Tonight was a special night in our little family. I had the opportunity to just sit and enjoy the company of my son. The doctors came in and looked at his progress. While we were talking they spoke about numbers and data points, but to me, it was one more day that I was blessed to be with him. It was one day that we were told we would never get. So it was a special day.
Here is a picture of the flowers we have recieved to our room from many of you. We have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of love we have been shown through the calls, visits, comments to our blog, and prayers for our little family. Thank you!
Jeff and I were able to be in his room at exactly 7:46 to celebrate Jacob's first full day. We had the NICU nurse take this photo of us with Jacob just before we sang "Happy Birthday" to him. This was one thing we had talked about doing if we were blessed enough to have him for a full day. It was an emotional moment for both of us.
Please keep the prayers fervent, as we still have many challenges ahead. But our God has already shown us great mercy by being present and honoring us with a precious day with our son.
