Prayer Request

Just wanted to send out a prayer request for my little grandson Jackson. He woke up yesterday in extreme pain in his groin area. After spending all morning at his doctor's office and being sent for blood work and MRI's, it was decided to send him to Children's Hospital in Birmingham. Hubby drove Jackson and his mom and I followed with Jackson's dad after we picked up Taylor at school. Fortunately, my son and his family live in Birmingham so David, Taylor and I spent the night there. I'm actually sending this from Shane's house this morning. After much blood work, an IV being put in, and a long night, Don just called and they are releasing Jackson to go home! He is up and around and acting like his old self, but they still don't know what happened. Please keep Jackson in your prayers for a full recovery.

And let me just say, if I ever had any doubt before about Children's Hospital (which I didn't) that is the greatest place you could ever be with a sick child. We have always supported Children's Hospital and the Children's Miracle Network in honor of our three grandchildren, and we will certainly keep supporting them in the future. If you ever need a great cause to contribute to, I would highly recommend these programs.

I will keep Jackson in my prayers. It is so scary when your child is in pain and you don't know why.. They need to find out why, sometimes doctors are so dismissive.

Judy,
Sending up prayers for sweet Jackson! Hopefully this was a one time deal. I couldn't agree more as a parent of two girls who have graced the doors and a neighbor of a child being treated for leukemia at Children's here in Atlanta...they are the absolute real deal...the very best!!

So glad Jackson is better!!! Children's is a wonderful hospital. We always included as much experience at Children's as we could when I was teaching. It is a blessing to have in our area. Will say a prayer for Jackson's continued health.

I will hold Jackson in prayer as well as your family. It's so difficult to see a little one ill. I'm very grateful that you were able to take him to such a wonderful hospital.

So good to hear Jackson is okay. Praying for a full recovery and no recurrence of the problem.

We are supporters of St Louis Children's Hospital and agree, a wonderful cause to support.

I hope Jackson is well, I wish I had known earlier he was here at Children's I would have come quick as a wink! It is a fantastic hospital and I am so thankful Jackson is better. We will continue to lift him up! Be well sweet friend.
