This has been a bit of a rough week - I think it's safe to say that Jackson hates the nasal stints. I don't blame him. How would you like your nose shoved up against your face with two prongs, creating sores on the inside of your nose? Not fun. We just keep telling ourselves that it'll be worth it in the long run, and Jackson will end up with a much better repair. In the meantime, he's pretty unhappy and much more fussy than usual. And he doesn't like to sleep alone these days, just wants to be comforted.
The good news is that we now have his first surgery date - May 1st! So we only have to endure this process for another 4 weeks. Very good news.
As far as the hernia, Jackson will most likely be having surgery in the next week. Our boy is a rockstar.
