Yesterday Witt seemed to be doing much better. There was even talk of going home by Sunday but that's changed for now. He wasn't able to tolerate any of his formula and has had to go back to straight pedialyte. Mel even asked for the pedialyte to be increased slightly because Witt appeared to be getting dehydrated. We are not sure exactly what is going on. It might be that Witt just needs more time and the the formula added in more slowly than half and half. The doctor has ordered a test to check the bacteria in Witt's stomach. They honestly don't expect that to show anything but need to rule somethings out. Melanie has changed his clothes and bed several times this morning. At least we don't have to wash the bedding!!
Yesterday it was obvious that Witt felt better!

All finished with his bath!!
Although the reason Witt is in the hospital does not appear to be serious it's always hard. It's harder for Melanie to take care of Witt here and everyone is definitely a little sleep deprived. Please pray that Melanie and Austan are able to get some rest. Please pray that Witt gets back on the path of healing and headed home!!! Please pray that through all this we seek and accept God's perfect timing to His glory!!!

Oh, I am so sorry to see this. I hope you get to go home soon. I love the post-bath picture. I think my girl and Witt could be siblings. :)

Love his gorgeous smile he gives you when you are talking to him! And those huge blue eyes---those will certainly melt your heart!

We have Witt and all of you in our hearts and our prayers. We know God is right there with you.

Love you all so much,
Gayle and Bobby
