Surgery Tonight

Noah is having his surgery tonight to remove his internal port. It was found to be the host of a significant blood clot and had to be removed as soon as possible. Noah also had a bone scan today and it is suspected that he has a serious infection in his left tibia as well.

What this means in a treatment perspective as far as we know tonight is removal of his port, insertion of a femoral line for IV access, and subcutaneous injections of anti-coagulants for at least three months to go along with his 6 week regiment of IV antibiotics.

Please pray for health and recovery and that we can do many of these treatments at home in the near future along with his other treatments.
