This is Brad writing to give an update on Noah and Nichole. Please continue to pray for Nichole and Noah as they have spent a lot of time in the hospital over the past while and Kailyn, Joshua, and I would love to have them home soon.
Noah is doing very well with his temporary femoral line and even ventures down to the hospital play room on a regular basis. Both he and Nichole are a great testimony to those at the hospital and we are thankful for those opportunities.
Kailyn and Joshua are learning a lot about hospital life and learning valuable lessons in patience and appreciating everyday the value of health and life. It is sometimes too easy to see the not so great side of being in the hospital for hundreds of days like Nichole has been. We shouldn't forget the miracle that Noah is, and the fact that we were told that he would never even live. Not only is he living, but loving life. God is good and knows what he is doing.
I also want to remind everyone what an awesome wife and mother Nichole is. She has spent over 225 days in the hospital with Noah over the past year. Although some people consider this routine and "normal" already, each day is as hard as the first and each night on the chair is as uncomfortable as they all are. I love Nichole and everything she does to be there for Noah and for the record...she never complains about the circumstances around it. I appreciate her very much!
There is a possibility of Noah being discharged next week if all goes well, so please pray that this can happen.
