Noah's Progress

I'm sorry for the lack of updates lately. I've been reading all my usual blog reads but just haven't felt the desire to post my own. I guess I've been a little wordless lately. (and if you know me or read my blogs you know this is rare.)

Anyways, I wanted to let everyone know how well Noah is doing. He rolled over for the first time the other day. Stomach to back (we are still working on strengthening his tummy muscles). But he hasn't done it sense. I'm sure he's just waiting for the right moment. He's always been one to find just the right moment to do things... so stay tuned. I'm sure he'll be walking one of these days just to shock me.

Today, he finally found his feet. I have been working so hard to try and get him to realize they were there and this morning I looked down and he was holding his foot! (Without me showing him how!) So that's a fun milestone.

We also had my wonderful cousin Angie come and take pictures of Noah and Lilly the other day. As soon as I get them back I will be sure to post them. She takes the most beautiful pictures. The ones she has taken of Lilly are so precious to me. Check out her website Sweet Memory Garden.

One last note, thank goodness for Synagis. (The $1800 shot) We thought Lilly had come down with the flu. She had a temp of 102.5. So we took her to the hospital to be tested because if she did, we would all (especially Noah) need to take Tamiflu to prevent us from getting it or at least help us not get as sick. We all had flu shots so I was stupefied to think how she would have gotten it. Well, the test came back negative. YAY! Then a few hours later we found out that one of the other tests in the panel was positive.... RSV! Lilly has RSV. So, as I try to confine Noah to his room and spray my entire house with Lysol (THANK YOU Lysol for killing the RSV virus!) I just keep praying he won't get it. I've even put him back on the pulse Ox monitor at night just to be safe.

Such is life I guess.


  1. I pray he stays healthy! My youngest who is 22mos and also gets Synagis was exposed to and contracted RSV over the holiday season. Luckily even though Synagis doesn't prevent RSV, it does lessen the severity of the illness and my daughter was never in the PICU or intubated.

  2. We'll all pray that Noah doesn't get it and that Lilly gets better very very soon. Thanks for the update though and Yay for Noah rolling over! I can't wait to see Angie's pictures! Love, Jen

  3. Angie does take beautiful pictures. But the subjects have to be pretty darn cute to make pretty darn cute pictures. Yay for rolling over. Good luck and we love you both.

  4. I hope he stays healthy too! I know the struggle of trying to keep your immunosuppressed child away from germs. It's like you get germ vision, you can see those microscopic bugs all over the place!

  5. Wow! I hope that girly gets better soon! Thank goodness for Synagis. Noah doesn't need any other trouble! And neither do you!

  6. Can you believe the price of those Synagis shots..amazing! And I think it's completely cool to hear about these milestones...rolling over and finding his feet!! Cool Beans!


Thank you for commenting. I love hearing from you!
