Update on Jayden

Jayden had his surgery on Friday. It took 11 hours. They started a little after 9:00 am and we finally got to see him post-op a little after 8:00 pm. He has been slowly progressing. He has been on tons of medications and tons of tubes have been coming out of him. One by one, they have been taken away. He now has his chest tubes out, dialysis tube out, a few others I don't remember out, and is now extubated (meaning his breathing tube is taken out and he is now breathing on his own). He is still in a bit of pain, so they had to sedate him a little today. He got the hiccups and cried right after every hiccup. I felt so bad for him and helpless because I could not help him. We have not been able to hold him yet, but that should be coming in the next couple of days. I cannot wait!! We give God the glory for protecting our baby boy. We named him Jayden, which means "God has heard." We believe God has definitely heard our cries out to Him and know he is protecting us and holding our sweet boy in His hands. Please continue to pray for Jayden and his recovery. Thank you so much for your support, love, and prayers!! We love you all!!
