Update Sunday Sept 8 with pictures of all but Seth

I guess Seth has had his share of attention in pictures the past few posts so I don't need to feel guilty that there are no pictures of him. He's been sleeping most of the time, so that precludes a lot of photo ops. 

It's been up and down, up and down around here. From S.O.S.-type chaos to unusually calm (as now). This morning for about 30 minutes we were barely hanging in there between vomiting episodes, and this afternoon I wondered if we were going to have to head to the ER because Seth was low-satting again. Thankfully, whatever was plugging up Seth's airways cleared after some good coughing (and more) on his part. Alas, the tummy bug has afflicted all five babies now. We've done 9 or 10 loads of laundry in the past two days and given innumerable baths. All the beds have been stripped multiple times and remade multiple times, including Isaac's bed because that's where we were unfortunately holding Seth when he erupted last night. :)

Seth has no voice at this point. It's so pathetic! It's also sad that he is doubly sick with cold and gastroentestinal yuckies. Poor punkin'. He remains perpetually sweet, though! 

Thanks again to all the volunteers who make LIFE possible right now! With Seth still receiving treatments lasting 25 or so minutes every four hours around the clock (last night's was 3 a.m.), I appreciate the help and prayers even more than normal. 

Seth's diaper needs a desperate change. Gotta run!


Gracie (yes, in a blue sleeper), the last of the five to succumb to the new tummy bug
My lovely mother Jane and my lovely daughter Marcie Jane
Mom has been here a LOT and done more dishes and more laundry than anyone can keep count of - thank you!
Dad has also been here probably more than he's been at his own house. :) Thank God for close grandparents when all five kiddos and the nanny are sick. Please pray for stamina for us all. This has been a demanding past month.  

There are more baths happening around here than normal, in addition to the loads upon loads of yucky laundry!

Gracie is in love with her little pony. She really knows how to ride it, too!
The kids are moving in a herd more and more. The cutest thing is their crawling in a line.
