Noah's Timing

Seems that Noah already had it all figured out and just wanted to remind everyone around here that he calls the shots! Around noon today, Noah's jugular central line came out. I'm not exactly sure what happened, whether he pulled it or not, but suddenly, there it was...on the floor! So our surgeon was called and Noah was put on the emergency OR slate for today. He went to the OR around 5:30pm and just after 9pm had a new central line, stoma revision and a skin biopsy done. He is now in PICU to be monitored more closely overnight, but everything went really well. He is extubated and he has his morphine infusion back, so he's a sleepy little guy. He's in the same room he was in a couple of weeks ago, and it really brings back the reality of everything he went through. I wasn't quite ready for all this today, but I can breathe a sigh of relief now that it's all over and we are one big step closer to going home!

Nichole, you have an amazing way of looking at things in a positive way. I'm glad that Noah had his surgery and am praying for strength for you each day as you sit in the hospital wondering what the next step is. Seems like some things happen quickly.

Well that little guy has his own way to get things going hey? Ok, so really it's God's way of getting you your OR before any strike!
I'm praying for healing and recovery to get you back to his reg. ward and then home! And of course for energy and health and strength for you and Brad, Nichole.

Hey Nichole! so glad everything went well!
Oh, and by the way, it took me another 15 minutes to get out to the car last night after I left you! I tried going downstairs, ended up I'm not sure where, and then I decided to go back up to the third floor and I made it from there. I was killing myself laughing when I finally got to the car...

Talk to you soon,
Love,
nicole

that is such an answer to prayer that he was able to get into the OR.

I just started reading your blog and I want to let you know that thanks to you I have learned so much about life and priorities and how to face trials with a positive attitude. Nichole, I admire your strength and positive attitude, and most of all your commitment to God through all that you've been through. You are like a celebrity to me. One day I would like to meet you and thank you for what you've taught me. My love and prayers are with you and your beautiful family.
