 Crawfish Boil

I'm pretty sure this was a first for Rick and me. It recently came down at Jared and Jenna's house. Rick and I didn't actually eat the crawfish. He ate sausage, and I ate my weight in shrimp! I've never seen so much food. 

Fun time!

Jonah and Baseball 

Just a cute pic of Jonah that I snapped on my phone after a big win in a tournament. This is his first year to play baseball. So glad he is learning and enjoying it!

Jackson's Kidney Issue

During Jenna's pregnancy, she found out that one of Jackson's kidneys was enlarged. Throughout the remainder of her pregnancy, she was monitored by her doctor as well as a high risk doctor.

Marilyn and I went down on Monday, May 15, to go with Jenna to take him for three appointments including two scans and his pediatrician. Jackson was diagnosed has having Vesicoureteral Reflux (VUR). For short, I just call it kidney reflux of the right kidney. I had to research it because I did not know anything about it.

Today, Jenna took him to see the pediatric urologist. The specialist explained everything and thought it was in Jackson's best interest to be put on a very low dose of an antibiotic to prevent UTIs. Although this was not desirable, the doctor said for now that option is better than perhaps having to do surgery.

He will have new scans in two months.

(These are a couple of photos from Marilyn's photo shoot she did while we were there.)

Jackson's First Week

As journaled in my last post, Jackson was born on Tuesday, May 2; they went home of Wednesday. On Thursday, Friday, and Monday, Jenna and I took him to the pediatrician's office just so they could monitor his weight and make sure he did not develop jaundice (which he did not). He was doing great. Rick and I came home last night after being at Joe Pool for over three weeks. Such a great setup for us being so close to their house!

May 2 and Arrival of Jackson Joseph

Jenna was induced today. It was such a special time with the family all gathered together waiting to welcome a new little one to the family.

Jackson Joseph arrived at 1:47 p.m. He weighed 7 lbs. 11 oz. and was 21 inches long. Perfection!

Dad, Mom, and big sister are doing great. Jared and Jenna are now "Hermann family - party of four!"

Waiting on Jackson

Today Jenna worked from home and also managed to get a few errands accomplished. We also went to see her doctor. Tomorrow is the day!  We can't wait to meet Jackson!
