8:54pm Jaxton’s Bear

Jaxton husmann Bear

i was able to go over and see jaxton and josh. they are both doing so great! josh is right by jaxton’s side, holding and rubbing his little leg and talking to him the whole time. he tells him what the nurses are doing, he cheers him on, and tells him he is doing a good job! it is the most awesome thing and brought tears to my eyes…what an awesome dad! the neonatal doctor came over while i was standing next to lisa. he said that they are running tests, but jaxton is still proving to be confusing. he has signs of trisomy 13/18 but he does not have some of the most classic signs (ie he has no cleft defects). they are taking x-rays of his heart and his brain to find out what is going on. while i was in with jaxton, he looked so cute. apparently i got the info wrong, he weighed 3lbs 12 oz. his coloring looked good and he was squirmin all over the place! he even opened his eyes a few times and kept moving his mouth and tongue around to figure out was was going on with the ventilator 🙂 i walked back over to lisa’s recovery room so that lisa could call josh on the phone…it was so sweet. they are both doing so well. they both have such a peace about how things have gone and how they are going. there is still alot going on, but we are blessed and encouraged  so far.

more to come later! aimee

ps. jake is having a blast at his friends house, he is looking forward to a sleep over!

    I just wanted to take a moment to say how inspiring your story has been and how your blog has touched my heart. I know you don’t know me but I feel like I know you now. My entire Facebook news feed is a continuous prayer for your family and for your special baby boy Jaxton. You are such an amazing person and I know that God has given you strength to get through what will probably be the toughest part of your life. I am continuing to pray for Jaxtons strength and several miracles that he will live a long and healthy life with such a wonderful family. May God grant you all the strength, peace, love, and comfort you will need during this time. ❤ Thank you for allowing the world to follow your journey and being such an inspiration! Continuing to pray…xoxo

  20. Hopefully they will find that it was not trisonomy and just a few special problems that will be able to be corrected with surgery. Praise GOD! Hang in there little Jaxton, give God time to work his miracles!

    Aimee~ thank you so much for the updates! I have been glued to the computer when able. I have recently moved and don’t have the internet yet so when I’m not at work I have friends and family checking the blog and keeping me posted.
    Josh, Lisa, Jake and Jaxton~ I have been thinking about you and praying for you all constantly. I cannot imagine how hard this is for all of you yet you continue to have faith in God that his will be done in all your lives. I can just see Josh talking to his baby boy and encouraging him… What a wonderful inspitration to others you all are! God Bless!
