Jo had another productive day of healing and continues to need less support overall. He is only taking over the counter tylenol or ibuprofen for pain. He is breathing without a neck splint, supporting his own head muscularly. He is off of any seizure medication and tomorrow they will remove the sutures from the G tube surgery.
I had a nice discussion with a few Drs today about the need for the tracheotomy. It is scheduled for Tuesday following a thorough review of it's need by the surgeon. If Jo continues to show improvement each day until Tuesday there is a chance we would cancel the procedure. Lets's all focus our prayers on Jo's continued breathing improvements between now and Tuesday. For the first time I felt like the Drs were leaning towards either decision being acceptable if Jo continues to improve.
Jo's eyes continue to move rapidly beneath his eyelids when we talk to him and during exams. It really feels like he is trying to open them and today his right eye peeked through the narrowest of a slit in his eyelids. It was very exciting, and we all looked around to make sure we were seeing the same thing. The prayers are working!!! Let's keep it up!!
I look forward to reading more stories of paying it forward. Everyone needs prayer and a little help here and there!
Jojobinks mommy and daddy are here and we see you trying to open up those beautiful eyes. Keep fighting Jo, you are so close. God is healing you and people around the world are praying for you. You have let the Lord's power shine in your healing, you've got this Jo!! We love you to the moon and back sweet angel, we miss you so much!
