He's improving

Thanks to all who've e-mailed and asked about Jake! He's doing better today than he's been since Sunday.



We've been doing breathing treatments every three to four hours at home since Monday, and he's on an oral steroid. This morning I did take him in to the pediatrician so she could check his ears again and do a re-check of his lungs. His lungs sound clear, which is GREAT news, and his wheezing is all coming from his throat and nose. Since his ears weren't any better and he's been on Amoxicyllin for 5 days, she went ahead and gave him a Rocephin shot to clear the infection up. THANKS, Dr. Amy! I hope it works.



His appetite has been terrible all week ... he hasn't wanted to eat or drink anything. But late this afternoon and tonight he took several ounces from two bottles, so I hope tomorrow he'll be interested in even more. His temperament amazes me ... he continues to be sweet despite the way he feels; he's just more clingy and less "smiley" than usual. Even so, I took these pictures when we got home from the pediatrician's office today, and he was just precious ...



Keep thinking of him; he's sleeping now and I hope he sleeps well overnight. Thanks again to everyone for your concern and encouragement over the last few days!

That's awesome. That last pic may be my favorite of him ever.

It may be my favorite, too. He gives me that face all the time, but it's the first time I've caught it as a lasting image.
