Just a Quick Hi there and Hello!

I wanted to pop in and say-  I haven't forgotten about y'all. 

I've got lots going on here-- and this post is actually on borrowed internet /pc time.  My set up at home is on the fritz for now. 

I don't have a picture for you but Lil' Easton is growing.  He already weighs 7 lbs 6 oz.  as of yesterday. 

And the best news of all is He may get to eat today!  He stooled yesterday ...FINALLY.  He has had a few procedures in order to help the process along. I think they are waiting to see if things will 'push' forward on their own.  But for the most part--- it looks like he may get a taste of Mommy's milk before the day is out.  It won't be much-- maybe a teaspoon.  He has to be able to tolerate it as well. 

Remember-- he's only been fed these 19 days of life through a Broviac IV-- 
It is touch and go. Slow and steady wins the race. 

Thank you all for the prayers. I ask that you please continue to pray for Easton when you think of him.

On another note.  It seems we may be experiencing Strep-throat as well, in our tightly knit little family. So that means visits to the hospital will be limited. Big Brother Weston went to the doctor this morning and that is the Dr.'s diagnosis for him.  I'm not feeling so well-- and Mommy is just beside herself, she can't go to the hospital until she knows for sure she is out of the woods and won't get Easton sick.

WE know the situation is in God's hands--- we are very hopeful.  We may ask for physical healing-- But it is God who determines the time and place.  He may have other plans for Easton and another purpose for the circumstances. We merely need to trust Him in all these things.


And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

God Bless you 
and 
Thanks for reading!

Bless your heart, you've got a lot on your plate right now don't you? I've been saying prayers for Easton but will double up on them. I'll also say one for the entire family.

Thanks for the update on Easton.

Blessings,

Jackie

Glad to hear this update. Hope everyone is feeling better soon. Sometimes it seems like everything happens at once - and you all have had your fair share of "all at once". Keeping you all in my thoughts.

I will keep you in my prayers that the strep is gone fast! My three grandchildren just had it, and somehow I didn't catch it!

Oh my. I pray you aren't all coming down with strep. That is so harsh, poor Weston, I pray for his speedy recovery too. Glad to hear Easton is doing so well - keeping my fingers crossed that he passes the stool test. Goodness, I hope you are getting some rest through all of this. Thanks for stopping by my blog and the nice comment. Hope things get back to normal for you and yours real soon. Cyber hugs to all of you!
