We are a family of fifteen: eight already with Jesus and seven in desperate need of Him. This is the story God is writing in our lives. Proverbs 16:9

Making Progress

It was a blessing yesterday for our nurses to pull together and put us all in one room for the afternoon and evening. Micah and I had spent the night prior and morning on different floors of the hospital without good communication. If there is anything we have learned about having three babies, it is the importance of being a team. He is my team, humanly speaking. I really needed him for encouragement yesterday and God provided.

After a restful, non-alarming monitors, night for the girls, both of them are going home.  They decided they didn't need any more oxygen and each took off their respective nasal cannulas at different times yesterday.  We are very thankful they have done so well!

Isaac has to stay a while longer.  He is still requiring oxygen during sleep.  It is normal for our respiration to slow and even oxygenation to decrease during periods of rest, but his is still decreasing more than it should.  He is his normal, cute, smiley, wild-man self during awake time and doesn't require any additional support.  He loves to stand and jump up and down in his hospital crib:)  He is taking bottles well.  Even so, he just needs a little more time. 

So... this is today.  Please continue to pray for all of us~ especially Isaac.  I also believe Andrew isn't feeling well this morning.  We pray God will meet all our children's needs as human hands love and care for each one of them.

So thankful to hear that the girls are going home and that Isaac is also doing better though he is still in the hospital. Praying he comes home soon too!

Being separated has to be the hardest part. Praying for continued healing.
