Yesterday, I asked for prayers for Kaitlin, who is not only a fellow blogger, but one of my best friends in real life. Kait was being induced at 35 weeks yesterday. Jaxon Garrett was born last night weighing 6lbs 4oz and measuring 19.5 inches! However, I know that Jesse, Kait, and Jaxon would still appreciate prayers as Jaxon has been in the NICU since he was born.
He had mucous in his lungs at first, and was on a vent for awhile. He's breathing room air now (great news!), but the doctors are continuing to monitor him for pneumonia and an intestinal blockage. Jaxon hasn't demonstrated symptoms for either, but both can contribute to high levels of amniotic fluid, so the doctors are being cautious.
Kait and Jesse haven't been able to hold Jaxon yet, which I imagine must be agonizingly difficult!
Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers!
