Over his sickness

Poor Jacob has been super sick for the past 10 days. His fever spiked up to 104 and just wouldn't go away. Went to the doctor and he found nothing. That was Friday May 22. Couldn't stop the fever and now he added the big D, a rash on his face and lots of congestion, etc. to the mix. Went back to the doctor on Tuesday and found out he had STREP. Not strep throat, no Jacob can not do anything normal. The strep was on his face and in his sinuses! Then Mommy, Jackson and Joshua were tested positive for Strep. Only Daddy and Boo the cat escaped the misery. Luckily we caught it soon for the other 2 boys and they didn't suffer too much.

Jacob is still a little "snotty" and of course, the fever has increased his seizures.

Keep him in your prayers that the seizures decrease and that he kicks this sickness 100%!

Long Overdue Update

These are all of the diapers we received at Jacob's Birthday Party!
Thank you Thank you Thank you!This is Jacob at the Special Olympics Sensory Area. He enjoyed his trip! Mommy and the three boys on Easter after our Easter Egg Hunt!
Check out his cool new orange shoes.
Jacob's seizures had mostly stopped by the beginning of April. Under the direction of the Neurologist, we started weaning him off of one of his seizure meds. Unfortunately, 2 days later his seizures began again. Now, several weeks later, the seizures are still around (about 5-10 minutes apart). We went back on the med we were trying to go off of but so far no success.
For the past 4 days, Jacob has been sick with a fever from 99.5-104. That seemed to bring on even more seizures and he has been feeling so rotten that he has pretty much done nothing but sleep. Poor guy!
Please keep him in your prayers as we continue to find balance with these meds.
