for a quick game! The boys played Mullan yesterday afternoon, and less than 2 minutes into the 3d quarter ended it with the 45 point mercy rule. 46-0 Knights. Way to go, boys!!

Jethro had therapy appts before the game. He is doing well. The therapists are very happy...we are seeing improvement in his physical development week to week...just as you would with a healthy baby. :-) We are so very thankful that God is not merely sustaining Jethro, but He is causing him to thrive.
Once again, thank you so much for your prayers. They are precious to us!

Mike and I have talked about the best way to let folks know what is going on with baby Jethro and his heart. There are options like Caring Bridge, which is set up for folks who are dealing with serious illnesses. However, we feel that it would be less stressful for me to just use this blog to update on the baby, and not have to learn a new system while dealing with a sick baby. I have added a "subscribe to" button for folks that want to know when the blog gets updated. ****ALSO. If you are on Facebook, Jethro has his own group, Jethro Storms Dole. I keep updates and prayer requests for Jethro there as well.****
I am a Christ-loving wife to my Beloved and the blessed homeschooling mother of 10 children, ages 21 to newborn. I'm now also a mother-in-law. :-) Our second to youngest blessing, Jethro was born with a congenital heart defect, so I am now what is known as a "heart mama".
