Its been a long time!

Wow it has been so long since I have updated this site!

Jackson is doing very well! His joints have stayed good for the most part. Occasionally he gets some fluid and swelling in his knee but it goes away as soon as we do the next infusion. We see Dr. Bothun on the 28th to check the eyes. Its been awhile since we have seen him so I keeping my fingers crossed that they are clear! He only takes 1 eye drop a day now. The infusions have been going so good since we got the insurance to approve it as a outpaitent treatment. Before Jackson would have to be admitted to the Children's Hospital and get his treatment. Now we go to the Children's Hospital but we go to the infusion center which is outpaitent and it cuts the time in half! When he was admitted we would be there from 8am til 8pm, now were there 7:30am til 12:30pm! Makes life a whole lot easier. If his eyes are good on the 28th we may even decide to push the infusions out to every 6 weeks which would be nice. The summer gave us a nice break from all the sickness. Becuase of the meds Jackson takes his immune system is commpromised so he was always sick. So I am bracing that with fall here and winter coming that this winter will be no different:(.

We had a baby girl on July 28th. Her name is Brynley Elizabeth, weighed 6lb 5oz and 19in long. We are so blessed! Jackson loves her a lot and is very helpful. He is a little jealous of our attention though and has been acting out a lot but were working on it.

Well thats it for now. I will try and update after the appt on the 28th!
