Two and a half years

Today we celebrate Karis’ half birthday!  Our sweet girl is going strong at two and a half years old!  Thank you for devotion to pray for Karis.  We recognize that we are completely dependent upon the Lord for every breath that Karis (and ALL of us) takes. As always, we would be honored if you […]

Pneumonia Update

Hi friends, We are still in the hospital with Karis.  The balance between treatment and rest for Karis is a fine line.  She needs frequent treatment (chest percussion therapy, cough assist, nebulizer treatment, and IPV) but it’s fatiguing her so much that she doesn’t have the strength to cough.  If she doesn’t cough for us, this […]
