HAPPY 16 MONTH BIRTHDAY!!!!


Witt is 16 months old today!!!
He is a big boy!

Today's birthday wish(actually prayer!) is that Witt's lungs will improve. The chest x-ray looked a little worse today and his CO2 is staying in the 70's. It had been in the 50's...the lower the better! What is a little baffling to us is that he seems to be breathing easier. It's not labored like it has been at times. He definitely has lots of congestion that has to be suctioned quite often!!
I remember when I used to celebrate not just each week but everyday of Witt's life as a precious gift from God. I confess that I have somewhat lost that mindset. Please, Lord, keep me so positioned at Your throne that I celebrate every day that You give not just Witt but me and that each day gives You more glory!

Oh, Sweet Boy, Happy, HAPPY 16 months!!! Will it be snowy celebration here in Houston?!? Hope so!

And, Karen...you're exactly right! At low times I've caught myself wishing it was "next week" or even sometimes "next month"...how dare I wish away a day...each DAY is a precious gift from God!!! Thank you for reminding me!
