Mustache Bandage

Jackson has what they call "rhino rockets" up his nose to help with the clotting and drainage. On top of the rhino rockets he has a gauze mustache which catches the excess blood and drainage from his nose.

We just got back from his CT scan and had to Change his mustache bandage again. This is his third Mustache bandage.

Before he went down for his CT scan he was in an incredible amount of pain after a trip to the bathroom. His morphine ran out and the nurse didn't get him more soon enough. It was a very rough 45 minutes. I wish I could take away his pain. I wish I could be in his place.

He is finally relaxing enough that he is almost asleep again. The more he sleeps the faster he will heal and the sooner we can go home.

There is construction noise outside of our room. They are putting on baseboards in the hallway. The noise keeps Jackson awake. Anytime I talk to the nurse he tells us to be quiet. He is mellow but irritable because of the pain. Hopefully the drugs will kick in soon.


  1. Poor guy hope you feel better Jack

  2. We love you Jack! Get well soon!

  3. Hang in there Jackson! We are all thinking about you!

  4. Jacob was just asking about Jackson today. He wanted to go play at Jackson's house! He thinks Jackson is the best!! We are praying for him everyday - especially between 7 and 8.

  5. Your family has been in our prayers. Hang in there.


Thank you for taking time to comment. I read each and every comment to Jackson and they brighten his spirits. He loves that you are supporting him through reading his blog.
