Jackson Update

Well, I have not written anything about Jackson lately, but there is much to tell. Since my last post about him (when his new heart stopped beating) there have been many ups and downs. Jackson got a second new heart three days after the first transplant stopped working. The infection that caused the failure stuck around though and soon his kidneys were not functioning and his lungs were too weak to support him. Blood clots were causing some limbs to shrivel. He has been on dialysis, but was taken off on Friday because his kidneys were functioning at a safe level. This was great news. Sadly, today we have been told that they are taking Jackson off of life support tomorrow...and not because he is doing well. If, miraculously, he lives, he will loose his right arm to the elbow and both feet. This is the best case scenario.

As heartbroken as we are, we have all learned that Jackson is quite a fighter. And the Lord has heard many prayers, but it may be time to let Jax go. I will keep you updated on what happens after tomorrow.

I wouldn't want to be in that situation with any baby of mine...that said, I will send out a prayer for Jackson and his parents...with angels like Jackson, the ones who truly suffer are those left behind...keep us updated please...thanks honey.
