Progress

Look who has eyeballs today!!



Jaxson was so much more alert today, I was amazed. Its the first time I've seen his eyeballs in 4 days! They still didn't touch his vent settings today, I guess his x-ray from this morning wasn't pretty. Oh those poor lungs of his! 4 years of damage really takes its toll! But at least he's more awake today, thats progress! Not really much more to report.

Again, thanks for all your prayers.

That the best news you could have given, don't need much more right now. So so wonderful to see his eyes open.
Keep praying for further improvement...slow and steady right?

Oh Lacey, I'm glad that he looks a little better today. What are his settings at? Ben's settings are the highest they've ever been. 9peep and 16 pressure support. Keep fighting!!

Oh Jaxson, as Carter says...Keep on Keepin' on!!

Emily said...

Oh... he looks so much better already! I sure hope he kicks this soon. I've been thinking about him non-stop!

I can only imagine what a relief it was to see your baby's eyes again. I felt like I lost Morgan for awhile there and it was just because she wasn't talking anymore. He has such the battle wounds on his little hands and arms. I can't wait for him to get all better so you can get out of there and on to the Happiest Place on Earth. Prayers from our family!

Alison said...

Oh its so good to see him with his eyes open. I will keep praying for you all and particularly for Jaxson's progress.

Kele said...

Goodness he looks soooo much better. I am glad they are being aggressive in wean efforts, but balancing it with time to rest, I know how hard it is for you... believe me!
I did get your email address, but felt hesitant to email about something that you seemed distressed about while you have so much on your plate. But if you ever do want the skinny on that topic and what I feel it truly means from the medical field stand point, just let me know.
I am praying for Jax, I know he will, once again, get through this.
The picture of his arm makes me want to cry, sweet baby!

What a thrill to see him wide awake like that! Lacey, you and your family are just as tough as Jaxson is to be fighting this fight for 4 years right along with him. As always, praying for your whole family.

Jaxson, I am so relieved to see your big peepers open! That surely warmed your mommy's heart. :)

Lacey, I hope he continues to do well. Sorry his xray looks bad, but I'm glad they are going slow and not pushing him. I hope he recovers soon!
