Update on Will and Seth

I keep forgetting to mention that Seth is doing better as far as weight gain (He gained a whopping 7 ounces in just two days on continuous feeds!) and also with vomiting, but he did empty his tummy onto the cement overlooking the fountain in the cute picture I just posted. :} I think all the excitement got to him! So please keep praying he'll continue gaining weight and will be able to go back to bolus (all at once) feeds so he doesn't need to be hooked up to a plastic tube all day long. The other babies are WAY too mobile and interested in it! And please continue to pray he stops vomiting altogether.

Will remains kinda sorta sick, mostly just feeling warm to the touch, and now David and Marcie do too. I bet it wouldn't even register on a thermometer. I woke up with a slight scratchy throat and stuffy nose, so I guess that's what the babies are fighting too. The good news is it's extremely mild. I don't feel sick at all, and the babies are all really happy - hooray! :)

So thanks for praying! Prayer works, I am reminded over and over again - or rather, our loving, all-powerful and holy Father works through and in (and sometimes even despite) our prayers.

Love and gratitude,
Carrie

P.S. David's favorite place to be is under the glass-topped wrought-iron kitchen table. There must be a lot of scope for the imagination down there. I can see his little bald head as I type. :)
