Day 121!....still kickin'!

I am pooped....I have not pooped...I just am pooped. I had a busy day of recovering. It was such a crazy night and it wore me out. I slept lots comfortably. Aunt Nancy stayed the day and helped where she could. Miss Ann Marie (my nurse) came over to check on me and said I was 100X better than yesterday.....that's not hard to tell since I am breathing today! I even went outside for some fresh air and a visit to the Magic Clubhouse. I helped Mom and Aunt Nancy in the garden. Who would have thought after a day like yesterday, I would be out gardening today?!?!? It was like we were back to "normal"...whatever that is. God is so good. Please know that this is of no strength of my own.....it is God who is pulling me and my family through this time and He is here, right here, with us every step of the way. I know you all are telling me that I am strong and that I am a fighter....it's true, I am, but only by God's strength. I have been eating good and still trying to poop but no nasties yet...just stinky "poots" (those are farts). I am on an anitbiotic just to make sure there are no beginnings of pneumonia...they say I may have aspirated and that could have been why we aren't hearing too much air flow in my right lung.....Doc isn't sure but he said it wouldn't hurt to do it just in case....so I get bubble gun flavored goodness med...mmmmmmmmm. YAWN! Well, I am sleepy and it is about time for some grub and bubble gum so I gotta run. Keep prayin'! Thanks so much! Love you all!

Fresh air and a visit to the Magic Clubhouse are a great combination to help a boy gain strength! I agree with you, Jacob, we serve a mighty God who is holding you and your family each step of the way.

"Heavenly Father, I praise you and thank you for precious Jacob and his family who love him dearly. Thank you for holding them so very close and guiding them along Your paths. Please continue to give them strength and love with sweet Jacob."

Blessings to you - Lynne B.

I am so glad to hear how much better you are feeling today. I'm praying for POOP too. A little fresh air and gardening are always good for you and mommy too. Days like yesterday are hard on everyone but I know that it is Gods strength that you have fueling your tank!:) He is so good with babies. Praying for you every day sweet Jacob, you are such a blessing to me.

Love and Hugs, Laurie in Ca.
