12 hours post-op

Noah is doing great! He had a little bleeding last night when he came back from surgery... there are some small residual holes around the VSD patch that will eventually close on their own in a couple of days. The bleeding has slowed down and is starting to clear up. I am amazed at how well he looks this morning... For being in the OR for 12 hours yesterday, he should be VERY swollen, but he is not. Just a little puffy is all. They have already turned off his paralytic drip so by the end of today he should be able to move a little bit. He is on all the heart function meds until they are for certain his heart is doing well on its own. He has a fever but that is expected so they are giving him Tylenol and they have him on a cooling blanket.
Aaron and I did not go to sleep until around 1am and then had to wake up at 4am for x-ray. We are still tired and are trying to sleep but it is hard to. The hospital air is so dry that both Aaron and I woke up with dry lungs. We are going to go to the mall later after lunch to go to Build-A-Bear to make Noah the Heart Patch Bear! We are going to call him patches and give him a "stuff-day" of November 4, 2010! :)

I am still so "fired-up" for you guys. Praise the Lord that Noah's surgery went so well. Jesus is so good. Will continue to pray hard for Noah and you guys (to get sleep especially). HE is stronger even when we aren't.

love you guys

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...
