Update #2 on JJ

Erica sent me an email regarding everything going on with little JJ and is okay with me continuing putting updates here so that all of you also know whats going on. Erica did have a c-section with JJ and while the doctors were pulling him out they broke BOTH of his legs. Poor little guy as if he didn't have enough going on! He is unable to move his legs (he was unable to on u/s, too), but does cry out when his legs are touched. They did put the shunt in yesterday and everything is looking good so far there. They are putting a feeding tube in his tummy today so that he can get all the nourishment that he needs. Doctors still don't know why all of this is going on with JJ which I'm sure is frustrating for Erica and Stever. Erica did tell me that she is a celebrity at the hospital because they had to do the craziest c-section to get JJ into the world. They had to come up with a never used stitch to close up her uterus!

Continue to lift this family up in your prayers as they have a really long road ahead of them. We believe in you, JJ, you can do it! And, we love you Erica, stay strong!

Thank you for the update. I just realized I should head over to Erica's blog to leave her a comment. I can't believe that JJ's legs were broken. How terrible. I continue to pray for JJ, Erica, and her family.
