On The Road Again

So...if you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

New York City?




Well...if you were Noah, you would choose this place...
Doesn't it just look amazing?!? They have lovely accommodations, excellent room service, gorgeous views, and great entertainment. Where, you might ask, is this amazing resort? This awesome destination? This relaxing retreat?

Why it's the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford...of course. And if you were Noah, this would be your third visit in the past four months. One would think he truly LOVES this place.

Mr. Man is just truckin' his way to Packard.
We got the news late tonight that our surgery time, which we thought was six a.m. which meant a three a.m. departure time, was actually nine a.m. which means a respectable departure time of five a.m.

Our MOST FANTASTIC Otolaryngologist will remove the stent {you remember that famous stent}, take a look around, and remove any scar tissue.

We should get a good picture as to what Noah's future looks like. How his trachea is healing up? How are his vocal chords looking? Functioning? Is his epiglottis functioning? So many questions we have...they will not all be answered...but it will be a start.

Please pray for Noah and his surgical team tomorrow. We are one step closer to a possible decannulation...one baby step...one Noah step.


  1. You will all be in my prayers for a safe trip, excellent outcome in surgery and lots of positive and upbeat answers to your questions. May God uphold you each step of the way.

  2. I recently began working as a writer in communications & marketing at Children's Hospital Central California. KC’s old friend from AlphaGraphics, Jeff, works in the same department and he told us about you guys. I’m so glad he did.

    The story of your adventure with Mr. Man testifies to God’s generosity with His unlimited supply of grace and power and peace and joy and whatever else we may need for today.

    I’m tempted to put you on a pedestal for your remarkable strength and your inexplicable resilience, but I know who deserves the praise. Don’t get me wrong though. You are an awesome display of His splendor!

    I’m working on a couple of different stories on our fabulous NICU here at Children’s, but Noah belongs in a story of his own. I’ll contact you in the near future in hopes of scheduling an interview with you guys. (I know from this post that now’s not a good time.)

    May God’s glorious presence be magnified everywhere you step foot today so that people will say, “There’s something special about that Jackson family.” Yes, indeed there is!

    I pray removal of the “famous stent” goes well, that Noah’s trachea heals beautifully, and as far as his vocal cords… I pray God puts a new song in his mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.
