day 6...

another quick update... I seriously had no clue what day today was, until someone on facebook wrote over the hump day.. I couldnt figure it out for the life of me..  since friday all the days have become one!   yesterday I went to work for a half the day.  then ran home and made chili, an awesome salad and special brownies.. (not the special brownies from the 70s!! lol!)  to take up to the kids.. they had been eating so much fast food, tony was dying for a salad, and chili sounded good to nessa.
I didnt get home til late lastnight, mostly because I was half way home before I realized that I had Marlainas car seat in my car and had to turn around and drive all the way back to the hospital so that Robert, Tiff and Marlaina could come home too!  (tiff and the baby rode up with me and met rob there).  when we all got home Tiffany made hotdogs and I made milkshakes and we were eating chili dogs and milkshakes at a terrible hour for dinner last night!
While I was in with the baby, they drs were concerned about somethign they saw on his chest xray and there was something going on with his breathing.. but it turned out to be mechanical with the breathing.. remember he is on a ventilator and the ecmo.. and they are doing all the work of this lungs and heart. 
what they saw in the xray they think is an air pocket that if it gets any bigger could put pressure on his heart, so they are watching in closely.  keep praying!
he was fairly stable last night and everyone was breathing a little easier.  I think the kids had gotten a good nights sleep the night before.  they are such troopers..
Im going to head up to the hospital shortly, but first I have to clean up this house a bit.. it is a total mess... SERIOUSLY!  that and I have NO groceries!  I am a total mess myself.   Where the hell is my fairy god mother!  never mind... send her to tony and nessa.. they need her more then I.  
I would seriously give up every thing I have and my own life for that baby and them right now.  when I think of that sweet baby lying up in the nicu attached to so many freaken tubes and machines.. it just breaks my heart....
thanks for all your prayers...

Good Morning, Viv. I put out the prayer request for your Jacob this morning. I know we have a lot of prayer warriors in blogland that will come through.

I worked in a hospital for many years and my hubby is a chaplain so we have seen many, many miracles happen...but right now we just need ONE, don't we?

Hang in there because you know that the family will look to YOU as the strong one, I know that from experience.

Blessings to you today- xo Diana

So many thoughts of that sweet family. Know that we are continuing to think of them often. Thank you for keeping us updated. The heart of a mother is so big. If we could only do the miracles that God does we could truly cure the world. Many hugs...Renee

My heart breaks for you. I know it kills you to see him that way.....hopefully this phase passes quickly. So sweet of you to take homemade food to them. I bet it was good. Even the chil dogs sonds good to me but I am fasting at the moment. Darn houses.....way can't they make them to self clean.
