It is with a heavy heart that I update all of you on Jackson's condition today. Jackson has not made good progress overnight and the medical staff has let Candice and Rob know that Jackson won't be able to overcome the hypertension. Around 5:00am, his body gave signs that it just couldn't handle the situation any longer. While his heart and lungs appear to be stable, the stress on his body is just too much. They estimate he has probably around 8 hours until he will leave this amazing couple and truly be at peace. Rob and Candice find some comfort right now as they know Rob's father is awaiting Jackson's arrival with open arms in heaven.
Jackson is not in any pain right now and they are preparing him for Rob and Candice to spend time with him this afternoon. Stef and I are heading up to the hospital in just a little bit to be with them.
Please pray for this dear family that they find the strength to endure this afternoon and the days, months, and years ahead of them without their precious Jackson. Please also pray for Jackson that he has a peaceful transition from this world to a much better place in heaven.
