In Hospital

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.

Nichole, I was just praying for you and Brad and Noah and was given a picture of Jesus holding Noah. The Dr. stood around not knowing what to do, but Jesus was there in the midst, holding Noah and reaching his arms out to your guys, to hold you too. May Jesus be so real to you today. May you rest in his arms, knowing he is holding little Noah and you too. May your strength come from Him. May his peace wash over you as you don't know what to do next. I'm praying that you are able to keep trusting God and let Him carry you through the moments that make up your day.
love Ramona

Nichole,

I'm truly thinking about you guys. I was just wondering about you guys the other day. I saw that you didn't update in a while, so I got to wondering about Noah. I'm so sorry to hear that Noah is back in the hospital, but I'm glad he's doing better today. I'm praying for you and your family. I sure hope Noah goes home soon. Please give him a big hug and a nice big kiss on the cheek for me ;-).

Take care and God bless!

~Rissa (thanks for updating)!

hi everyone, this is Nichole's mom. Nichole and Noah are sitll in hospital. Noah has been on the TPN line since the beginning of October.They willl not do any surgery, because of the risk involved. Noah does well on the TPN but he can't be on that long term. They are hoping to introdice his feeds again soon, and see how he does. At this point they have no other options for Noah. Pray for them, and especially for the rest of the family.

Hi Family,

Thanks for the update. I really appreciate it. I've been thinking about them since I've read the post about Noah being in the hospital. I'm praying for the family. Please let her know that I'm thinking about them. Again, thanks for the update!

Take care and God bless!

i will try every now and then to update, if Nichole doesn'. they are looking at possibly taking noah off the TPN for 6 hours a day, which would give nichole an opportunity to come home for about 4 1/2 hours a day with him. the ride to the hospital takes 45 minutes. the kids at home reallyneed her to be home..noah's granny

Nichole and Brad,
It was wonderful to get to visit with you guys yesterday. I just can't stop thinking about how tired you must be (tired doesn't sum it all up) by now and am lifting you up to the One who can sustain you. Noah is so precious. Tristan keeps talking about him and is asking if he can come back again today. I hop0e Boo at the Zoo was a relaxing break and that you were able to peacefully enjoy being away from the hospital for a bit. May you continue to trust that God is with you.
love Ramona
