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

Seth Thursday afternoon.

I'm sitting in the San Francisco airport, about to board the last leg of my journey.  This has been a LONG Thursday.  I left PNG on Thursday morning about 30 hours ago and it's still only mid-afternoon on the same day!

I've gotten some news from Carrie.  Seth is doing well today.  He was needing a lot of oxygen to keep his saturations up, but then they discovered that his nasal passages were really clogged up.  They were able to clear them out  quite well and his oxygen requirements went down significantly (from 2 liters to 1/2 liter).  He's on a diuretic to get water off his lungs.  His tests came back positive for rhinovirus and negative for bacterial pneumonia.  He's in good spirits and, Lord-willing, will be home soon.

Thanks to all for your prayers and support for the family while I've been away.  It was a very good, productive trip.  It was hard to leave the place and community of PNG, but will be wonderful to see my family again.

In Him,

Gavin
