Update : Sunday, 8/7/2011 9AM

Yesterday was another great day of progress!


Court sat in her wheelchair most of the day, not wanting to get back in the bed because she feared she would fall asleep and not be able to see Jackson. :) Now that she has had a taste, she can't get enough! I may be bias, but he is pretty damn special!

I spoke with her this morning, and she said she was able to get out of bed and walk a bit. Watching her recovery is just miraculous! Her determination is evident now, but I think it was there even at her sickest!


Jackson had a pretty exciting day also. His platelets were still a little low, so they had to do another injection. The doctor told me not to worry too much - it was most likely part of the healing and recovery process. They did a full body ultrasound to make sure he didn't have any clotting, and he didn't. They said he had a few seeping veins, but that was normal and they would heal up.

We are currently waiting on an MRI to see if there is any structural brain damage from the whole ordeal. They don't really expect any, seeing how all of his other organs have done so well.

Court tried breastfeeding yesterday too. Little Jax latched right on first try, without any problems. So now we just have to see if mom can start producing milk after this whole ordeal. I believe she can - since she wants it so bad!


Today, Court is going to try and hang out with Jax as much as possible! I hope it works out, and she gets all the time that she can stand!
