More pictures and GOOD NEWS!!

"In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name." (Psalm 33:21 NIV)

Some pictures from the weekend:

Baby girl in her bonnet. Back in Memphis for her eye exam. Vision is still not great but her doctor said it's nothing to worry about yet. We go back next month so we are praying everything will be ok.

Hanging out with daddy

Daddy must have said something naughty! Haha

Sweet girl likes to sleep anywhere but her bed!

Listening to grandmommy read

Sleepy girl

Mark and I continue to be in awe of the miracles God is performing in our babies' lives. We are learning every day to trust solely in Him and never doubt what He can do!

In saying that, do you notice anything different in the next 2 pictures?

That's right!!! Henry is OFF OF OXYGEN!!! Late Saturday night our doctor decided to just "try and see" if Henry could tolerate being off of oxygen. Mark and I, of coarse, were nervous wrecks, but he did great! In fact, they checked his blood gases on Sunday, and they were better than they have ever been! How great is our God!!! This is HUGE for Henry. He is still very weak and his lungs are no where near what they should be, but he is continuing to improve and he continues to DEFY all the odds! Henry is the toughest little fighter and we are so proud of him. There is still the possibility that he may have to go back on oxygen permanently, but we are praying he can stay off.

We are still praying that our little man can come home soon! I will update the blog the second I know something. Right now, Mark and I are off to be trained on how to operate the machines that Henry will be on once he is home. This next year is going to be a challenge, but we are confident God will see us through. As always, we are grateful for your prayers.

Praise God for His great and mighty works! Just another step in the miracle also known as "Henry and Harper" :o)

Dearest B. J. and Mark,

I have JUST NOW figured out how to leave you a message. DUH!!! However, I have been reading your blog and hearing from all four of you through others. What a wonderful thrill to see that you are all at home! Don't even think about worrying that you are not responding to messages. Everyone understands that you want to spend all your time with the babies, and I imagine that there is very little time left over.

I have some gifts for the twins, and I will figure out some way to get them to you. My only advice to you is to try and rest whenever you have a chance, and let other things go. You MUST remain healthy and energetic.

Much love,

Rosemary Fisher
