NICU


"'For I know the plans I have for you' , declares the Lord. 'Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'".

Noah spent 4 weeks in NICU at Children's Hospital. He was put on a ventilator on day 2 because of breathing difficulties. He had a bronchoscopy done and the ENT found that Noah has Pierre Robin Sequencing (meaning he
has an enlarged tongue in the back and a small lower jaw causing breathing issues). The doctors thought he would need a trach to breathe, but Noah continued to amaze them. He coughed out his tube and has been breathing on his own ever since!


We were finally able to hold Noah when he was 1 week old!


His first tub bath. He is so tiny he fit right into the bowl!!
