On September 16, 2008, our lives were forever changed when James Wilson (J.W.) entered the world. He is a living miracle who has touched our hearts and revealed to us the greatness of God. This is his amazing story.

The Longest Stay

Hello to all again.

Just to update, JW is still in the hospital, today marks two weeks. Over the weekend he was starting to flair with his respiratory issues. He was on 2 lpm of oxygen but they had to increase to 4 then 6 lpm. He has been on 6 for the last few days and holding steadily. The xray showed some haziness that they believe to be the bacteria coming back that was supposed to be taken care of with the antibiotic. The bacteria is called pseudomonas, you can find some info at this website that might explain a little more. http://www.healthscout.com/ency/68/471/main.html

He is doing wonderful oftherwise, laughing, smiling, just a real joy for the nurses and child life staff. Here is a photo I took of him on Tuesday...
Sorry its a little blurry, took it with my phone.

He is getting so big, thank you everyone for your prayers, thoughts and encouragement. He is such a blessing to the world, especially his family.


will update as we progress

EMERGENCY! Call 911.

I never in my life thought I would have to call 911 for anyone in my family much less one of my own children. But as life has it, the EMS staff definitely know who we are by name. Lately JW has been having trouble with choking on his secretions that he can't swallow when he gets really upset. We had this in Nov. Dec and now in Feb.
On wednesday, I think, ( I am not even sure what day it is today) JW had one of his episodes and starting to lose oxygen with my nurse Crystal while I was shopping for something for dinner at HEB with the older two kiddos. I was talking with her and Chriselda, my other nurse, and things were getting worse, so we had to call 911. He was doing good when they got there but we sent him on to San Antonio because we weren't sure what was going on. Apparently during the flight he stopped breathing and they had to intubate so when we arrived at the hospital he was much worse than I was thinking.
He is doing much better now they are soon looking to take him off the ventilator. Today he was awake but still kind of groggy but looking much better.
JW has been growing and doing so well at home, he is just such a joy in our lives, a joy that I, with the help of my nurses and family, work very hard to have. I just want to let my wonderful nurses/family, they are basically family now, that I appreciate everything they do to help me keep my child well. I saw a little something at the hospital gift shop today, buying something for JW for valentine's day, that said "Nurses are Angels on Earth" and that is so true.
Thank you to everyone for all of your thoughts and prayers sent our way, they are greatly appreciated. I just felt like blogging a little, I will return soon with an update on how our little guy is doing and a few more specifics of his condition. God Bless!
