Quick Seth and Grace note

First, yet another P.S. about the stroller: Please tell Runabout that we sent you if you end up ordering anything from them. :o)

Re: Seth; they sent away another confirmatory virus panel, which, if it comes back negative, will allow gastroenterology to schedule his g-peg surgery. It will take 24-48 hours at least to hear back. We are praying it will be negative again so we can get this show on the road and get our pudgy big little guy home!!

Gracie is OFF of all oxygen, all meds and both inhalers as of this afternoon, for which we praise God! Her oxygen saturation was 100% in the doctor's office after being off oxygen since 7:00 or 8:00 this morning. Her lungs sounded great and her breathing was nice and slow. Hooray! We'd been tapering everything at home, except the oral meds which she basically grew out of. She weighs more than 7 pounds more than her birth weight of 1 lb 12 oz. She is now 9 lb 1.7 oz, still less than 5% on the 2-month-old (adjusted age) growth charts, but healthy as a little Shetland pony! And even more darling. :)

Love and gratitude,


  1. Praise God for all this wonderful news!! I think I will cry when Seth comes home so I can only imagine what it will mean to you. I wish to hsare something with you and I hope it is okay. I have always felt that God chooses special parents for speical circumstances. He never ceases to amaze me in his wiseness of choice. This time is no different. He chose the perfect parents for Will, David, Marcie, Grace, and sweet baby Seth, as well as Isaac. You are wonderful. Pat yourself on the back. I know you do it through God, but I also know you are amazing people who deserve a it. God bless each of you.

  2. Thank You, Lord, for Your great blessings!

  3. Great news!!! Thank you Lord!!!

    Love to all,

    Gail Boemker

  4. The good news continues - so happy for all of you! Keep up the good work and we'll keep up the prayers.

  5. Dear Carrie! I like it how you write about your babies! With so much love and hope and pride and gratitude. I (certainly;) still follow all of your news! God bless you and your family! Gabriella
