Wires, wires, and more wires
Yesterday Noah had an EEG to measure his brain wave activity. The test showed no change from his previous one 3 weeks ago which was good.
This morning the docs were doing rounds and stated that he had reflexes! This may not seem like a big deal to you, but his knees and arms have not shown reflexes since we got here! Thank God!

This is a picture of his EKG this morning. They heard a heart murmur this morning so had this test run. The murmur is a flow murmur which is due to the fact that today his hematocrit (blood count) was 21.1, normal being 40. Noah will be getting 40ml of blood today. We would have loved to be his donors but it is a 3 day process, so we'll donate tomorrow in case he needs another transfusion later. They can use the rest for other kids if they want. Please pray for a healthy response b/n his blood and the donor's. Also, he had had a fever the other day, it went down, but this morning he has a low grade temp. Pray for that to go down again. Posted by Picasa

    Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. Eph. 3:20

  3. He is precious and my thoughts and prayers are with you. I don't know really much about what's going on but Everyday mom mentioned Noah on her blog.

    Thoughts are with you as you go through these trying times.

    Noah looks like a champ ready to fight! God bless you all!

    Hey guys, sorry we haven't gotten over to see you for a bit. We got a stomach bug going around and a cold, but we have been keeping up daily on Noah's updates. We are continuing to pray for the doctors to figure out what is going on. Also, we are amazed at the impact that you both continue to have on the people around you. You guys are an example to all of us. May the Lord continue to give you the strength that you need to persevere. We love you.

    I can't get over how much bigger he looks, and healthy, too! God has his hand on Noah; that is evident to all. He is continually in my heart and in unceasing prayer for complete healing. So many breakthroughs have happened, and now I'm praying that confusion will cease among the physicians, and whatever Noah needs to have, will be made clear to them, and that it, combined with God's miraculous healing power will bring about the total healing speedily. I know that God's ministering angels have never left his bedside and that all is well with little Noah. We love you, Judy
