Seth better, but please keep praying!!

Seth is still on oxygen, but not as much (0.5 liters as I type this) and is looking and acting perkier and less miserable. He doesn't seem to be in the pain he was this morning when he would cough. He was breathing more easily (on oxygen), so that, combined with the "picture" he presented physically make our pediatrician comfortable enough leaving him here, still on oxygen. PLEASE PRAY he would continue to improve, that his lungs would fight off this infection and dry out (they're still pretty crackly sounding, although I think slightly less so than this time last night), and that he can get over this completely without needing to be hospitalized.

A related prayer request is this: We are nearly out of oxygen for the whole community, including our national neighbors in the catchment area of our clinic. Gavin is therefore driving to the closest port city (Lae) in the morning to pick up new tanks and a few other Clinic and personal items (powdered milk for all these babies!!). Please pray for his safety and for our kiddos to not be too miserable and clingy. There's sometimes not enough Mom for the whole crew's satisfaction. Seth kept trying to shove Will off my lap today, and Will was miserable too! :}

Speaking of which, he's fussing now so I'll go check on him and Seth again before bed. THANK YOU FOR PRAYING!!! I know this urgent request has gone out far and wide and we feel it!

Love and gratitude to our GREAT God,

Gavin, Carrie, Isaac, Will, David, Marcie, Seth, & Grace Jones
