Heart cath update... We have somewhat heavy hearts today...

Noah did very well during his heart cath today. Thank you for praying for his safety and for us. The news we got is not what we were "wanting" to hear but at least we now have some answers. This whole time they were seeing just 2 residual VSD's but during the cath, they found a third hole. Dr. Mitchell said it was not ideal to repair with the cath procedure. He has a 2 to 1 shunt, meaning that the blood is going to his lungs twice the amount that is going to the rest of his body, creating high pressures in his lungs and making the right side of his heart work twice as much as the left. So this means, that Noah is going to need another open heart surgery to close those holes. He is now scheduled to this surgery on Wednesday next week. It will be another all-day surgery. They believe that these VSD's are what are contributing to his liver and pancreas enzymes being elevated. So we are now on the third floor again.. the Cardiac ICU.
I think I am going to end this update for now... I need to process this and pray.

So... Noah's new mailing address will be:

Chilrdrens Hospital of Wisconsin
c/o Noah Solomon room # W322
9000 W. Wisconsin Ave
Wauwatosa, WI 53226

I came across your blogs through somebody on one of my friends. I sat and erad every single blog update word for word from the very first one and they have put me in tears. I cannot imagine the pain you must have endured throughout all of this. I continue to pray for you everyday and (since I'm native american) ask the creator to guide your family through and to keep little Noah strong. Always think positive, you have a huge support system and everyone is sending thousands of prayers out for you daily. Please keep us updated. I will always continue to keep praying for you and your family. <3

I am praying that God continues to strengthen Noah's body over the next several days in preparation for this surgery. I know it's a huge thing for him to have to go through again, but I believe that this will allow his heart, lungs, liver, pancreas and gut to now begin the process of recovery. I am also praying that you and Aaron have never-ending strength, endurance and unfailing faith. Lastly, I am praying for Dr. Mitchell and the anesthesia team that will take care of Noah on Wednesday, as well as the ICU team that follows his progress from then on that they will have wisdom and insight in everything they do for him.

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...
