Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow

Baby Jackson had a few more bumps along the way, but now he is home! Of course with the ice storm I was without internet for a little over a week and then of course it took me a week to get our house back to normal and get rested up. More on the ice storm later. Jackson continued to be on the antibiotics and they begin teaching Baby Jackson how to eat again. At first he was a little reluctant to the idea, but was warming up to it slowly. After a few days Scott and Christina discussed being transported back to a hospital closer to home while Jackson learned to eat because Children's did not have a room available for them to be with him 24 hours a day, so he had to continue to stay in NICU which they knew he no longer needed. So he was transported by ambulance back to Mercy where he was born. Needless to say Scott and Christina finally felt like they got to be a mommy and daddy! They had him to themselves in their room. Of course we couldn't stay away and we were up at the hospital the day they arrived! We had waited a long time to hold that cutie pie and see him up close without lots of tubes and monitors hooked up to him! Well after only a few nights in the hospital at Mercy, Jackson was eating with no problems, so he was released to go home! What a blessing! The good news is that this whole time we have been praying for Baby Jackson and Baby Harper which were by coincidence were born on the same day and Praise God from whom all Blessings Flow.....they both got to go home on the same day!
This is Jeremy asking Ian if he wanted another baby! Ian of course says yes and daddy says he is CRAZY!
