A BIG scare........

We just had a scare about 30 minutes ago. After they had turned off his paralytic, his temperature started climbing, his heart rate climbed, and his blood pressure started dropping. They a whole bunch of doctors came rushing in. They had restarted the paralytic and gave him a bolus of a blood product to help lower his heart rate which was in the 190's. They stood around him to watch how his numbers reacted. His blood pressure kept falling (40s/30s) and his heart rate started dropping quickly. A crash cart was brought in and a whole lot of other doctors and nurses. They had to do chest compressions for about 45 seconds. They turned his milrinon (a heart function med) back up and then he became stable again. They are keeping a close watch on him today. They are letting him recover from this traumatic episode and will not be weening anything today, so he is back to his original med settings and his cooling blanket has been turned back on. If he does good over night, they may possible turn off his paralytic tomorrow. Please continue to pray for Noah's recovery. Even though Noah did extremely well during his surgery, his repair was very complicated and is going to need more time to recover. Needless to say, Aaron and I will not be venturing out anytime soon. Noah is proving, once again, that he likes to do things on his own timing and does not like to be pushed.

Dear God- Plz strengthen Noah and his heart> Continue to provide wisdom and guidance for the Md's, nurses, Aaron & Debi. Continue to give this little boy a fighting attitude for overcoming this difficulty! Keep your healing hand on him. Continue to give Aaron & Debi holy peace and holy endurance. Stretch the minutes of Debi & Aaron's limited sleep so they are refreshed and alert.

We pray all of this in Jesus Holy and healing name- Amen!

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...
