Just a very quick update. Noah is back in hospital. It's been just over a week now. He went in on Monday for another aspiration pneumonia. He was doing better and then yesterday he had a really bad aspiration. He refluxed, turned blue and went unconcious. His respiratory status was very unstable and there was talk about having to intubate again. After a few hours he started to settle down and today he is stable. He now has a new pneumonia from this aspiration and had a central line placed to give him TPN for now. Everyone is at a loss as to what to do for him to stop these aspirations. We had a team meeting planned for Friday and hopefully we can come up with a longer term solution for feeding and keeping his airway safe. I am living at the hospital these days, but will update again when I have a chance.
