Healing Hearts

A few minutes and one month ago, we watched as our little boy took his last breath on Earth and joined our Lord in Heaven.  Our hearts are broken, yet so happy for Seton and his new adventure!  We miss our boy and our lives are forever changed because of him. We thank the Lord for every minute that He let us spend with Seton.  Everyday has its struggles, Tuesdays are especially hard, and every night feels empty without going through Seton’s bedtime routine.  I ask God to fill this emptiness in my heart, to relieve the pain and dry the tears. We are pressing into Him, clinging to each other and trying to live life daily. Our healing has started, but is far from complete. 

As 2013 is starting we are looking forward to the new blessings God has in store for us. We would like to thank each and every one of you for all your prayers for Seton and us, as we walk the road God has planned for us.  I am not sure if we will continue this blog, start a new one or leave the blog world… but I will leave you with this.

Psalm 139:13 – 18
13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
    and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
    Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
    as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in Your book.
Every moment was laid out
    before a single day had passed.
17 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
    They cannot be numbered!
18 I can’t even count them;
    they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
    you are still with me!

For those we haven't had a chance to communicate with yet, Seton passed on to his eternal life last night around 9:16 PM.  Our hearts are very heavy right now, but our spirits are so happy for him.  He made us forever proud, and we know he has no more struggles and has won the prize.  We will post an update in the near future when we're able to get some time, but for now - God is good.


I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. - 2 Timothy 4:7

Keep Praying

We took Seton off the bipap machine, waiting for God to take him around 2:20am.

Little did we know Seton and God are not done yet. His stats have improved...he
is still struggling dont get me wrong, we are in no way out of the woods, but
So here we sit with our boy, he has been talking (babbling) to us all, cries a little. Loved it when his daddy brushed his and fixed his hair, drew some kaleidoscope pictures with mommy. Sat in everyone's lap tonight. Gave fist bumps or knuckles (knuckle chucks if your his Grammy)  :-)
 He lays here in bed beside daddy taking a nap...with just an oxygen mask on, breathing like he does at home most nights.

Dear Father,  we love you and thank you for every minute you have given us with our sweet, Seton Blaine Oliver. He is in your hands and you will do your will, like we have asked from the beginning, almost 2 years ago when we found out there was possibly a problem. He is your child and you love him far more than we do. Comfort Seton and bring him peace, and healing on Earth or in Heaven with you. I ask these things in Jesus Name, Amen.

Seton is still hanging on, being the little fighter we all knew he is! 👊 I always knew his hands were in fists for a reason! Ready to fight!

Prayers Needed

Just to give everyone a quick update...
Seton started throwing up blood Sunday morning, so we headed to the ER. We started feeling better about all that he has been going thru the past few weeks, he has been extremely fussy and in pain but we did not know why. Once in the ER they found out that he probably had a stomach ulcer, so they admitted us to PICU. Once in the PICU Seton started struggling to breathe so we got to have the end of life discussion with Dr.Kim our new in hospital doctor...because DrH no longer has hospital privileges, which is another story. In order to get his oxygen saturation level back up they had to turn his oxygen up to 8 LPM @ 100% which is extremely high, with breathing treatments every 2 hours and a CPT vest for 15 min with every breathing Today they are pulling lots of blood to test everything again and add some tests also (coagulation, phenobarbital, CBC, etc). The chest X-ray showed some pnuemonia in his lungs and his CO2 levels are extremely high. Seton is now on a bi pap machine to help pull the CO2 out of his blood. Right now we are still letting his stomach contents drain to get all the blood out, to help comfort him. That is our main goal right now, COMFORT!
He is a little fighter and is still hanging in there. We are standing on Psalms 18 for him. God is his strength and helping him hang in there. He is wrapped in God's Arms. I will post an update as often as I can.
Please pray for comfort, CO2 levels to decrease, blood pH normalize, and wisdom over the Hospital staff and us as we make future decisions for our little WARRIOR!
