Seth is even better!

What a happy day, for which I praise God! He was down to 3 liters/minute of flow and 35% oxygen with lovely oxygen saturation levels for most of the time I was there today. The respiratory therapist says he's getting so close! He can come home on tube feedings, so we don't need to worry about the whole learning to eat thing in the hospital. He'll be able to work on that at home. He really wanted to nurse today, which was encouraging and special for me! He couldn't actually do it, but he definitely has the idea and loved the comfort of it. I want him HOME. Even though tonight wasn't the easiest baby-wise, they are all still so precious and generally happy. We lined them up in the tub and bathed them - pictures tomorrow.

I was just reminded this evening that my sister's graduation is on Sunday at 11 a.m. - I am so forgetful these days! If maybe 3 people are available from 10:00 to about 2:00, I sure would love to go to that. Obviously my family is going to be there, so I can't call on them. :} Sorry, I realize it's Sunday and so many of you go to church. If I can't go at least my sister will know I've tried!

Also, we have two volunteers coming at 2:00, but if I do make it to the graduation and someone can stay later, I'd love to go out to eat with the family to "celebrate" afterwards. That would just be icing on the cake, though. :) I am already more blessed than I ever thought possible! (Gavin actually has a chance to fly with someone tomorrow afternoon, so I can't take that away from him.)

One last thing: I should clarify that the masked volunteer in the photo yesterday hadn't gotten her flu shot, hence the mask for a two-day visit. She already had the DTaP or TDaP or whatever it's called. :)

Love and greatest appreciation!
