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!

Love,
Melisa

Hey Setsma's,
Every time I read this blog it is a testimony of what an AWESOME GOD we serve.I am so happy that Jameson is gaining weight and doing better with eating. I pray for less and less blistering. I told your dad this morning "just wait, one day he will be healed by an Almighty GOD." What an awesome day that will be!! I pray daily for you, Melisa for renewed strenght to get through each day a little easier..Our church is still looking forward for the day they get to meet THE SETSMAS.
Love you,
Susan

I am the grandmother of Ella Murray who was born with EB 19 months ago. I am also friend of Brandi and David Lorenz. Like you, our family has been on quite a journey, and can testify to God's continuing grace. I was so happy to see a picture of Jameson. I have prayed for him and his family since his birth. Those big blue eyes tell the whole story of faith and hope.
