Hospital Update

Well, it seems that we are in a vicious cycle of clots and line infections. Noah was admitted on Saturday with pneumonia. Blood cultures were also done and they came back growing a Staph infection. His platelets are also quite low, so there may be a new clot brewing. His ultrasound today showed that his femoral clot from last admission is still there, but shrinking. Tomorrow he will have an ECHO done of his central line and heart to look for any new clots. We are hoping to be able to save his line, but it will depend on the results of the ECHO.

We are also going to try to restart some feeds, so tomorrow Noah will have his GJ tube put back in under flouroscopy. Hopefully he will be able to tolerate at least a small amount of feeds.

We are tired and discouraged and praying for a better solution to these reoccurring issues. Noah is in good spirits and looking much better today.

We are always praying for all of you. Especailly that Noah could keep this line, and also tolerate his feeds. We know the hospital stays get more and more difficult each time. may the Lord give you strength again to face tomorrow.
"Because HE lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone. Because I know He holds the future, and life is worth the living, just because He lives`. Our htoughts are with you. God holds Noah`s future i His hands. love mom

It must be very difficult to live each day as a "medical waiting game". May God keep holding you up as you face each hurdle in Noah's life. It's so comforting to know that God is holding him in His arms and giving him to you as a gift. He has a Perfect Plan even though it is hard to see what it is and often not how we would plan it.
