We are cautiously optimistic as Jack condition has improved. We can't describe how we feel for all of you who have been so concerned for Jack recently. I mentioned yesterday that soon after we held Jack he started to pee. His urine output has been consistent since then and has shown remarkable improvement. His head and chest measurements are 1.5 centimeters less than they were yesterday and he is being ventilated with much less effort. The treatment hasn't been changed during the past two days- only the removal of medicines he appears to no longer need. We are grateful to have climbed that mountain and are newly invigorated for the bumps that lay ahead.
