UPDATE: The surgery went well and Jack did great! Thank you for praying! The surgeons were able to extubate in the O.R. with no issues. If all goes well with recovery, we'll be headed home soon with our baby boy.
As I write this post, Jack is in surgery to repair the hernia he's had for several months. This is a routine procedure but it requires intubation which is a concern for Jack's very fragile lungs. The docs hope to extubate him in the O.R. before he comes back to the NICU but there's a good chance his lungs won't be strong enough which would extend his time in the hosptial considerably. If all goes well, they expect he could be sent home relatively soon. Please pray to that end!
Jack is 180 days old today. He'll be six months to the day tomorrow.
Matthew 6:25-26 -"Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?"
