i have heard so many words that i dont understand and so many things that are going on that am not even sure. jaxton is here! he is not in any pain! there will be lots of decisions that lisa and josh have to make…some sooner rather than later. right now lisa is in the NICU with jaxton!! she and josh are spending quality time as a family. the doctor was able to remove the other cyst from jaxton’s umbilical cord. right now they are inserting a central line. this is a more permanent IV line and give will jaxton better access to medication. jaxton does have VSD, a heart condition involving a hole. his heart is large for his size and not developed “normally”. they have moved him from a ventilator which breathes 60 times to a high frequency ventilator which breathes over 400 times a min…this is helping his lungs because they are formed more like a preemie.  the omephalocele (sorry if that is spelled wrong) is large and will not be able to be operated on right now. it includes his intestines and his liver, or at least part of it. becuase he has grown in the womb with the “O” his belly is not big enough to hold the organs, which is why they cant do surgery right now.


right now, this is all that i can think of, thank you for being patient with me. there are so many decisions to be made. please pray that lisa and josh have peace about their decisions. please pray that the doctors can get a very accurate  picture of what is going on and what they can do to give jaxton the best care possible.

    You are doing a fantastic job with the updates, medical jargon and all. As an NICU nurse, this can be so confusing to all. It will be a rollercoaster ride for all involved, but with you being so kind to do the updates, it allows Lisa and Josh to stay with their precious baby, yet still get the word out. You are truly an inspiration

    Aimee , Thank you for supporting Josh and Lisa as you have. We ‘ve been watching for your words all night and wanting to know how to pray. Your efforts have helped. We asked God right now for divine wisdom for Josh and Lisa and to have His hand upon Jaxton. Dennis and Pam

    Aimee thank you so much for the updates. My heart is so heavy for them right now. Daddy God has them in the palm of His hand and I just pray for comfort and peace for Josh and Lisa and wisdom as they make decisions. That God’s will would be obvious and evident.

    Thank you, Aimee for all the updates. All your heartfelt words.


  14. Sounds like Jaxton is doing pretty well and I’m glad they had a safe delivery. =) Thanks for keeping us updated.


  15. Thanks for the update Aimee – I anxiously await an update this morning on how the rest of the night went. I hope they are holding him constantly and enjoying every moment. He is such a doll and I’m so glad I was able to be there for it – I’m thankful God is giving them time to be with Jaxton.
    Thanks again. 🙂
