Jackson's Day

(From Jake and Sara)
Little guy had a busy day. They explored his lungs and heart. They found that he has something called Malacia. It affects a small amount of babies. What happens is when he takes a fast breath (like when we suck a malt up a straw) his airway tightens. This will hopefully fix itself. With the heart they found the pulmonary vein was small. So they stretched it out with a ballon. He had a breathing tube but did not have to keep it in past the procedure. He looks a 100% better. He had his eyes open at time when he came back. The doctors told us that they are going to up his Lasix and heart meds to help keep the vein open. So we hope this is what caused our problems on Wednesday.
