Sunday Feb 22

Just wanted to give you all a quick update before we called it a night.

Jameson was about the same today. He is still on the ventilator and they have not been able to reduce the help it's giving. Actually they had to increase it's help yesterday and today. He is still in what I call a "drug induced coma-like state" (not sure what the doctors would actually call it). He hasn't opened his eyes since Thursday. They do this so his body will rest. He is still very swollen from the drugs and fluids and it may take up to a week to for his body to return to it's normal size. The doctors hinted today that we will most likely be in the hospital for at least another week if not more. Tests showed today that he does have MRSA and they are treating that with antibiotics through his central line. We are waiting to see if it's blood born or just topical. He is still in critical condition!

One of the hardest things about this is not being able to hold him. Since he has so many machines hooked up to him we are not able to move him at all for obvious reasons. It's so sad to see him just laying there motionless.

Please pray that as the doctors slowly reduce Jameson's dependence on the ventilator and drugs that he will respond positively and not go into shock which causes his heart rate to sky rocket and his breathing to rapidly increase. His body needs to be strong enough to handle the reduction and at this point it's not.

Thank you.

This is my (Rebecca) first time on your blog. I have never seen this sweet baby that we have been praying for. Alex has told me how precious he is and how happy he is. You have our hearts. We are holding you tightly in prayer. I hope you can feel all of the love that we are sending your way. If only we could take away some of the pain. I wish there was just some way that we could do that for you. We are praying for Jameson. I know he is in the best hands. I am praying today for you for that renewed strength that God has promised to give daily and without measure. I know He will do it. He loves you and he chose you to be Jameson's parents. Jameson is a very special little boy and very blessed to be in such a loving and faithful family. We are waiting expectantly on our Jehovah Raffa to completely heal Jameson!
Love,
The McKee Family

Hey Guys!

I heard from Kris about Jameson's struggle, and rest assured, you ALL have been in my prayers daily. If there is ANYTHING I can do for you (bring boys home to you, bring food, get homework) please don't hesitate one bit to call me. Jesus is with Jameson, just as he was with Gracyn in her darkest times. He is with you & Todd, and I know you feel His almighty presence. God Bless you all, and we'll keep praying!

We love you!
