- Grady Jeremiah is doing well.  He is still gaining weight and is now up to 2 pounds, 13 ounces!  Thanks for praying for him in this area.  He keeps growing!  He also remains quite active.  Last night he somehow wiggled his way down to the bottom end of his isolette. 

However, Julia and I only saw him for a few minutes today.  Last night, I (Grady) started feeling chills but without fever.  Julia also has been feeling sluggish.  After a good night's rest, we thought we were better this morning so we went to the hospital.  Within a few minutes, I had chills and a cold sweat again and Julia was also feeling sluggish.  To err on the side of caution, we did not touch Grady Jeremiah and decided to spend the day back at Ronald McDonald House just resting.  Thankfully the grandparents were more than willing to sit with him and talk with him in our absence! 

Julia and I are feeling better tonight.  She feels well except for being tired.  I'm feeling back to normal and energetic, but still a bit chilled.  It seems that my body temperature has dropped!  That happened once before as a reaction to something I ate.  We are hoping it is nothing more than just that or fatigue. 
  • Please pray that we will not have any type of viral or bacterial sickness causing our symptoms. 
  • Please pray that we both will be completely well tomorrow and able to spend the day with our son. 
  • Please pray that Grady Jeremiah will stay healthy and free from any sickness or infection.  Premature babies have very little immunity and any sickness sets them back a lot.
Thanks for praying!  We miss being with our son today and are ready to get back with him soon!
