We just wanted to send out a quick post to let you know that we no longer have to give Jacob the Lovenox shots. YAY! Thank you for the prayers.

The ultrasound showed that the clot was still there, in his IVC, but that it had calcified (attached itself to the wall of the vessel and hardened) and is not in danger of breaking off and blocking blood flow. So, they saw no reason to continue the blood thinner.

Needless to say, tonight's bedtime routine was much more pleasant for Jacob (and us) now that we don't have to "shoot him," as GG would say...

Have a blessed week. Thanks for checking in with us.


  1. Yayyyyy!!! Go Jacob! Give him a big hug from me! Praying for you guys!

  2. Well, it's a good thing that you don't have to "shoot him" anymore :) Love you guys!!

  3. Such great news! Love the "shoot him" comment. I hear that from my kids when it's time for immunizations. They want to know if they have to get shot. Pretty cute.
