In the OR

Jacob is in the OR. Pulmonary and ENT are each doing a scope, they are removing his skin tag and he is getting a heart echo.

Yesterday they looked at his vocal cords and it looks like they are both paralyzed. 95% of the kids that have this need a tracheotomy immediately after they are paralyzed it is amazing he is doing so well. He will most likely need surgery to open up his airway in the near future.

We will learn much more after today's scopes. I will do a very long update with everything tomorrow. I am staying the night with him in the hospital tonight so will not be able to.

Please keep him in your prayers as he always has trouble with SATs after Cardiac Anethesia and yesterday it was found that his airway is very very small.

Thank you!


  1. You all remain in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Thinking of you guys. He is such a strong little boy! :)
