A Little New News

Jackson went for his check-up yesterday, to get cleared for surgery. His pediatrician wanted to do some blood work (just in case) She's afraid he has immune problems or growth hormone problems, etc etc. So on Monday we'll get results from that, results from his gut biopsy, and his head gunk culture. That should be an interesting day. He ped. said that his white blood count is elevated (Rochelle you might understand what that means) His head is still swelling more, and he still has a fever. She was wanting us to go back to the E.R. last night. But after talking to Jeremy then the craniofacial surgeon (that's doing his surgery) They decided that we should go to see him today (Saturday) at 10:30. Then the surgeon will decided what to do. So we could go into surgery today.

We cut the babies hair last night to see his head better and so the doctor could see it better. he woke up today with his left eye also most swollen shut. I wish I could get our new camera to download picture so you all could see how horrible my little man looks:)

I think I'm pulling for surgery today. I feel the sooner the better. I love you all.

White blood cells (leukocytes) help fight infection in your body.
Causes of a high white blood cell count include:

Use of certain medications, such as corticosteroids, antibiotics or anti-seizure drugs
Severe physical or emotional stress
Chronic bone marrow diseases such as a myeloproliferative disorder
Acute or chronic leukemia
Tissue damage, such as from burns
