Jorden had a second X-ray yesterday to check on his intestine.  The blockage is clear, so from a surgery standpoint Jorden is ok.

However, his stomach cramping continues, as well as his trips to the restroom.  They tested him for CDiff, and the test came back positive. So that explains the ongoing cramping pains, etc.  Jorden started the medicine for that at 6pm last night.  and this was the first night he actually slept in between bathroom trips.

Jorden will be in the hospital a few more days to remain hydrated and recover.  He will need to be on the meds for this for two weeks.  But we can leave the hospital once they feel it is under control.  We then meet with Dr. Anderson on the 13th, and if all looks great, we can head home the weekend of the 15th or 16th.

Jorden was very sad and even angry yesterday about all of the pain and the feeling that he was not getting better; he prayed so hard to stop the pain and feel better. God heard his prayers and this morning he was singing in bed, ate some breakfast and just returned from walking the hospital floor three times. God is great.

Thank you for all your continued support and prayers.
