Noah has a BIG day tomorrow morning!

Tomorrow, they are planning on taking out the breathing tube. If he has a great night, they will most likely be pulling the tube first thing in the morning.
Noah received another blood transfusion this afternoon because his blood count was a little low. He has had a few agitation episodes today and his belly has been really distended, They took an x-ray of his abdomen and it showed quite a build up of gas in his gut.. poor buddy. We stopped his feeds and that seems to be helping. He has also been getting suppositories and gas drops today. Over all, he looks good! He still has pneumonia, but that seems to be under control. Right now, he is kicking his feet trying to stay awake! Silly boy! We even got to see him smile! :)
I am staying at the hospital tonight and Aaron is going back to the hotel. I want to make sure I am here in the early morning for any changes.
Please, specifically pray for Noah's safety tomorrow. For Noah to be strong enough to breathe easy on his own. Pray for his belly, that his body will continue to pass the gas that is building up and causing him so much discomfort. Pray for a peace of mind for Aaron and I, as it is very scary for us to see Noah struggle so much. Of course, we can all pray for what we want to happen with Noah, but we must understand that God is in control. Only God's time is the right time. And if it is Gods time for Noah to really excel forward tomorrow, then I pray that it will be evident the second that tube comes out! If it is still not Gods timing, then I pray he will keep Noah safe until it is.
Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this and pray for our sweet boy!
Update to come in the morning after rounds! Good night!!

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...
