Yay!!!!!!

I am almost speechless today, as I look at my peaceful, sleeping baby! :) Noah was extubated around noon today. He did GREAT! He only coughed as they pulled out the tube and immediately put his binky in his mouth. He did not even cry! God is so good, all the time! Around 7pm, I held him for the first time in almost 4 WEEKS! As SOON as I got him in my arms and sat in the rocker, he fell asleep and we had some MUCH needed snuggle time! :) Tomorrow they will try starting his feeds again and work him up to full feeds. Then the next step will be weening him off the high flow and O2. Then we should be close to being on our way out the door! Praise God for all he is doing with our family! I have not felt this peaceful in a while and it feels good! Thank you everyone for your love prayers and support while we are on this bumpy ride! Please continue to lift Noah up as he gets stronger! Thank you!!!

About Me

My photo
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...

He is getting so BIG!!!!
