May 6, 2011

Jackson is very tired today...His blood counts are very low, which explains the tiredness...He still managed a weak smile for his mommy and daddy.  His platelet count is almost to the point where he would need a platelet transfusion.  We shall see.  Jackson had a very nice week visiting with people from our church.  I am so grateful that someone was available to love on our baby when we so desperately want to be here and can't.  Jackson is still eating pretty well.  We are very thankful for that.  We were asked to have Jackson be a part of a study about Leukemia.  Doctors are trying to figure out why Down Syndrome babies recover better than other children.  The doctors will use some of his bone marrow and spinal fluid to use for research...very cool!
