Here's a picture from today of Em and Noah snuggling. She got a lot of quality time with her brother today. We had story time and Bible time and sang songs, one of which, of course, was "Baby Face".
Noah's surgery went well last week. We got all his blood and spinal fluid sent off to the labs we had researched through a doctor on the outside. It was an 11th hour situation, for sure, as FedEx's last pick up here is at 5pm, so my sister and Em and I drove it over to their store at 6:55, closing time...7pm! Thanks to Tony in the Lab and super nurse, Shellie, for all their hard work in getting that all together! Anyway, while Noah was in surgery I got to pray with some people in the waiting room, waiting on their own loved ones in surgery. DON'T HOLD ME DOWN! Noah had to have another NJ tube put in because when he vomited last week he had aspirated some into his lungs. He's finishing up another round of antibiotics, which, of course, didn't do the job, so he's running another low grade fever. Jason's almost through Proverbs with Noah. It's about raising children, so quite fitting. Em and I are almost through with Psalms with Noah. The docs said we'd be up here a long time because they won't send Noah home on a vent without a homecare nurse, and those are several months out, so, by the time we're done here, we'll probably have the whole Bible read to Noah.
Well, the boys are hanging out tonight while Em and I head home. I'll take her to school in the morning and go work out as I have my best friend's wedding (sleeveless dress) soon! (Can you say, "Post partum?!")
Have a wonderful night and a very blessed week. Look at the hearts of people you encounter rather than the external. You'll see them the way God does and it may just move your heart to action...
