HAPPY DANCE!!!!

Last night, my little family had the BEST sleep in nearly 4 1/2 months! Why you ask? BECAUSE WE ARE HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday morning, I waited with MUCH anticipation for rounds. During rounds, they asked, "Does he have a fever?" - nope, "Is he tolerating his feeds?" - YUP! "Are you ready?" - SO READY!, "Okay, let's get you out of here!" - (Everyone's reaction)YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr Mitchell, Noah's CV surgeon, came in to celebrate the great news with us. I signed the discharge papers, and we were ON OUR WAY! Let me tell you though, that morning before rounds took FOREVER!

SO... Noah is now home. Loving it too! He was a little cranky and very tired when we got home... only wanted me to hold him. But now, I think he realizes that no one here is going to bug him or poke him or prod him at all hours, day and night. He is LOVING his cousins and his cousins are very excited and happy to have "their baby" back. It is so sweet to watch them play with each other. Noah's strength and endurance isn't back to what it was before he was admitted... the boys are used to him rolling all over the place and sitting up on his own so it has been a little confusing to them as to why he is just laying there and barely rolling to his sides. But they love him and play with him just the same :) Benjamin even told me that he feels bad for Noah. I asked him why and he told me that he feels bad that he still has doctors. I told him that some day he won't need to see the doctors anymore. Then he said, "I am happy he is home."

Jonas is way excited too. Aunt Amanda was holding Noah while he was sleeping and Jonas comes over and sits on the arm of the couch and starts petting Noah's head. Then he said, "I just love Noah" and then he laid his head on his. So sweet :) I love how they love each other... it melts my heart.

Thank you all for your continued prayers. Please continue to pray for Noah, as he still has some recovery and rehab to go through. Prayers to keep us at home and healthy! And even though we ARE home, I will still update his blog once a week to keep you updated on his progress and how happy his life is :)

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...
