Gaining weight

Jameson has gained 12 oz. in 3 weeks. We are very encouraged by this weight gain. He is not crazy about eating, but he continues to amaze us when he eats 1 or 2 extra oz. Really that is all we need...a couple of extra oz. a day. We just need Jameson to increase his intake. We are definitely taking baby steps, but we will take anything we can. Jameson should be taking in about 30 to 32 oz. a day and he will eat on a good day 24 to 26 oz. Please continue to pray for Jameson to increase his caloric intake and also enjoy eating cereal.

Jameson is a very happy baby. He smiles and sits up(with assistance). Nicholas and Zachary love him bunches. Jameson will open his mouth to kiss the boys all of the time. They will walk past Jameson and he will open his mouth for them to give him a kiss. His eyes light up when he sees his brothers....there is nothing like a smile and kiss from Jameson.

I am truly learning to be content in all circumstances. Contentment is knowing that everything that life brings my way come through the hands of the Almighty God. I know that when Jameson has a day when his breathing is bad...God knows and His hand has allowed it. I know that when there are more blisters than good skin....God knows and His hand has allowed it. NOT one thing that happens goes unseen by a Mighty God. What a confidence I can have going through life with a child with a skin disease...God knows and His hand has allowed it.

We love you all! Please continue to pray for NO MORE BLISTERS and Jameson's growth. Thank you Jesus for all of those who pray for us. We WILL give you the glory for GREAT things You have done!

Oh my what an action packed last couple of days. On Tuesday night, we had to call 911. Jameson has had some upper respiratory problems within the last 4 or 5 weeks. Todd and I have been dressed and ready to go, 3 times in the past month, to take Jameson to the hospital. Jameson's breathing would get better and we would thank Jesus because we did not have to go to the hospital. Well...on Tuesday his breathing never got better only worse. He was really struggling to breath. My parents had left and Todd and I had no other choice but to call 911. I stayed home with the boys and Todd went to the hospital with Jameson. Jameson received a breathing treatment for 2 hours and a steroid before he had any relief. Jameson was admitted and stayed overnight. We were released around 5 o'clock Wednesday afternoon. We were very thankful that Jameson recovered so quickly and that we had AMAZING doctors. We are always encouraged going into the hospital....God shows us that He always goes before us. Our worries are great but our GOD is GREATER!!

We have told you guys about our concerns with Jameson's eating. We now are working with a nutritionist. She is wonderful. Her commitment to helping us and Jameson is just another way God is showing us that He so in control of our situation. We pray that Jameson will grow and we will avoid a feeding tube. Our worries are great but our GOD is GREATER!!!!

Just an update about our friends. Gracyn is now alert and awaiting a new heart. She did not have a virus that attacked her heart. She was born with a genetically bad heart. The doctors said that this condition typically takes children before the age of 5 years old. Gracyn is 9 and has had no complications until now. Please pray for the family that will loose their child to give Graycn a heart. Also, pray that she will continue to improve and be healthy when a heart comes available.

We love you all!
