Wagon Rides

Jackson has been stuck in his hospital room for days. The only time he gets to leave is when he has to go get more tests or scans.

Yesterday he got to go for two different wagon rides. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. He got to have a chest x-ray in the morning due to his lowered oxygen levels, and he went for an ultrasound yesterday afternoon to see if they can find the cause of his stomach pains.

We ride in the elevator down stairs, get the tests done, and head right back upstairs. Usually Jackson whines and whimpers in pain the entire time.

We found part of the reason for his stomach pain and for some of the fevers. Jackson is struggling with several infections. One in his blood, and one called C-Diff which is causing the stomach pain. Luckily the Pancreatitis is getting better. We thought we were half way done with our first hospital stay, but turns out we'll be at the hospital until things resolve themselves- perhaps another 2 weeks.
