Home and All Is Well!

We arrived home from our Florida trip yesterday evening. Our 2 weeks there were a wonderful much needed break for everyone. Everything went so smoothly and Noah did great! He loved the travelling and all the sights and sounds of Disneyworld. We spent the first week in Orlando (most of our days at Disneyworld and 1 day at Seaworld) which was very busy, but lots of fun with the kids. We were able to get a Guest Assistance Pass for Disney which allowed us to use Noah's stroller as a wheelchair. This gave us special seating at the shows and we were able to skip alot of the lines for the rides, which was a huge help!! The sun and warm humid air was great for Noah's health, probably the best thing we could have done for him. His RSV cleared up completely and his breathing was so good. I think we'll have to make this an annual tradition (for medicinal purposes of course!). We are still having issues with his tube sight, but that seems to always be an ongoing battle.

We spent the second week at Daytona Beach which was much more relaxing. We had some great beaching weather and Noah even got a bit of a tan on his face.

He is slowly gaining weight again and is just shy of 10lbs now (9lbs 14oz). Although the time went by far too quickly, it is good to be home again. We are so thankful that we were able to take this trip together and we thank everyone for their many prayers. For it is truly a miracle that we were able to go.

Welcome back! I praise God with you for the miracle of being able to go on this trip and for all the wonderful memories you have of the things you did and saw. What a great way to spend time as a family celebrating not being in the hospital!
Personally I think we Canadians could all use a trip south every winter for midicinal purposes (But the farthest south we can get on Canadian soil is basically where I am already!). Looking at your pictures reminds me how ready I am for a holiday and can only imagine how perfectly timed this ended up being for your family.
We'll continue to pray that Noah can stay healthy in his home!
love Ramona

I'm so glad that you guys are back safe and everyone is doing well. It's always good to hear when Noah is doing well. Seems like he really needed this trip. It's good to know that he felt good the entire time. Nichole..I missed you so much while you were gone. I checked Noah's site every night for an update, but I understand that you guys were having fun in the sun. I love all the cool pictures. You have a beautiful family. Please kiss my buddy for me.

Take care and God bless! to Karson

You don't know me, but I often cruise by your blog (I got the link from Jamie). It's so awesome that you were able to take the kids on a trip! I never got to go as a kid, but definitly want to take my kids some day! Praise God that Noah did well, and some things cleared up for him! Memories are a wonderful thing, cherish them always!
God Bless!
