Surgery Update

We just wanted to stop in and give you an update on Noah's surgery.  First, thank you so so much for your prayers!  God has granted the desires of our hearts through your prayers and Noah's surgery went even better than the surgeon expected!  It is possible that he may need an additional surgery in the future to close his valve, but for now everything is looking good.  And we're very thankful!

Would you continue to keep Noah in your prayers? These first 12 hours are the hardest. Currently Noah's blood pressure is lower than it should be and continues to be low.  Please pray for his nurse and the others working with her to find the proper combination of meds to get his blood pressure and his heart right where they should be.  Finding the right combo of meds is a delicate balance.  In Noah's case, it sounds a little but trickier because his size doesn't match his age.  His heart rate is also currently lower than it should be.

Please also pray for comfort for Noah.  He is mostly groggy but clearly not feeling good (understandably!). We are thankful he trusts us and is willing to express his hurt to us.   His sedation meds are being lowered, so he is going to start waking up more- which means that he'll feel the pain more. Please pray for wisdom to read his signs and know how much pain meds to give him.

Thank you so much for your prayer and willingness to walk this journey with us!  

"You have multiplied, O LORD my God, 
your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; 
none can compare with you!
 I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told" 
Psalm 40:5
