and will often go all day without oxygen! He has started physical and speech therapy and we only had to go to Atlanta two Wednesdays this month. Audri and I gave him a haircut yesterday and he really enjoyed it.
JD is continuing to grow and learn new things. Audri is doing school with him and he is working on learning numbers and letters.
Quick update, we are in Rome and doing well. Jacob just had his feedings increased to 29cc/hr with 5hrs off a day. JD is doing great and is able to see his friends much more often! I hope to update this site again in the near future.
Jacob had his surgery as scheduled on Tuesday and it went pretty well, he has not bounced back yet from the surgery so he is still on the ventilator and in the PICU. He is slowly waking up but is still in a lot of pain so he is getting morphine among other things.
The first test that came back was the ABR which looks at his hearing and it is worse than they thought, he has 100% loss in both ears.
Audri has spent a lot of time at the hospital and I worked for about a day and a half before coming home for the week. JD is scheduled for surgery next Friday, which will require him to spend one day in the hospital but they are expecting a speedy recovery for him.
This week has been mostly uneventful, we are gathering items to sell in a yard sale next Saturday the 15th. We will having at my parent's house and everyone is invited to join, message me for directions.
Jacob is scheduled for August 25th, he will be admitted on the 24th to make sure there are no holdups. JD's will be on September 4th and he should be home after only one night. We are thankful that Jacob's could be rescheduled so quickly.
For those who do not follow us on other mediums, I am sorry. The boys have been out of the hospital for several weeks now and are doing well. Jacob was supposed to have surgery last Wednesday but it was canceled due to a blotched test. We are working to get both of the boys scheduled for August.
