A confusing and frustrating day so far...

Morning rounds: Noah still has pneumonia. They are keeping him on antibiotics. He is on full feeds and is tolerating them just fine. He is still having difficulties weening the ventilator down, so please continue prayers for his respiratory status. His abdomen is still distended and that could be causing his respiratory failure so they will be looking into that. The doctor on today, seamed concerned that this surgery didn't really do any good for him. His chest x-rays are still not improving much. This could be due to a leak is his breathing tube. We don't really know if he will be ready for extubation tomorrow.
I really feel mentally and emotionally and spiritually exhausted. Noah should be learning new "baby things" and learning how to crawl, and play freely. I am so upset. Today I have a million questions running through my mind... not necessarily for the doctors either. Today is just not a good day for me.

Debi, know that God is with you and He will strengthen you when you get faint, He will up hold you in His mighty hand, and He will never leave you nor forsake you. He loves you and Noah and all your family so much. I will bombard heavens gates with petions on Noahs behalf. When you are with Noah, speak words of healing over his little body, call that which is not,as though it is. Claim Gods word on over him. Claim him as Gods property and satan has no dominion over him. And when you get weak hang on to Jesus, because you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. God Bless you.

The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.

Zephaniah 3:17

Tough days are bound to come. It's so hard to wait for things to get better. As you wait, picture God standing over you, rejoicing and singing and quieting you with His love.

In Prayer, Karina

About Me

Welcome to Noah's blog! We thank you for following us on our God-led journey and thank you for all your thoughts and prayers! Noah was born June 22, 2009 with many anatomical birth defects and underwent his first major surgery when he was just 4 days old. He has been in and out of the hospital since day one and has had a total of 4 major surgeries to date, with his latest one being the most extreme and difficult - his first open heart surgery on November 4 and December 17th, 2010. He is a warrior and this is his journey...
