Friday Oct 8th - Answered Prayers!

Guess what we found out?? Jackson's PDA has closed up!!! The medication worked!! This means he should not have to have surgery. There is a slight chance it could reopen, but that really drops once he is over 14 days old (so 5 days away).

His lungs have really cleared up and are looking much better.

And his eyes are now open!

He has gained weight too! At one point he had dropped to about 1lb 2 oz and now he is up to 1lb 7oz, which is 2oz over his birth weight. He is getting a little breast milk and tolerating it well. Hopefully they will start increasing the amount of breast milk he receives soon.

Our only concern right now is the infection, which is being treated with antibiotics. They will continue to monitor and treat.

Overall today was a good day.

Thank you all for your prayers, they are working for sure!!
