An Oklahoma baby diagnosed with RSV and put on life support is now doing much better.

2 Works for You first told you about little Jakobi last week. His parents say they took the 2-month-old to the doctor three times before he was officially diagnosed.

His condition continued to get worse. They say he eventually stopped breathing and had to be put into a medically induced coma at a hospital in Dallas.

Well Jakobi's mom now says he is awake, out of the intensive care unit and could be going home soon.

Jakobi has spent 11 days in the hospital with his parents by his side.

They also have two other children, and need help with Jakobi's medical expenses.

They have started a GoFundMe account, if you would like to help.
