Little Jaylon

We went up to see Daniel, Erin and little Jaylon again today. Jaylon is in NICU still because of his oxygen level. Erin explained to us that he has a little tiny pin hole in one of his lungs that is letting oxygen escape, causing his oxygen level to be to low. The doctor said it could heal up and close over at any time, so not to worry. They see this quite often in little ones who are born a little early. Jaylon was born about two weeks early. When I was in the NICU with Daniel and Jaylon, I was able to get this sweet picture of them. Isn't it precious. The nurse said Jaylon was a "belly sleeper". He loves to sleep on is stomach. As you can see, they have him in a little oxygen tent. Daniel said they put the little "napkin" on Jaylon's back because he didn't like the plastic of the tent rubbing on his little back apparently. We would appreciate your prayers so much for little Jaylon, that the Lord would heal his little lung so that he can come home with Mommy and Daddy on Christmas Day. As always, I'll keep you posted on his progress.

Erin is doing wonderfully. I am so proud of her. I know she was so concerned about the pain and all that she might have to deal with but it has been minimal and she is doing well. She looked so pretty today. She and Daniel said that she has gotten so many compliments on her hair, how pretty it is. Daniel has been staying at the hospital with her and watching over her. My, but we do love these two precious kids. We call them kids....*smile*......but they aren't. Or at least they don't think they are. *grin*

It took us almost three hours to get home from the hospital this evening. Freezing rain started falling at about four o'clock, so we left immediately. The traffic was horrible. We crawled along on 670, 71 , 70, and then 33 until we got just south of Logan. There were times we were barely going 15 miles an hour! And there were accidents every where. I am so thankful that we made it home safely. I was soooo glad to get home! I was impressed with the caution and safety that most drivers were using. I drove because Ed has some difficulty driving when it is dark and raining where there is alot of glare from headlights and the wet roads. I am worn out, so I am going to get ready for bed and get some much-needed rest.

May God sweetly bless dear Jaylon.

thank you so much, Denise. We're praying for you and your husband, for your healing and comfort. ((warm hugs))

We will certainly be praying for little Jaylon! I'm glad things went so well for Erin.

Be as careful as possible for the next few days. From what my son-in-law tells me, the rain/sleet/ice/slush combo is going to continue off and on thru the weekend.


Jewel said...

Thank you, Theresa...and we will be very careful, especially after last night. Have a blessed Christmas with all of your loved ones....from one non-shopper to another. *grin* (I.do.not.like.to.shop.either.) *smile*
