Seth worse; reinfection?

We so appreciate your prayers for Seth. He's needing continuous oxygen now, but it's not a problem to keep the cannula on him because he just sleeps all day long. He is obviously one sick boy, but judging from how sick the others have been and are, it's no surprise.

Gavin and I wonder if we've all been double-infected with two strains of respiratory virus. Our house help came to work Monday with a cough. I was hoping it was the one the kids already had, but looking back I realize that's impossible since she hadn't been here since the Wednesday before. So I think she brought yet another cold into our house (there's a lot of colds going around now). Poor five little munchkins! Gavin and I are getting symptoms, too, and we pray that the symptoms stay at bay so we can care for this miserable little lot. We sure appreciate your prayers for our stamina and patience and love, too! We heard a great Easter sermon (streamed from our Meeting House here) about how EVERYTHING in the Christian faith is based on the fact that Christ is RISEN. It helps to have that infinitely grander, eternal perspective. We know that God is sovereign, and for some reason this was the Easter He ordained for us to have. He is with us, He is in us, He is for us, because Christ is risen indeed.
