Another update

Below is a picture of little Jaylon one of the few times that he's had his eyes open. Here he is on daddy's lap, sleeping.
And here he is being watched over by Grandpa Ed. In this picture, Jaylon was hooked up to a c-pap, stomach tube, and IV, among other things.

And below is his little foot in his daddy's hand. See how long his toes are? *smile*

Jaylon has been diagnosed with Necrotizing Enterocolitis. You can read about it here. As of yesterday evening, a bit of infection had been discovered so they were going to move his IV into a more mainline vein, possibly in his little head. At this point, the doctors have told us that any change in his condition for the worse will mean an immediate transfer to Children's and surgery.
We are still trusting the Lord to heal little Jaylon, so that he doesn't have to go through all of that. We will be going to the hospital later today to see our little grandbaby once again after we have our annual New Year's Eve Day lunch at Red Lobster with my brothers, sisters and our spouses. May each of you have a blessed and Happy New Year!

He is slowly but surely getting better though it may not look like it. Thanks so much for praying for him, Barbara. May you and your family have blessed and happy new year!

Bless his precious heart, my prayers continue.

As of this morning, Denise, little Jaylon has improved quite a bit. It's just a slow process. Again, thank you for your prayers.
