Update on the Boys!

I wanted to share with those of you who are praying for our boys and let you know how they are doing today.

Well as you know being sick is no fun. Especially for little ones. But they seem to be handling it much better then I thought. They are such little troopers.

Well about Ethan:
He is starting to get his energy back. He has not wanted to eat very much for the past week and a half so he has last about 4 pounds, which is a lot for a little to lose. I am keeping him full of liquids and yesterday he started eating more then just 1 meal for us again. So I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for him. The doctor did say this will take about 3-4 weeks to completely get over. So today it is about the same and I think it will stay this way for the next couple of days.
He did start to ask for his morning snack today and that is a good sign!

He is doing well. He is still wheezing and very clingy. We are still doing the breathing treatments with the nebulizer (which he hates doing) but you can hear a difference afterwards so we are going to keep doing it until we run out of the medicine...Which will probably be another week.
He has started to pick back up with eating his baby food. He still eats only a couple of bites and then is done but it is much better then not wanting it at all. He has lost about 1 1/2 pounds now. He weighs right at 13 pounds 15 ounces.
He is a pretty little fellow with all his clothes off but I know he will pick back up soon.
He is starting to get some of his energy back and has enjoyed playing on the floor with his brother for short spurts. He was the sickest of the two so he will take a little longer to heal.
Since he has RSV I am still monitoring his breathing and praying that his lungs, and bronchial tubes heal up nicely.

It is hard to watch your kids be sick but it is even harder to know that they will have 2-3 days were they feel the same and don't seem to be getting better. So thank you for all your prayers!

Gus started to have a stomach bug last Thursday and still seems to not be better... As well as this weekend we both woke up with a head cold. So I am praying it runs it coarse quickly so we can be back to normal again.
We are also in the middle of packing to get ready to head back to Jacksonville this weekend so please continue to pray for the move and that it goes well.
As our one friend said: When it rains it pours! That is how I feel--like everything is just hitting us at once. But I know it is only for a short time and we will all be back up on our feet and running again soon!

Thank you so much!
We don't know what we would do without all the prayers and encouragement from our friends and family.

"You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being."
