The Thinker-

I thought I'd post another update on Easton ; he is our littlest and latest GRAND!
He is two weeks old today.  
He still isn't able to eat. 
We are waiting on him to 'stool'.  I told you before that he was born with Gastroschesis  that is an anomaly pertaining to the bowel being formed outside his body cavity.  

So far he is coming along as normal as can be expected for this ABNORMAL SITUATION. 

Today he had two dye tests to see that his bowel is able to pass and make sure that there are no obstructions. 

We were told today  that this is the case-- no obstructions. We are still waiting on his bowel to 'wake-up' and work on it's own. 

Specifically- we are praying for his bowel to work. 
After that happens, we're praying that he will have the desire to suck and eat on his own.  These 'belly babies' have a tendency to forget to eat. 

We ask that you join us in prayer on these two issues regarding Easton's health. 
We ask that you also Praise God for what He is doing-- because we are merely human and cannot fathom the work he doing;Just know it is for His glory and only trust Him!

Isn't he a cutie?  I wonder what he is thinking about?  14 days old and already resembles a deep thinker! 

 LORD, You have searched me and known me.
  You know my sitting down and my rising up;
         You understand my thought afar off.
 You comprehend my path and my lying down,
         And are acquainted with all my ways.
  For there is not a word on my tongue,
         But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.
  You have hedged me behind and before,
         And laid Your hand upon me.
  Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
         It is high, I cannot attain it.  Psalm 139:1-6 

God Bless you 
thank you for reading.

I've been saying daily prayers for little Easton. I'll continue with them, even step them up a bit. He is so sweet, love the picture of him deep in thought.

Have a good weekend and try to stay cool.

Oh I am so glad to get an update on your newest grandbaby. I will keep Easton and your family in my thoughts and prayers. How lucky he is to have such a wonderful family and how lucky you all are to have such a blessing as him. Thinker, indeed. He will have much to say in the coming years, I think.
