Update

Jaxon was seen by a kidney specialist and some g.i. specialists today. The kidney specialist thinks his low sodium levels are due to his diuretic and the vomitting. We're getting an ultrasound of his kidneys to check things out. The g.i. specialists didn't like how hard and fast Jax breaths so he'll be seen by respiratory. He's always breathed like that, and everytime we asked, they said it was okay. The g.i. specialists think that his heavy/fast breathing is contributing to his feeding problem. We'll see what everyone says...

I'm glad that he's able to be seen by the specialists. I'm sure they'll be able to help him.

I'm praying for your little guy.

I hope the specialists can figure out what is going on. Has his sodium been low before? I would ask them to check his adrenal glands too because they can affect the sodium levels. Hang in there--a few months from from now, this will all be a blur and both of your boys will be strong and healthy

I've been following your story for some time now and just wanted to wish you luck. You and your family have had a unbelievably rough journey. I hope you get some answers soon and it gets easier.

I haven't been able to get online much lately, but just got caught up on what's going on with Jax. I hope that you can figure out what is wrong. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

I will say an extra prayer for dear lil' Jaxon tonight. I hope you get answers or a solution to his problems soon. My heart goes out to you and your husband.

I just read your post from a few days ago in which you responded to a very ignorant reader. As you know, I have twins, but one passed away at 8 days old. Yes, I am thankful that I still have one of them, but that does not make it ok. I love my son and will forever mourn his loss. I will always look at his twin sister and wonder what he would be like. To the ignorant reader who posted that garbage, get a clue. An innocent baby cannot speak for themselves and it is up to his/her parents to do everything they can to give them a chance at life. Idiots like you do not have the right to judge people like us. As previously stated, kindly lose this web address.
