Jacob Rider

Just to let you guys know that Jacob was born on feb 14th, he had to be life flighted out from dogde city ks to wichita ks the same day, we're not sure how long we will be here (every day is a step forward but it also can be a step back) and today was one of them.....

That doesn't sound good :( I'll say a really big prayer for little Jacob. Is there anything I can do?
