Yay Progress!

Jacob continues to make amazing progress, thanks to prayers and the work that God is doing through the nurses and doctors. We truly believe that this journey has been about the verse that God showed us the day of Jacob's first surgery, ask and you shall recieve... God has given us so many blessings.

Jacob's report:

Jacob is on 2 liters of Vapotherm, this is remarkable! We were told that it would take "a while--like 1 or 2 months" for him to come down on his Vapotherm. A week ago Wednesday we were on 6 liters, and now we are on 2 liters. Go Jacob, Go! The doctors are really pleased with his progress on his respiratory support. He continues to tolerate full feeds and has been steadily putting on weight. He needs to gain weight and grow right lung.

Jacob and Dad...can you see the resemblence?

Here's a picture of Jacob as he is sleeping. I was playing with some of the features on our camera. How cool is this!
A couple of you have asked...YES, Jacob is already a Cardinals fan, not that he has a choice. Thanks to Jackie and John, friends of Jill, for his first Red Bird onesie! We're working on growing into it!

Have a wonderful blessed weekend and thanks for the prayers!


  1. I love it! A Cards fan from birth. That's the way to do it. I'm so thankful for all the progress and will keep the prayers coming!
