Noah's Due Date

Today, July 1st was the day Noah was due. Tomorrow he turns 3 weeks old. Its crazy to think how my life has changed in the last 3 weeks. And its sad to think my baby is almost a month old and I've only held him once. But, I am grateful for every day I have that little man in my life. I love him so much that I would sacrifice anything for him. It's hard to be away from home and not get to see my husband or my family, but I am so thankful that we had a place to come that can give my son a new chance at life. I'm thankful for places like the Ronald McDonald House and all the generous people who bring in meals each day. I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined I would be here but I am truly thankful that here exists.

I spend every day waiting. Waiting for the next Dr. visits, waiting for the next procedures, waiting for a heart. Even though Noah is very sick, I know he won't be sick forever and I don't want to forget about waiting for the normal baby milestones either. I know his milestones will be different or delayed, but he still has them. Tomorrow he is 3 weeks old. You only get to be 3 weeks old Once in your entire life. And his first 3 weeks have been super tough so for him to be 3 weeks is AWESOME! He is still a super cutie and all the nurses just adore him. He's gained almost a pound since he was born. That is a grate milestone too.

........ I still can't wait for the transplant milestone! ;)

  1. I need to get your email address. Mine is I am going to be in Denver from the 12th - 15th visiting Adam's brother. I would love to hang out with you and visit Noah. Also, do you mind if I give your number to Brook (my sister-in-law? Justin is a medical resident, so her isn't home very much, and I am sure that she would love to go to the park or something. Also, if you need anymore blessings (which I am sure that all of you will) you can always call Justin. They are wonderful. They know what it feels like to be away from home since they were displaced for Hurricane Katrina. It is up to you, but just thinking it might be fun to have some semi-family around.


Thank you for commenting. I love hearing from you!
