Home

It's where the heart is and where the Jacksons are today!!!!!

We were given the go-ahead to leave Packard Children's Hospital yesterday and braved the long drive home in pouring rain. Mr. Man did great on the ride home and had the BIGGEST smile on his face when we walked in the front door. I think he must have taken all his toys out in the first ten minutes...just to touch them...remind himself that they truly exist...let them know he hadn't forgotten about them. It was too cute!

Noah is doing pretty well today. He still refuses to swallow any of his saliva and is a walking waterfall! We have gone through all the bibs I could find as well as two shirts. Hopefully he will learn to swallow again and the next four weeks won't be quite so moist.

Mr. Stinkpot also continues to vomit. UGH!!!!! We have decreased the amount of food he is given and are thinning it out quite a bit. We need to make sure he doesn't get dehydrated and that his body has enough energy to continue healing. He is getting medications every three hours around the clock to prevent infection, manage his pain, and hopefully, help settle his stomach.

We have so many things to be thankful for this year...way to many to count...but we are most thankful for our amazing family and friends who love and support us and our awesome God whose worth is beyond measure.

  1. Turkey and stuffing will never taste SO good! It's good to know that you are all home, healing, and (hopefully) resting. Welcome home!

    P.S. I have a few bibs Colin can give if you need/want more (he seems to like taking them off more than wearing them). Just let me know...

  3. I just wish for an easy day for ya'll, ya know. No new trials, just a day where nothing happens. Everything stays down, everyone feels good and gets enough rest and can just be. That's what I wish for you all.
