A Few Things...

First of all, Noah is doing well. They pulled his feeding tube back into his stomach and he has tolerated it fairly well. He was having a harder time breathing today (as the stomach swells there is less room for his sick lungs to expand) but the Chest X-Ray looked OK. So they are just going to keep a close eye on it. He currently has NO IV's and has the chubbiest cheeks I've seen since Lilly was little. SO stinking cute. He is a cuddle bug, which I love. When the nurses aren't busy, they hold him a lot. Last night his nurse cuddled (and unofficially napped) with him for almost 2 hours. I'm so glad they are taking good care of my baby. I wish I could be there more but I know Lilly needs me too.

Second, I recently found out that the son of my Dad's cousin recently had a baby with similar heart defects as Noah. Little Beckham is currently on the National Transplant List in Iowa. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. Your prayers and love have been such a comfort to me and I know they have helped Noah continue to get better. Little Beckham could use some extra prayers right now too. You can check up on his progress at his family's website: Our Baby Beckham.

Third, I have a new friend here in the internet world. She has become my very own personal Angel. Her name is Jenny and she is so loving and compasionate to the families of sick kids. She has been a huge supporter of Noah and has posted his story on her GusGang blog to ask for prayers on his behalf. I could not be more grateful. Her pesonal blog is also a wonderful read and keeps me entertained on a daily basis. You can check it out at JennyUpTheHill.


  1. I'm so happy Noah continues to do well and doesn't have any IV's in him. I can't wait to see his chubby cheeks in person!! We'll keep praying for him to be able to breath and eat better and better everyday. Also, I went to your Dad's cousin's site and little Beckham is now going to be in our prayers as well!!! We'll pray he gets a heart very very soon! Love, Gary, Jen and Kya and one of these days. . . Mr. T :)

    This is Cyd. We are sooooo glad to be able to find out about Noah through this blog. I'm very grateful he is doing so well. He is beautiful also, good job. I'm excited Nev has a little friend his age, and look forward to being able to introduce them. We love you, and think about all of you constantly. If you'd like, you can email me @, put something about you guys or Noah in the title so I'll know it's you.
    I love you!
