{Jensen Family Update}

Well, we arrived to Arizona safely... Bronson was a champ in the car!! We could not have asked for a better baby!!

Our poor little man started to get sick on the way here though... we were not sure what was wrong but we thought it might have been a cold. As we started to get moved in and life began to get more crazy we noticed he was throwing up ALOT. It really started to scare all of us so we called first thing Monday morning to see if we could move his appointment up a day and get him in ASAP. The Dr's office was great to get us in right away. Bronson got checked out by the Dr and weighed... he still was not back to his birth weight. The Dr. sent us home with recommendations to get this little guy to eat better. However, his first feeding after we got back from the Dr. he threw up again!! We called him right away and he sent us to the Pediatric ER. We got there at about 1p.m. and finally by about 6 or 7 we were admitted to the hospital. They were very concerned about his weight gain and his hydration levels. So we spent the whole week in the hospital trying to get this little guy better and to hold down his food.

We were able to find out that he has GERD (acid reflux). We now have him on medication to help control his reflux. Our little man is still a champ.. he is doing so well!! We are home now just trying to get our life in order and the house organized! He is finally starting to put on some weight. We could not be more happy with his progress.... we love him so much and can't stand to see him not feeling well!!

It was heartbreaking for us to see him go through all of this. But through everything we feel this move has been a huge blessing for our family... we have the most wonderful Pediatrician and we had an amazing Childrens Hospital to help Bronson get back to normal. Things always work out the way they are supposed to. We could not believe that more!

Nick had his first official interview (3rd total with this company) and it went really well. We are waiting to get through the holiday weekend to hear back from them. We are hoping for the best and I know he did an amazing job in the interview! He has several more contacts that he will be getting intouch with as well.

For being locked up in a hospital for the whole first week we were here we are getting adjusted and loving our new area. Now that we are home and Bronson is doing well it is time to start learning our surroundings!!

Thank you everyone who helped us with our move!! You all were amazing and we could not have done it without you!! We miss everyone in Utah already!! Don't forget about us just because we moved!! If you ever want a warmer climate we have a place in sunny AZ for you to stay!!

Oh my goodness! I am so glad everything turned out ok for Bronson! It is always super stressful when a baby is sick...I can't imagine going through all that on top of the move. Way to hang in there.

I'm glad he's doing so much better! You probably don't want to see a hospital again for a really long time!! I'm glad you found time to do a post...now I need to.

I can't wait to see you guys. Only a couple more weeks!
