This morning Noah arrived at Children's Hospital south to have his scheduled CT scan. He did very well. He was sedated during the scan so he could stay still. He woke up a bit wobbly but hungry. We have not heard how the scan turned out yet. We have been waiting for a phone call all day from his neurosurgeon's nurse. At this point, we consider no news good news. If the scan indicated that it was time for Noah to have surgery now, we would have received a call to pack our things and come check in.
It is a huge relief that we get to celebrate Christmas and the new years holiday at home. This should be a pretty good Christmas. Playing the part of Santa, Jessica and I have gotten him two bikes. One that has pedals (and training wheels) and one that has a motor and is battery powered (in case after surgery he has trouble with pedals). Either way he will get what he is asking for - a new bike.
So unless we hear something different tomorrow, it looks like January 9th we will check into the hospital and prepare for surgery # 3 on the 10th.
Over 3,800 of you visited this site today. We are getting some of the most encouraging emails from strangers, words of love and strength from our friends on Facebook and even meeting people who know about Noah for the first time in restaurants. Folks all over are praying for him and we are so very humbled. Cards from all over have come to our house to encourage Noah and some of you have surprised us with early christmas presents for him at our apartment. God is strengthening us through you.
Thank you for your gift of love - your prayers for Noah. A greater gift could not be given.
Pass it on
Pray for Noah
