But people have been asking about Rachel so I'll give a brief update. I keep hearing that people are checking this blog every day! Wow. (I like to bug Dave about how many 'followers' Rachel has gained in her short life compared to his blog followers...he he) Rachel sure is loved by many. Thank-you for being so interested in our journey. She's still doing the same as far as we can see. She does seem to be eating better these days. (still every 2 hours or so though). She seems fairly happy too. She is very responsive to us and it seems like she is trying to talk.
Dave's brother Tim came to visit us for a few days! This was his first time to meet Rachel and we were really glad to have him here. Dave and Tim took the two older kids to Heart Creek Trail for most of a day. I got some rest at home with Rachel.
We are expecting to see both our parents in the next while too! Next Tuesday we are back at the Hospice (maybe for a week) and we are really looking forward to getting some sleep again. Please pray for David as he has returned to work. We believe that God is sustaining us. This time of sickness and exhaustion too shall pass.
