surgery update.............

Been at the hospital all day, just home at 8:30.  They took Jacob in about 9:30 this morning and brought him back around 3:00.  they ended up having to put him on the ecmo machine,  (heart lung by pass machine).  Jacob was missing the whole left side of his diaphragm and everything was up in his chest cavity.  his organs were blue meaning they were not getting enough oxygen.  they had to create a piece for the part of the diaphragm that was missing.  his lung on the left side is the size of a chicken nugget.  He would not survive with out the ecmo machine.  he has a 40 % chance now. just keep praying.. 
I'm sorry to keep asking for prayers.. but I have too.  He needs them...
come on God.. please.

Bojojr was given a 35% change of survival as a newborn. I thank God continually for his life.

May God hold you all in the palm of His hand and bring you comfort.

My heart is with Jacob and your family. I've been there with a child in NICU; I know how hard it is.

Little Jacob is on my mind constantly and in my prayers. I am so sorry that you all have to go through this. So glad the surgery is over and he gets to rest. That machine makes it easier on his little body and does the work for him. God bless this sweet baby.

I just went back and read your previous posts- I am your newest follower. We lost a little granddaughter due to hospital error a few years ago and so I understand what you are going through. I am praying that Jacob grows to a healthy young lad. I have a full call to prayer on my blog tomorrow- Blessings to you- xo Diana
