URGENT!!!!!!!!! NOAH IS BEING CUT OPEN!!!!!!!!!! WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. HIS HEARTRATE DROPPED AND BP DROPPED. THEY WERE DOING COMPRESSIONS. PLEASE PRAY!

UPDATE: THEY HAVE CUT HIM OPEN RIGHT THERE IN HIS ROOM. THEY ARE PUTTING HIM ON THE ECMO MACHINE (basically bypass) WE STILL DO NOT WHAT CAUSED HIM TO GO INTO DISSTRESS.


UPDATE: One person is doing compressions directly on his heart, one is bagging him to give him O2 to his body and his brain, and Dr. Mitchel is hooking up the canulas from the ECMO to his heart. **I am udating my status for now. when everything is done, I will do one big update on the blog** Please share this info.

ALSO: They will not know how his brain was effected until a day or 2 from now. So please pray that we still have the same Noah when he is healed!

UPDATE: Noah is now on ECMO, and is stabilized. The ECMO is doing most of the pumping, allowing his heart to relax, and they have added a pacer to establish the proper rhythm so that the muscle gets used to contracting. Noah received compressions and bagging for over an hour. Because of this, there is a risk of stroke and organ deprivation. They are doing an echo now to confirm the VSD is still intact, and will do tests tomorrow to verify the brain function. We wont know for certain until Noah wakes up whether brain function is ok, but Dr. Mitchell spoke with us, and was extremely optimistic about Noah's prognosis. Please pray that Noah's brain and organs are ok. We are belieiving that God wants Noah to tell us his story some day! Tonight there will be a nurse in the room constantly to monitor Noah's condition, and there will be a constant rotation of techs for the ECMO machine until he is off it. Dr. Mitchell's opinion was that when they were doing suction to clear Noah's lungs the new pulmonary artery clamped down, making the back pressure on his right ventricle very high. Since up to this point the right ventricle has not had to function on its own (due to the VSD) it was a shock, and the RV slowed and lost pressure.

Oh Debi & Aaron, Our hearts are pouring out to The Lord on Noah's behalf. We praise Him along with you for what He's accomplished tonight, and pray He continues to restore your precious baby boy. Thank you for the updates and phone calls and texts you both send out to all of us keeping up on Noah, so that we can not only pray for specific healing but also PRAISE him for these wonderful life saving miracles as they happen. <3 Our hearts are with you, and we pray the Peace of The Lord will rest with you both tonight as you wait.

For Noah I will pray, for Mom & Dad I will pray, for your family I will pray. I do not know you but I know the love parents have for their children. So I will ask of God to allow Noah to have the strength to keep fighting. I ask that he gives you & your family the good new you've been waiting to hear.

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...
