In our own little neck of the woods, Simon is back on his feet. His lungs, ears, and eyes were clear at the doctor's yesterday, and his oxygen levels were back up to 99. Jamie and Clare only got a touch of the sniffles, as did Shawn and I.

In my larger WS-community, however, life is not as good. It makes me feel helpless that, many times, all I can do is tell someone I am praying for them. I am such a do-er kind of person - making meals, watching kids, anything to make someone's life a little easier in the practical sense when faced with such hardships. I cannot take away people's worries or stress or fear, but I can make sure they don't have to be concerned about getting dinner on the table. However, being far away from the majority of our WS-blogging mommies, I wish I could do more. All I can say is that my prayers are serious. We have been saying the rosary as a family every night this Lent, and there have been many special intentions for our WS-friends out there. We continue to keep you in prayer.

Update - Ava is home now and slowly on the mend. Thank you to all my family and friends who keep our friends with Williams syndrome in their thoughts and prayers as well.

I'm so happy that Simon is better.

Thank you for your prayers. In Ava's case they seem to be working. She is finally showing some signs of improvement.

I, too, am praying hard for these poor babies. I don't know what else to do:(

I feel the same way. It was really, really hard for me to close my eyes and try to sleep last night.
