Monday, January 31st

Last night Jackson was having low oxygen saturation.  They could not get it to go up with a little prying, so they put him back on oxygen.  He was not low enough for it to be life threatening, just not preferred.  They went ahead and did a chest X-ray.  The doctors were surprised at how good Jackson's lungs looked.  So, that was not the issue which is actually great news.  However that being said, we are not sure exactly what is causing it.  The current theory is that it has something to do with his poor feedings skills which causes slight fluid in the lungs.  He will be having another swallow study in the morning to look for milk particles that may find their way into the lungs.  Jackson was obviously upset and fussy from the ordeal, but would settle down and get happy when mom and dad held him.

Exhausted after one heck of a day
