Hello Friends and Family,

This is a place where I will be posting updates on Jacob. Thank you all for your support, encouragement, gifts, and love! Everything you have done has made this whole process a little less painful and we are so grateful for that.

This blog won't be anything fancy. It is intended to provide everyone with accessible updates instead of mass texting or emailing which may not be the most ideal way to communicate with everyone.

I may also share medical details and my own personal thoughts so be forewarned! I have Polish blood which means that I have the "brutal honesty" gene. :)

To start I will review the details as many of you have been asking:

Monday June 17th- We leave for Toronto. We have a medical appointment at 3pm. Checking into a hotel.

Tuesday June 18th- Admit at 6am. Surgery scheduled for 8am. Surgery will take 5 hours. Once complete Jacob goes to PICU and then spends the night in ICU. The plan is that the next morning once he is doing ok he will get transferred onto the floor (inpatient plastics).

Today we are enjoying a family day. Jacob is practicing making "thhh" sounds and giving us lots of playful squeals, kicks, and rolls! James is currently napping and I am due for one too!

I will update as often as I can.

Love Monica


  1. Such a great idea! I have added it to my blog list and will be waiting for updates!

    Had a lovely time in the park today with everyone. Loved listening to Jacob's giggle. Made my day
