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

Gavin's mid-day post

I just talked with Carrie for a while at the hospital.  Seth's newest x-ray came back and things have improved.  His color is better and he is acting quite normal and happy-- crawling all over the place and giving Carrie a big hug when she arrived.  The doctor thinks that last night's events may have been largely due to some "junk" inside of his lungs coming loose and blocking his airways temporarily.  They also said that it is not too unusual for a patient to take a downward dive like this shortly after plateauing briefly, then improving after that.

Given this morning's tough report, this more recent news is much easier to handle.  I was kind of a basketcase this morning.  A combination of jet-lag, Marcie being scared to come to me, and the bad report on Seth really had me thrown for a loop.  I kept praying, "Lord, what are you doing here?"  I know I don't need to know specifics, but just need to remember He has it all in perfect control and is holding Seth (and all of us) in His everlasting arms.

I'm doing much better now, with a few more hours of sleep under my belt and Seth's encouraging report.

Today is another wonderful reminder of the amazing network of friends we have here that have come to help with the babies (or just take them home with them)!  Thank you all so much!
