He came home Thursday! He's doing fine. He is still on oxygen. That was a little scary at first but it doesn't seem so bad now. He has to stay home for a while, which is normal. He does have plenty of Dr's appointments though. He has to see an opthalmologist, pediatrician, the pediatric surgeon that repaired his hernias, a home health nurse that comes to the house, and an occupational therapist. So, we'll be busy for a while, but it is so worth it to have him home!

No more tubes.

Today Noah was breathing completely on his own and didn't require the least bit of oxygen so they took the nasal-canula you see in the pictures below off of him. Now he doesn't have any more tubes on his face. He can breath and eat good without any of them now!

Excellent News!

Noah is doing great! He pulled out his breathing tube the night before last so they put him on the C-pap. Now he is on the canula. Today the nurse said he was so upset last night and today. So I was able to hold him when I got there. He was sound asleep in my arms. The nurse said he hasn't slept like that for her all day. She even had to give him some medicine to calm him down. I just called the night nurse and she said that he ate ALL of his last two feedings by mouth in less than 15 minutes! She said that and wanting to be held by mom was probably what was making him upset. Now he is sleeping well and not fussy. Yay! Daddy is in California now on a business trip so we both miss him terribly! But he will be back soon to see his little one doing so much better! :) Thank you ALL for your prayers!

Under the weather, again

Noah is still on the ventilator from the surgery. They tried to take him off a few times, but he couldn't make it. Today we found out the reason. He has pneumonia. His lungs are full of two different kinds of bacteria. So, they're giving him two antibiotics that will last at least seven days. Tomorrow they're going to put a pic-line in because IV's are not staying in very long. He seemed to be feeling better today than he did yesterday. It's really hard seeing him with a tube in his mouth. I can tell that he hates it.
I am glad though, that we know why he's having a hard time and now it can be treated. Thank you Jesus for medicine and doctors and nurses!
Please continue to pray for his strength! Love you all!

Like a champ!

Noah's surgery went well today. The doctor got him fixed up pretty quick and they used surgical glue to close him back up instead of stitches. He still seems a bit groggy from the anesthesia, but the nurse said he took it like a champ. Today Noah had surgery and tomorrow Jenny (Mom) is going to have surgery. She's finally getting her wisdom teeth taken out. It's been quite an eventful week.

Getting fixed up.

Thursday Noah is having surgery to fix his hernia. The doctor's don't seem incredibly worried about it, but they want to fix it before he gets to come home and so it doesn't get any worse. He's finally big enough and stable enough that they want to do surgery. If everything goes as well as expected they'll have him fixed up and after a few more weeks of recovery be able to come home!
