Yesterday we celebrated Jack's one month Birthday. We still can't believe all that he has experienced in his short little life. Yesterday they removed the wires that were used in case his heart needed to be paced. We are anxiously waiting the return of Dr. Hawkins, who is out of town. It is a little worrisome to have the man who knows everything about his heart so far away, however, Jack needed a few more days to get ready for his surgery. We hope that tomorrow will be the third day in a row that his blood cultures will be negative. If so, we can be fairly confident that the antibiotics have been effective in getting rid of the infection he's been dealing with. He has come a long way.
