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

Off oxygen (for now)

Seth has been able to wean down his oxygen until as if a couple hours ago he is off completely! Please pray he'll be able to stay off, Lord willing, and thrive. Until he can stay off all night long he'll need to stay in the hospital, so we have one or two more nights here, hoping to fly back to Dallas (where Gavin is busily packing) on Thursday. We want to be wise, though, and not rush him.

Meanwhile, Seth is charming all the staff as he says "hi" and "bye-bye" and helps with his inhalers by holding the spacer mask on his face.

Currently we are playing in the courtyard to help loosen up the secretions in his chest. When I see his nasal discharge I understand why his chest was so plugged up! This is one nasty cold. Marcie's nose testified to the same thing. :}

PLEASE PRAY THERE IS NO MORE ILLNESS ON TOP OF THIS ONE. The mom in the room next to ours had a nasty cough, so I realize there are a lot of germs around. Plus Seth's steroid treatments to reduce lung inflammation also lower his immunity, I believe. 

Gotta run, Seth is on the move!!

Love and gratitude,
Carrie
