Beef Enchiladas and other blessings

Hi all,

Thank you so much for your kind words via email, this blog, and FB! Also all those who have called and offered to help here at Ukarumpa. We LOVE our community, locally and worldwide! We are so blessed. Which brings me to the subject of this post: I have been craving beef enchiladas in the worst way since Thursday night. Last night I was practically drooling for my mom's beef enchiladas from Colombia days. And guess what God sent this morning via my friend Chris? . . . a pan of beef enchiladas! With homemade tortillas made by her sweet daughter. :)

Other friends are refilling oxygen bottles, bringing meals, and coming to help or taking babies to their houses. Our washing machine broke down, so we're also sending out laundry and borrowing people's machines. With nasty vomit-laden clothes and blankets, that is a HUGE ministry!

As far as an update, I wish I had a better one to give. Not much has changed. Grace and Seth are both still on oxygen. Seth's oxygen saturations dipped into the high-60%'s in the middle of the night when his tank was empty (we switched him back to the concentrator), and this morning off oxygen he was only in the 70%'s. That's the sickest he's been, oxygen-wise, since he was last in the hospital. The crud is in both his lungs now, with noises/fluid throughout. Gracie's lungs sound clear, but she's tight and wheezy.

The pediatrician says this will take a while to resolve in Seth. He'll need Dexamethasone for several days, oxygen too. Lord willing Gracie will get through this faster, although she seems to be a couple of days behind Seth in this illness. Realistically, she could get worse before she gets better. We SO appreciate your prayers!

Better run. Love and gratitude,
