YEAH!!!! Jackson got to come home last night!!!! I am so happy! We are praying for an uneventful time at home! He goes in next Wednesday the 21st to get a bone marrow biopsy and to check his blood counts. We are so thankful to have time at home with our little man! :-)

Jackson is doing well today! His counts are up a little bit...we are hoping this is a good sign and that they will continue to go up so he can go home really soon! He is starting to show that he is a little sinner too...:-) He is definitely starting to test authority, and will scream and cry when he doesn't get his way. He also is like every other child and does not want to eat his vegetables. :-) Erik and I sometimes have these moments when we are stern with him or discipline him and he makes the funniest faces and we both have to look away or walk away or we will laugh. ( I know that is terrible :-() On Monday we had some bad weather here and while we were at the hospital they had a tornado warning. So they moved every patient out of their room and into this central area....so many germs...Thankfully it only lasted about a half an hour. Thank you to all the prayer warriors out there who faithfully pray for us on a daily basis....I know it is because of people like you that God gives us strength even on the hardest days.

Jackson is happy and playful today! His blood counts are very low, my guess is that they have bottomed out....praying they will come up quickly so that he can go home! I have gotten another cold and so I have to wear a mask around Jackson....the fun of being a teacher...:-( I am hoping I don't get him sick. We are enjoying spending the day together. Jackson sends out lots of hugs!

Today Jackson's blood counts dropped. He received blood today because his hemoglobin dropped below 8(normal is 12 and above). He has been very sleepy and mellow today because of his low blood counts. He is currently still receiving antibiotics and will probably continue to do so until his counts come back up so that he doesn't spike another fever. So far the blood cultures they took on Wednesday are still negative!!! yeah! They have to monitor them for a little while more, but negative right now is on the right track. Thanks for all of the negative thoughts! :-) I can't believe in 3 days my baby will be 11 months old...however it kinda feels like he should be 11 years old! :-)
