Day +205

It has been over 200 hundred days since Jacob's 2nd bone marrow transplant. I look at him and am amazed by the many miracles we have seen throughout his journey.  I am so grateful and feel so blessed to have this precious little boy in my life.  His checkup last week had all positive news.  The fluid around his heart is finally starting to shrink.  We don't have to see the cardiologist again until December, just to make sure it clears completely.  Jacob was able to stop his blood pressure medication, like I was also hoping.  He also stopped his potassium supplement.  We have a consultation this week with the surgeon who placed Jacob's central line almost 19 months ago to discuss removing it.  We also will try coming off his hydrocortisone this week to see if his adrenal glands will start functioning again. We should know by the end of the week whether or not he has any adrenal functionality yet.  Please pray that he will!  We are asking for this next miracle in progressing toward a complete recovery.

This is such a happy post. I will pray that his adrenal gland works on the first try. I will pray it with all my heart. The boys look great in the costumes. I'm so happy you're home.
