Two Steps Back

The emotional highs and lows continue this morning: Jordan swelled up again last night. His blood pressure was low yesterday so they ordered more blood products to pump him back up. It worked; although a little too well. Jordan has accumulated too much fluid again and will need to pee it back off. His chest x-ray still doesn't look good.

We can tell that the medical team now feeling stressed as well. They have started discussing other options down the road - including giving up. Jordan hasn't responded to any of their treatments to open his lungs. It is hard for parents to have these discussions. We are invested emotionally and spiritually in our son's progress. We hold on to hope and continue to believe that Jordan will not give up. With sincere gratitude we want to thank everyone who is praying for our son. It gives us hope and strength to know how many people are lifting him up in prayer.

"And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." - Genesis 2:7

"Lord, you knew our son before he was born and he was beautifully and wonderfully made.  We worship you as the God who fills Jordan's lungs with the breath of life.  We pray for Jordan's x-ray Father - that he would be able to sustain life on his own and come off of ECMO. Amen."
