And so it continues...

Noah has been home just over a week now. He finished his IV antibiotics on Friday, so now we have started a prophylactic broad spectrum antibiotic (Septra) once a day through his GJ tube. Our hope is that this will help prevent some of these constant reoccuring infections. But this evening he is already running a low grade fever and coughing up lots of junk. Praying it doesn't turn into anything serious. Although already in my mind I am planning out how the week will go if he ends up in hospital. I just feel tired thinking about another possible admission. I think emotionally, each time gets tougher than the last. And yet, Noah is so worth it all and I would do it all a thousand times over just to have him in our lives. In the midst of the struggle of accepting that this constant upheaval from home to hospital is our life, comes great blessings in our beautiful son.

And so our precarious life continues...


"Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all--he is the greatest."
Luke 9:48

Hi family! Sorry to hear about the low grade fever. Praying that it's nothing serious and that Noah isn't admitted again.

May God continue to bless you all!

It all sounds exhausting, but you're right that Noah makes it all worth it. I hope that you are still at home when you read this. I'll be praying for you guys today!

You guys... I don't even know what to comment on anymore. I have been trying to get my computer to let me comment on the post about the kitten- I had to laugh at Noah alone with the cat! But, since I am finally able to comment, and you have a new post, let me add that I am praying for you guys. I hope you get to stay home for longer yet and that Noah's fever goes away.

Would you mind if I linked to your site from my blog? Sent a few people your way to add to the prayers?
