Dusting off this blog

Man its been a long time, I have a lot of catching up to do! I hope everything has been well with all of our friends.
I'm loving being back home with my boys. Auntie Boo surprised us and brought Jax to the airport, knowing he was the first thing we would want to see! Man I missed my little man and his antics, which he has been pulling full force since we've been home. Last week a tummy bug made its way around the house. It was a quick one, a twelve hour bug, but Jax has been sick since. He is pale and has his dry lips. He is still gagging and wretching, which means no food is allowed in the tummy. We've been using the J port for the last week, and letting his g port vent into a diaper. He's showing no signs of getting better, as he continues to wretch, so nothing is going into that tummy anytime soon. He is not tolerating being on the vent either. Pulmo thinks its just upsetting his tummy having all that air shoved in. I hope thats all it is. He sleeps for about an hour or two, then wakes up thrashing and fussing. As soon as you take the vent off, he goes back to sleep. But he wakes multiple times during the night, because without the vent he doesn't breathe like he's supposed to. His sats have been lower also from so much time off the vent. I'm really hoping he starts to turn around soon, and this doesn't end up being a big mess!

Oh I missed my little naughty boy!


My sister left Wednesday, so we took the kids to the park one last time. I wanted to play with my nieces before they went home, since we didn't really get to spend time with them. The boys had a blast having their cousins around for so long though. Since they live in Oklahoma, we don't see them much.
Thank you so much to my sister for taking my place while we were gone!

Welcome Home! Hopefully Jax will start feeling better soon!

Denise said...

Gosh...it just makes me realize all the more how hard it must have been for you to be away from Jax and constantly worrying about him. And what a true Saint your friend is for taking on the responsibility of him while you were gone....I don't think that I could have been that good of a friend :) And your sister having all the rest of the kids too....again, don't know that I could do it :)
