With picture attached this time! Sorry.
Friends and family – thank you all so, so much for all of your thoughtful texts, emails, prayers, Facebook notes, etc. We love all of it! I felt compelled to send an update in light of the tone of my last email, so here you go.
Oakes had what we would probably call just an “okay” week. His lung is still collapsed in spite of a couple of procedures to help it re-inflate. It is frustrating all of us and simply does not seem fair. However, we’re confident that Oakes is fighting as hard as ever and will come up with “something” in the next few days. If you want more details on the last few days, please visit our blog where Becky has kept everyone current – www.babyortyl.blogspot.com. In the meantime, I’ve attached the most precious picture ever of my children. Every time I see it, I just lose it. It’s the most adorable picture that I will cherish forever.
Much love and gratitude,
Greg, Becky, Isla P. & Mighty Oakes
