In so many ways it seems like forever ago that you came into our lives. I can scarcely remember days before your smile. It is hard to remember life before your sunshine brightened our world. It is difficult to recall our family without your precious name on the family tree. I am SO thankful for each of the past 365 days we have spent loving you. God has blessed our family abundantly, and at the top of that list of blessings is you, WITT HARRIS LUPHER! Happy Birthday little buddy.
I LOVE YOU,

Witt continues to do well! Melanie is in the process of starting his physical and occupational therapy again. They are trying to work out a scenario where Witt doesn't have to go the the hospital once a week(and be exposed to everything there) but keep his two wonderful therapists, Stephanie and Jennifer. Please pray that the insurance issues get worked out for that to happen.
Witt is almost a year...unbelievable! Sometimes I go back and read from the first couple of weeks of Witt's life. I am in awe of our God! I am in awe because no matter what was happening He was there. He was undoubtedly there in the celebrations but most definitely there through the excruciating pain. Maybe that's one of the most valuable truths I have learned...He is with us....Emmanuel... but He is Emmanuel for all times! He is with us in the mountain tops but more importantly He is there in the valleys...the valleys of pain and suffering. Its why I can live today and look to tomorrow and be told not to worry. He is with me, He is with Melanie, He is with Austan, He is with Witt for all our todays and whatever our tomorrows hold!
A good morning talk from Witt!

Witt is still off oxygen and showing no signs of needing it. Please pray that God will be a Shield about him as more and more people come down with the flu!! Witt has a doctors appointment soon at Texas Children's. They are not allowing any child under 12 to visit the hospital because of the swine flu. Even though Melanie and Austan don't take Witt out, I am sure we are all exposed to it in some way. I wished I had bought some stock in Purell!!! Now that Witt is off oxygen it is easier to play with him. Yesterday Mel was rolling him up and down the hallway in his stroller. I tried to capture the laughter(of both!) but was too slow. Melanie did however video Austan and Witt playing!
Thank you to each of you...I pray today that God be glorified as He pours out His blessings in your lives!!!!~Karen

A very thoughtful blogger, Brittney, came up with such a special way for blog readers to be a part of celebrating Witt's upcoming 1st birthday (that is just 16 days away)! And thanks to the generosity and talent of Ashley Allen, this gift is already underway.
As always, we are blown away by all the generosity and love that you continually pour out on Witt and our family. Your prayers are the best gift we could ever receive, so we truly hope you don't feel any pressure to participate in this extra gift. However, if you do want to be a part of this wonderful blessing you can click on the picture below for more information!
