Surgery #4 Complete
Noah's 4th major surgery was done yesterday to place a portacath under the skin on his shoulder into his internal jugular for easier circulatory access. The toughest part of the surgery according to the surgeon was gaining the IV access (which what the new port is there to do) to sedate Noah for the surgery itself. After an hour and many many needle sticks, they finally found one in his scalp and the rest of the surgery went smoothly. Thank you to all who have been praying for us as Nichole and Noah have been in the hospital over the past three weeks. Continue to pray that they both can be home soon.
