Jax update #2

I was so right.

Jax has slowly gotten worse since we've been home. I knew as soon as we walked out the hospital doors it would happen, does every time. Its like he knows doctors are around and he has to be good. We checked a blood gas today and its not to bad so we are still riding it out at home.

Don't think I'm a bad parent for keeping him home when he is so sick. There is a really high risk of me needing to call an ambulance for him if we stay home, but we know what to look for and we are watching him closely.

I still didn't sleep last night, because Jax didn't sleep. I am a walking zombie. Oh well, life goes on.

Hang in there Mommy...Praying for you both:(

I'm so sorry for the lack of sleep too...UGH, I feel so sorry for you!!!! Sending you some good MOJO THERE'S NO WAY you're a bad Momma, you're one of the BEST in the world!!!

Junior said...

Praying for you guys.
You are an awesome mom. With Junior we ride a lot out at home because it is so risky for him in the hospital with all those germs.
give Jaxson a hug for us.

This is Joyce. I'm right beside you in understanding all you're saying. Hoping for a few peaceful hours.

I've got no words of wisdom, no advice, for you are a well trained Momologist. Don't give a hoot about what anyone else thinks, except for the glowing comments you are getting about being a great mom. Very few have walked in your shoes and of course you are doing your best. I continue to pray for your family and hope you're able to get some rest soon.

Wow, I don't know what to say, except hang in there! Hopefully you can stay at home and he'll improve. Hugs to you both!

Hospitals are not a good place to be, even sometimes when you are really sick. There are so many other germs that you can catch, plus you never get any sleep!

I pray that you are able to sleep some tonight and that Jaxson starts to get better!!! Hang in there!

Pictures are coming soon!
