Jake Update

Last night, after a short stint in the special care nursery, Jake had increased respiratory efforts and was transferred to the NICU. He is currently on CPAP, which provides continual pressure to help force air into his lungs and reminds him to breathe. He is also requiring a little additional oxygen and breathing quickly. He also started antibiotics in case they determine he has pneumonia. He seems to be doing all right and we hope we have already seen the worst and he continues to improve. Prayers and support are still greatly appreciated. Below are a few pictures from this evening when we were able to see him without the CPAP and he even opened his eyes to check everything out.
