Faith of a Child

A good day for Noah today. No weaning on the morphine today as he is still quite jittery and not tolerating the weaning very well. I don't mind the pace at all and I'm happy to go as slow with the weaning as we possibly can. I don't want him to have to feel any discomfort from all of this. We switched his medazolam infusion to scheduled doses of lorazepam instead, as he can't be transfered to the ward with the medazolam infusion. If all is stable overnight, he will likely be transfered to the ward tomorrow. This evening one of the nurses said that she'd never seen a patient that had so many nurses and doctors come by just to see how he is doing. After she got some smiles from Noah she said there was no question as to why he is so loved so much here. That's my boy!!

Kailyn & Joshua came to visit yesterday. Noah was smiling and very excited to see them. I told them that Noah's tube is gone to help him breathe and that he is getting much better. Joshua just looked at me and stated very matter of factly; "Well that's because I prayed for that." The faith of a child...

You are such a gift Nichole. God picks very special people for his very special tasks. God knew he needed a strong, faithful family to care for the very special gift that is Noah, and I am shown every time I read this blog that he certainly picked the right one. You are all inspirations...thank you for sharing your story with us. Prayers, as always.
