An announcement


It has been a great while since I have posted. Life has been busy for us for the last few months. Our daughter, Nora, had a very difficult pregnancy which resulted in home bed rest (briefly), hospital bed rest (for about a week), and then the early delivery of her baby seven weeks early.

Little Oliver James was born on January 27 and has been in the NICU since then. He is a strong little boy and has made significant progress in the two weeks since his birth. He is eating well and is off all tubes, etc. At the moment he has just one monitor. His mother was allowed to begin rooming in with him just yesterday and if he continues to do well he may come home very soon.

We are extremely grateful for answered prayer on his behalf and on behalf of our daughter, Nora. People have been very kind in providing food, gifts, and child care for his big sisters. The girls have not been allowed to meet him yet.

Here are two of my favorite pictures:

The first is to give a bit of perspective. He is next to a 20 oz. soda bottle.

Here he is without any tubes and with his eyes open.

We are praising the Lord for our seventh little grandchild.
