Quite the handsome devil.

Jackson is the funniest guy he knows.

I know this is hard to believe, but Jackson laughed last night. No sound involved and no change in facial expression (other than big eyes) but when Ashley showed him a funny video he made with his brothers he lit up and his body shook with laughter at the funny parts.  Is that cool, or what?

Jackson is a little more alert today, more eye contact and movement. We wore him out this morning getting him up and walking him. Then Ashley and I took him for a ride and looked out windows that showed actual trees and sky. He was very awake for all of that, but by the time we got back to his room he was ready for a good nap.

No stomach issues today. Hopefully we have resolved that. Dr. Thompson wants to do a repeat CT scan on Friday.  If we aren't having any more GI issues, I think we will get clearance to leave for rehab. Not holding my breath, but it's looking better every day.

Yesterday I was thinking about how far we have come in the last 4 weeks. There have been low points for sure, but there have been miracles both big and small. Someone told us not to hesitate to ask God for a miracle. The scripture found in Genesis 18:14 popped into my mind: "Is anything too hard for the Lord...?" I know that the One who can move mountains and is aware of the fall of a sparrow is watching over us.

Love you all,
