Saturday the 9th

Fighting the Infections -

Jackson getting a chest X-ray
Overall, Jackson's day was rather calm.  He has an infection that is requiring antibiotics, which leaves him vulnerable to yeast infections.  He is fighting both right now, and will be on antibiotics for a total of 10 days.  He started them 2 days ago, and so he has another 8 to go.  After all the blood infection has been cleared up they will have to do a spinal tap to make sure the infection didn't make it into his spinal fluid.

Jackson will be receiving more milk increasing from 4 times a day to 8 times.  They will continue to increase the amount he gets steadily.  His eyes are open and he looks around a little which is really nice to see.  He's been much less active due to the doctors giving him a little more sedative to make sure he stays calm and works on fighting the infections, breathing, and growing.

On a lighter note, Jackson got his first piece of mail yesterday.  We had him added to our health plan and they sent us the new cards.  However, they changed Jackson as the plan holder and deleted Greg off.  So because of that, the mail came in Jackson's name, rather than Greg's.  Greg will have to wait until Monday to clear this up, and get his name back on the card, and the owner of the plan.


  1. Look at those pics! He's a champ!

  2. Good morning Jackson! You are growing so big and strong. Kisses and hugs for you and your mommy & daddy!
