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,


  1. Prayers for the kids and for Gavin's travels on their way Carrie....deep breath Momma....it is encouraging to know his O2 has been decreased and that he is looking and sounding a bit better. Poor Will, it has got to be so hard when you want Momma's lap and there are 1 or 2 others already there! And at these times, when they are ill, ONLY Momma's lap will do no matter how many other "laps" there might be around! Thank you for the update....we know you are beside yourself at the moment.....prayers continue.

  2. Praise God for improvement! I continue to pray for recovery, and for you and Gavin as you do all that needs to be done right now. Lord, have mercy.

  3. I'm keeping you guys in my prayers. Hug those babies tight!
