Lynette's update at 11:50 am (pm in Thailand):

I am getting ready to crawl into bed but just wanted to leave a quick update from the day.
Olive still had bowel sounds this morning, and another stool so the doctor decided to start giving her colostrum (1 cc four times/day). So far she is digesting it and having no residual before each feeding. Her heart rate and blood oxygen levels stayed in the normal range and she was only on about 30-35% oxygen.
We are going to bed tonight with grateful hearts. Thank-you for all of your prayers, and so many words of encouragement.
Tonight one of my Thai friends who came to visit from Chiang Mai (Ichaya) is staying at the hospital with Olive for the night shift. Yet another thing to be thankful for.
Love to all of you!!!!


Please continue to pray. Pray for healing, especially for Olive's little brain. She has a brain ultrasound scheduled on Monday to take another look. I'm so thankful to hear the good news about her ability to digest colostrum! Pray for rest for Rusty, Lynette and my parents. Pray for wisdom as each day they may be faced with making difficult medical decisions. What a heavy weight to bear.
