Things are a little crazy right now..

Hey everyone,
Well, if the CDH situation wasn't enough to worry about, Rob and Candice have another event happening that is pretty odd. I am not sure if I have a complete understanding of the whole situation because I just can't believe it, but here goes.

Like I posted earlier, the medical team at their hospital figured out they didn't have an ECMO machine available until after they started inducing Candice. They were told that a baby would soon be coming off ECMO so it was no problem and they would just let the labor continue on its own. It appears that plan B is now in progress.

There isn't an ECMO machine available after all so they are getting ready to Careflight Candice to Parkland hospital in Dallas which is where Kamryn is. Children's hospital is connected to Parkland so if Jackson does need ECMO it is just down the hall where Kamryn had her surgery. We texted Candice back to see when she was going and haven't heard back so she may be in the air now.

I promise to let all of you know the second we hear something more. We will be up at the hospital with Kamryn tomorrow so we can definitely give a first hand account of how things are going.

More to come...



  1. I'm so glad that you guys will be there with them, Shawn. God is in charge of this. I'll be praying!!

  2. Praying for a safe flight and delivery of Baby Jackson.

  3. That is so crazy, but a need precaution I suppose. Still praying little Jackson won't need ECMO. Maybe all of this is happening because the doctors that are best for Jackson are in Dallas? Just a thought.... hang in there guys!!!

    Thanks so much for the updates Shawn.


  4. How frightening! I hope the flight goes smoothly and baby Jackson won't need ECMO. It's good they are thinking ahead, though, and will be close to ECMO should he need it.
    Sending lots of prayers!

  5. Still praying for everyone involved: Jackson, Candice, Rob, doctors and medical staff, family and friends!!

  6. WOW! Awaiting the arrival and praying that all goes well!

  7. Praying that all goes well. Hoping that Baby Jackson make his arrival and that he won't need ECMO. Keeping my fingers crossed so that baby Jackson wins the CDH battle.
