Thursday, December 23rd

Jackson is very close to back to where he was before the surgery.  He is on the same oxygen machine he was on before.  He is back up to his full feeds, with everything put in other than his diuretics.  The doctors said that unless he shows that he needs it again, there is no reason to give it to him.  The original use was to get excess fluids out of his lungs.  But he is not showing any signs of fluids on the lungs.  He is back in his regular crib bed, rather than in the heated surgery table.

Father Jonathan made a special trip up to the NICU to give Jackson a personal blessing.  It was really great of him to make some time in his schedule especially since Christmas is one of his busiest times.

Other than all of this, Jackson was sleeping soundly awaiting Santa's arrival in the NICU tomorrow.  Since these babies need special care Santa gives them special treatment and comes early for them.
