And you thought Jack was tired.......




Just to clarify, I want you all to know that Sarah is the one who needs the most sleep around here. Working hard to assure Jack receives good nutrition, Sarah is very dedicated despite the odd hours and the uncertainty of his feedings. We are excited that he is back on the milk, and so far so good. Jack has come a long way in the last 3 weeks yet still has unimproved roads ahead, but we are so thankful that the Lord has allowed him to come this far. Today he is officially off all of his heart medications. His next big hurdle is for his kidneys to function without the help of medication, and to begin to breathe more and more on his own. I thought I'd make sure you all knew that Jack isn't the only one who can sleep despite the uncomfortable circumstances. We have to be good sports about whose turn it is to sit in the rocking chair. Otherwise things are going as good as can be expected at this point. We are just praying that he avoids infection and that the systems in his body can recover from all of the medication he has been on. Your comments have been so rejuvenating to read and we feel blessed to have so many who care with such sincerity.

Sarah and Darrin, I just want you to know that all 3 of you are in our thoughts and prayers. We think of you all the time and if there is anything you need please let us know. Jack is beautiful and I know he is strong and will make it through this. Congratulations on Jack finally being here.

I have a feeling with the hours you two put in that that Darren picture might also occur at Westminster too? So happy he is doing better everyday!

We are glad to hear that things are still going good! Let us know if there is anything we can do! He looks like he is getting bigger? How much does he weigh now? He looks so cute. Does he look more like Darren or Sarah? We are still praying for you all.
