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

Thank you!!

1) For the extra help, extra food, extra treats, and especially extra prayers . . . our community here and prayer network around the world is truly amazing! It's such a humbling experience to be so needy, and I've certainly seen the Lord provide over and over again for exactly what we need, and often more: heaped up, shaken together, and running over!

2) For the baby shower Central Presbyterian Church had for us! What a BLESSING those gifts and cards are and will be! We feel so loved, unworthy, and grateful beyond words. I MISS YOU! I know Gavin does too!

3) For praying for Seth. He's doing more and more, activity-wise, and I've had time to work with him. Wonderful volunteers have taken it upon themselves to work with him too!

In addition, his pulmonology appointment yesterday was EXCELLENT. His lungs were clear, he had 100% oxygen saturation on only 1/16th of a liter of oxygen (the lowest possible setting on the home concentrator), and he's growing almost straight up onto the growth chart (10th percentile for a 9 month old now, even though he's only 6.5 months adjusting for his prematurity!). We've been given the go-ahead to start officially leaving the oxygen off for an hour morning and afternoon, increasing an hour every couple of days in hopes he'll be off altogether during the day within 2 to 3 weeks. After his hour off yesterday he was satting in the high nineties and pink and perky and so, so cute rolling around on the floor talking loudly to anyone and everyone. He's doing so right now while he practices sitting. It mostly sounds like he's talking to "Dada." :)

Over and over again in this crazy but ultra-blessed quint journey I've been reminded of the power of prayer. God uses our prayers and He answers! It's so convicting to me to be faithful in my prayers for others. I especially continue to pray for my friend Gina and family whose 3-year-old son died months ago in a horrible accident. If  you think of it, thank you for praying for them too. They need healing and protection and tender mercy as a family.

Gotta run - David is falling apart!

Love,
Carrie
