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

Home again.

Seth went through the surgery just fine.  Now instead of an 18 inch tube sticking out of his stomach, he's just got a small "button" to which we can attach the feeding tube.  When the tube is snapped out of the port, you really can't tell it's there under his clothes.  It is kind of like the valve on an air mattress.  It sure makes him much more portable, since we don't have to worry any more about his tube getting yanked or pulled out.  It was painful for him, but now it should be much better.  Having him more mobile and off oxygen in the not-too-distant future should make it much easier for him to catch up to the others developmentally.

Feeding-wise, we have realized that we need to redouble our efforts in helping him get used to taking food by mouth.  Having the other four to feed and take care of makes it a challenge to focus on Seth, but we need to make him a priority more than we have.  Please pray that we can do so faithfully and successfully.

Seth is asleep now, but we'll get a picture of him with the "Mic-Key button" in due time.
