Jo had a good night! Coughing a few times, which is good to help clear his respiratory system. It also takes a lot of muscles to cough!
One miracle to share:
Yesterday Jo was blessed with many visitors. Friends, family, classmates, and teachers. It makes us as parents so proud to see how many people love and miss Jo. It is a great counter emotion to the sadness we've experienced the last 8 days, we also laughed for the first time in awhile.
The miracle, my good friends JJ and Jeff (more brothers than friends) stood bedside with me to pray for a peaceful night of rest and healing for Jo. As JJ reached and touched Jo's hand he squeezed it tightly and turned his head towards us! It was startling to see but absolutely gave us chills. Jo is in there fighting, and God is watching and guiding everything.
I will post again soon, just had to share. Keep the prayers and positive vibes coming, we feel it everyday and it helps us more than we could ever explain.
We love you so much jojobinks, mommy and daddy are here be strong, God is holding you in his hands.
Love you always sweet angel,
Mommy and Daddy
