Sleep, eat, sleep, eat

3:46pm  After a so-so night we are all just taking it easy today. Jacob is working hard at eating more and more each feed and getting back onto his routine slowly. His stomach was very very upset last night and we made the decision to try going without pain meds since he wasn't keeping them down anyways. I am happy to report that Jacob's last pain med was at 11pm last night and he is doing ok today! He is a little cranky, but I believe its from the major shift in schedule.

The swelling is also significantly reduced. He looks like our little boy once again!

We have been slowly getting to all the surprises left for us here at home. It is so nice to be cheered by all of the cards and messages and to be able to focus on recovery vs. grocery shopping and meal prep. Thank you everyone for taking such great care of us!

We even received 96 rolls of toilet paper from Adrienne (LOL, made me laugh!), and had our lawncare and weeding done by Kendra (38 weeks pregnant) and Josh! Those are just a FEW of the many wonderful gifts we received. Thank you to EVERYONE!

I hope everyone enjoys this summer weather and has a relaxing weekend!

We will never forget your generosity and support.


Below you will find the facebook update from Kathy who ran 7 hrs 52 mins and dedicated a mile to Jacob.


  1. I am so glad you are back, so glad Jacob is healing so swiftly! Im glad you're still posting, too! Im sure people are just as eager for your updates, as they were earlier in the week! Keep up the great progress, Jacob! See you soon, when you are ready and things have continued to settle down!

  2. Jacob, Maggie has missed you dearly and can't wait to roll around on the floor again with you once you are feeling better. She has been practicing the log roll you showed her two weeks ago and is eager to show you her progress.

  3. Oh how lovely is it to know you are back in your cozy home and feeling loved and supported! It is amazing how being at home has already lift Jacob's spirits. Those babies know what's going on!
