I finally got Noah's surgery scheduled! Texas Children's is so strange when it comes to scheduling some things...they basically picked a date and called and said that was when he would have it - we got no choice. BUT, luckily it works great. It will be on June 19th...we are not sure what time of day, they will let us know the week prior.
Andy has been SO busy this past week! He turned seven months, got his first tooth, started crawling AND went from laying down to sitting up all on his own - all in a week! He is even trying to pull up on things! Where has the time gone?!
Noah is just funny. He says the craziest things and dances CONSTANTLY. He loves to sing songs and make Andy laugh. He told me today Andy's name is Andyson (it is actually Anderson) and he is Noahson and the cow he saw out the car window was Cowson. Ha! Silly kiddo.
I hope that you are all well!
I am sorry it took so long to post the update - but when we are back home we have our internet and tv shut off at the house. We just got back last night. Noah really did very well on Tuesday. He was a little freaked out right as he fell asleep with the sedation, but woke up happy and actually pretty silly! He still has the PDA (5-7 mm), so small to medium in size, so he will have to have it closed. He will have surgery in either late May or June (we can schedule it in April) at Texas Children's. We feel thankful that the surgery is no longer open heart...they can do it through a catheter they put in the leg and they feed it to the heart through that artery and then insert the size device that should aid the spot to close. After surgery he will have periodic sedated echo's to make sure it worked correctly. I will let you all know the date when we find out! Thank you so much for the prayers!!!
Hi everyone! I know I do not post on here too often, especially posts other than saying my blog is updated...but I really wanted to write and ask everyone for prayers on our little Noah's behalf. When Noah was born we were told that the ductus arteriosus in his heart did not close, which meant that blood was able to continue passing through it. In some cases this can send too much oxygen rich blood to the lungs and cause problems. We have been very fortunate that although Noah has this PDA (Patent Ductus Arteriosus - a congenital heart defect, that is a murmur) he has shown no symptoms and has had no problems with growth, development or lung deterioration. This upcoming Tuesday, March 3rd Noah has a sedated echo scheduled at Texas Children's. This appointment was planned since he was just three months old, at the last echo he had. I am just praying for the results that Noah's PDA has decided to close on its own (which is entirely possible) and we can move on without any concern. If it has not closed, we have been told Noah will have to have surgery by his third birthday (next January) to close the murmur. I appreciate all of your prayers for our sweet Noah!!!!
I figured I might as well jump on this bandwagon too....
