OK so finally after trying many times I was able to post the picture of when I got to hold our little stinker. Although the picture quality is still not good. Blogger must be having issues.
Today the kids and I went to see Jaden (Sal had to go to St. Cloud to take care of some work.) When we got to the hospital, the power was out. We had to walk up to the fifth floor and there were 2 sets of extra long stairs for each floor. Still recovering from delivery, I have to say I was a little tired by the time we got to the 5th floor. I also thought about how he was supposed to be in surgery and power had been going on and off all morning so I guess good thing he did not have it today. They do have emergency back up but still there is no emergency back up for the surgeons concentration and focus.
We went in to see Jaden and he still had a fever and was frowning his brows alot. He was a little on the crabby side today. Ethan kept poking around at Jaden so I had to take them out. Well we just found out last night that there is a play area and if there are volunteers we can drop our kids off for awhile. I brought the kids and got to spend over an hour of uninterupted time with Jaden. I was in HEAVEN!!!
The doctor came in around the time Sal got there from St. Cloud. He said the infection looks to be from either the birth canal or swallowing some fluids while in the process of coming into this world. (I am a little confused with the verbage so sorry if you don't understand.) They also did the tests on his kidneys and from what they saw everything looked to be working fine. They were worried that his urine would go back up into his kidneys. It looked as though it is fine and at this point nothing is wrong with his kidneys.
The surgery is still scheduled for Friday. They will run more tests on Thursday and then let us know then if Friday is a go. We really hope it will not be pushed back again. We are very anxious to get on with this whole process.
We want to send out many thanks to everyone not only for the support on this blog but also for the flowers, gifts, groceries, money towards the Ronald McDonald House and help watching the kids. It means so much to us. We have gotten so much from you all in prayer and in thoughfulness We are getting support from others we would never imagine it to come from. We have gotten support from our friends family. How thoughtful and incredible that is. Just look at what God has given to us. We are the luckies people to have all of you in our lives!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. We love you all, Steph and Sal
