Sweet Precious Jackson is doing so GOOD!!!

Upon arriving at Children's they discovered that one of Jackson's tubes that was in his belly button had attached to the wall of his liver. This plugged off Jackson's liver and it filled with the lipids they were giving him for nutrition and they overflowed into his abdomen. This is what caused his belly to bloat up and get so big so fast and also why he had so much bile in his stomach. Since arriving at Children's on Thursday his belly has already gone down and they immediately ruled out 2 life threatening diseases. God is so good and prayers are being answered everyday. This morning they removed the oxygen out of Jackson's nose!!! His lungs look good and the pneumonia has healed! For the first time since he was born they got to put a real outfit on Jackson. They want him to be on the antibiotics they are giving him for 10 consecutive days, so he still has at least a week left at Children's but he has already made so much progress.

Psalm 4:3 Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call to him.

Praise God he heard our calls upon him. Jackson is looking better, acting better, and feeling better. There is actual talk now of him getting to come home. Thank you for your continued prayers. The picture above was taken this morning. You can see in all their faces love, happiness, relief, and joy!
