marcie, enjoying the pacifier-holder her mom contrived

Sweet sleepy David

Will and David both nursed awesome today, and Seth is doing really well at Children's. He was so alert when we went to visit him! I love how he looks right into our eyes when we talk to him. I also love that they've been able to wean his machine settings and nitric oxide without him needing too much more oxygen (60% still, though, so PLEASE KEEP PRAYING) and without his carbon dioxide going high. The nurse did say it's still pretty serious that he's on the oscillator support at this age, not even able to tolerate a regular ventilator, so he's obviously greatly in need of the Lord's healing touch. He grew more last night, though, so is well over 5 lbs, praise God! We are deeply grateful and encouraged by blessings in the midst of the uncertainty. We love him so much; we passionately hope God's will includes his complete earthly healing very soon. Thank you for all the prayers and kind words from everyone, even as far away as Ireland, Norway and Australia (not to mention PNG, of course)!

Love and gratitude,

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