As you can see in the picture, Noah wasn't very excited about the train ride at the Birmingham Zoo. He stuck pretty close to me and protested a few times before the ride started. About 2 minutes into it, he finally began to enjoy himself, and now he can't stop talking about the "choo-choo." The zoo was an OK experience for us. Because Noah is an active guy, he doesn't like being strapped in a stroller when there are new places to explore. Unfortunately, he doesn't respond to the word "stop" quite yet, and he fussed most of the time. Of all the animals at the zoo, he found the turtle the most interesting and wanted to watch him to entire time. Every exhibit we went to he would call for the turtle. :)
He had his port accessed around 2pm and saw his doctor, then we went searching for our hotel. It a good drive from the hospital, but it's a nice place to relax before our hospital stay (thank you Jennifer!). We need to be at CHS at 8:30 in the morning for Noah's MRI...I really doubt his MRI will take place before 9, but remember him in prayer all morning if you can! I'm getting anxious about it, but I know that this is in the Lord's hands. It does no good to worry - I'm telling myself that over and over.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers; I will update tomorrow evening with more information.
