Update: Pneumonia

Noah was admitted to hospital this afternoon...his xray today showed the same pneumonia on the right side that was there last week, plus a new pneumonia on the left, along with an unbelievably high white blood count. The antibiotics we did for a week at home did not do anything for him. We've started some stronger IV antibiotics to hopefully kick this thing once and for all. We also have blood cultures cooking to make sure that his line is ok. Praying that it is just the pneumonia causing the high fevers.

He is looking ok this evening...we are settled in on CH5, surrounded by our "hospital family" who have told us this is just Noah's little "tune-up" before his big trip. Praying it's a quick one!! He is exhausted from all the work of breathing...but his breathing has settled this evening and we are hoping for a quiet night.

Oh I hope he gets better soon. If I remember correctly, didn't he do so great in Florida last time?? Maybe he just needs that warm climate!

We're praying for you too. It must be so hard to stay in the now and not get anxious about your upcoming trip. I'm praying for peace as you wait on meds, on healing, and on everything else...

The sermon this week...at my church...was about Prayer...persistent prayer.

I am persistently praying for Noah. I have faith that you guys are going to get your trip!

And my friends are praying, too.

So sorry..... We are praying for healing, that the antibiotics would work quickly, and for peace. Adam and Jordan pray for Noah every evening.

So sorry to hear this news. Praying for Noah and all of you, for peace and encouragement. We still have sickness in our house so I might not be able to visit for a bit, but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
