All I Can Do Is Trust...

Noah was admitted Monday morning with low grade fever and line redness. His peripheral and line cultures both came back growing staph again (the same bug we stopped antibiotics for 2 weeks ago). By Tuesday, he was already up and about, scooting down the hallways. But because we can't seem to erradicate this bug, it has been worrisome. An ECHO and a bone scan were both done and both looked clear. However, staph is a difficult bug to get rid of, and so it was decided yesterday that Noah's best chance is to get rid of this line. This morning at 10am he will go to the OR to remove the infected line and reinsert a new one.

With 12 days to go before we plan to leave, we are all pretty stressed. All I can do is trust... trust that this will all somehow work itself out. I worry most about Kailyn & Joshua as it just isn't fair to disappoint them. We are all pretty tired of this life of chaos and it just doesn't get any easier. We are desperately working on a solution to permanently get rid of Noah's line, however, that could be a long process yet. All I can do is trust...

Sweet friend - you are in our thoughts and prayers. Bummer that they need to pull Noah's line. Noah-bean - you gotta behave now so you can go on a fun vacation with your family. Love to you all,
