Jackson Update and Prayer Request

October 14, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well we got the results today from Jackson’s sleep study.  The doctors report showed that his tonsils and adenoids are causing him to snore and struggle breathing at night to where he does stop breathing.  But there is also a mild case of central apnea.  This involves the brain and one that our neurologist thinks could be caused from the shortness of breaths causing the read to be that way.  He wants to see the report so he can advise what needs to be done as well as see how Jackson responds after the surgery.

So, Jackson is scheduled to have surgery to remove his tonsils and adenoids on Thursday.  We are waiting for the nurse to call with all the details today.  Nana is driving down from MO tomorrow to help with Josiah and our sanity.  Please continue to pray for our little guy.  He has had such a ruff start to a very young life.

Here is how you can pray specifically:

– Pray for HEALING

– Pray that God would be in Control

– Pray that the doctors have wisdom in what is going on and how to treat it

– Pray that surgery goes well and recovery is fast and painless

– Pray that Josiah still gets attention and isn’t affected negatively by whats going on with Jackson

– Pray that God would be our provider spiritually, physically, emotionally, and financially

– Pray that God would multiply our sleep, comfort our fears, and give us supernatural peace and rest

    I am so happy that a plan is in effect for you. While we have not had any tonsils out at house, we have had two 3 set of tubes and a set of adnoids. At this age children are amazing and heal so fast. Prayers going your way. Kristine

    I’m glad you all got an answer. I always thought in the back of my mind that it was the adenoids/tonsils. Luke had his adenoids out when he was little like Jackson. Luke went from SNORING to wake the neighborhood plus that lapse in breathing that made sleeping stressful TO a quiet peaceful sleep. So long ago… and now there is NOT a quiet peaceful bone in his body. Take care and take it easy on all that yummy hospital food. Love you all.

    Hey Dan, We’ll be praying for you. We were kind of in this position last week. Thanks for your prayers then.

    Austin had this same thing done quite a few years ago and it’s been a great thing for him.

    God is with you and he’ll provide peace to you guys and healing to Jackson.
