It is a little overwhelming having to decide what the first post on our blog should include. Considering I have done very little in the way of documenting the lives of our boys in any formal sense does not help. I'm thinking about all the baby book items accumulating in a storage box, and all the photos, keepsakes, cards, and snippets of information written on scrap paper floating around the house. I could share so many things, but I will keep it short and simple by sharing some recent video clips of our active little guys. Enjoy!
Welcome to the Jones family blog. Jeremy and I have been married ten years. In September 2008 our boys, Donnie and David, were born. Join us on our journey as we grow, change, and endeavor to bring David to recovery.
David is the toughest guy I know. He was born healthy, loud and screaming six minutes after his brother. On his third day of life, he aspirated while in the NICU and went without oxygen for a significant amount of time.
His diagnosis is Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy. He has a tracheostomy because his vocal cords are paralyzed, making breathing extremely difficult. He also has a feeding tube as his injury has left him unable to swallow.
We are so proud of our "Bids" and truly appreciate your continued thoughts and prayers for his recovery.
