Noah had a relatively good day today. His ECMO dressing had started pooling around the seams and seeping out the edges a little more today, so they actually went back in his chest to explore. They cleaned out a LOT of clots in the chest and chest tubes and now his chest tubes are draining more efficiently. His chest is now a little more closed after the cleaning. They have started slowly warming him about an hour and a half ago. The goal is for tomorrow morning, to turn off his paralytic. He is still on a lot of pain and sedation control, so he should not move as much. They are also going to try weening down his support tomorrow afternoon some time. He has behaved nicely today :)

Good night! New update will be later in the afternoon tomorrow. There will most likely NOT be a morning update.

Thanks for the updates Debi! Hope you guys had fun on your time out tonight.
So glad to hear he's progressing slow and steady! Still praying continually, and we hope you really enjoy the time with the family you guys have coming to town.
We'll be praying tomorrow morning things go smoothly with the weaning.

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...
