Today was "one of those days". Nichole had taken Noah in Thursday at around noon. She was in the ER until 2:30 am trying to get a good IV Line. They were finally able to find one using ultrasound in his scalp. This was actually a good start to the day considering what was around the corner. Friday afternoon, Noah started have bright red blood show up in his GT Drain and also in his diaper. With the source of this internal bleeding unknown and also a poor access site he was rushed to the Operating Room. After 3 hours in the OR, he is now resting in PICU with a new central line, arterial line, blood infusion, intubated and on the ventilator. Believe it or not, this is a much better situation than it could have been today.
Hopefully both he and Nichole are able to rest well tonight.
Thank you to all those who have been praying for us, it is appreciated. This is a good reminder to all of us what is important and what really is not this Christmas Season.
