Jacob has had a fantastic recovery, and even though it's been almost 6 weeks he still has a long way to go to be completely recovered.  We  have to make sure he doesn't have a direct blow to his chest and also make sure that he is not around anyone that is sick.  Yesterday we ventured outside again since it was so warm (I had a hoodie on him of course) and played some baseball, threw some frisbee and jumped on the trampoline believe it or not.  Below is a short video of the "triumphant jump".

We spent about 3 hours outside playing and he loved it!  We will be going back to Cincinnati on Wednesday (April 6th) for a post-op check up.  Hopefully we will get the all clear and he can go back and visit his buddies and the babysitters.  He really misses them.  Please continue to pray for Jacob as he still has a very long road ahead of him even though the surgeries are finished.  He will fight a life long battle with infection, weight gain, and if something goes wrong possibly another heart surgery which could be a heart transplant.  Right now though he has more energy than he knows what to do with!  Thank you all for the prayers and thoughts for Jacob and our family.
