Today, they are not going to change much on his drips. I heard they will add some sort of monitor to the ventilator... it goes down his nose and into his esophagus and measures his diaphragm activity.
Yesterday was an AWESOME day! Noah opened his eyes for us!!!!! He even tried to lift his hand to touch my face. PRAISE GOD!!!!
Noah's belly is still distended and he has no bowel sounds. But as they ween down his drips, we should start hearing movement. His kidneys are improving and he is putting out a lot of urine! Yesterday he ended up being negative in his fluid balance because he had been urinating a lot.
Later today, they might ween down his fentanyl again. He is starting to breath over the vent which is what they want him to do.
So please continue to pray for his kidneys. For his belly to go down in size and for his bowels to wake up and start moving again so we can start feeding him. For his brain function, him waking up and opening his eyes and reaching for us are all good signs, but we are not out of the woods yet. pray for whatever infection is in his body, to leave... he has had an almost constant fever for the past few days.
The swelling on his eyeball has returned to normal! Thank you for this answered prayer! The swelling on his arms, hands and legs and feet have gone down significantly! He looks a lot more like himself :D

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...
