NICU Cribs...

Today was a relatively quiet and uneventful day in the NICU except for the occasional heel prick for a blood sugar test or the suctioning to clear my trach. So, since I didn't need to make any scheduled trips down to surgery, I thought this would be the perfect time to give you a tour of my new Crib. Once my real estate agent showed me the location two days ago and I instantly fell in love.
The first stop on our tour is the upper West Wing. My Mommy and Daddy come up here a few times a day to gather gear and prepare for my trach suctioning. I don't spend too much time up here alone when the nurses are around because it seems they frown on the idea of me performing my own trach suctioning. I tried to argue the subject, but apparently it's written in the Room 1 association fee contract.
Second stop is the basement. Most of the other cribs I had my eyes on had basements, but this one was especially large. The nurses and I are able to store our equipment, personal items and fish (sterile saline drops). I apologize for the mess.
Adjacent to the basement, Nurse Lourdes installed a new jacuzzi. Today was my first dip in the water since my birth date. I can't say I enjoyed it, but Mommy mentioned how good I smelled after I spent time being scrubbed. I suppose this is why people call it a chick magnet.
Just south of my crib I constructed a wonderful lounge area where Mommy, Daddy and I spend quality time while we eat, rock and take wonderful naps together. From the lounge and my crib, the view out the window overlooks the valley and the snow capped mountains. It's absolutely amazing.
Thank you for stopping by to check out my new crib in the NICU.
Peace, Noah out!

  2. Noah, We love your new digs. Your view is amazing! But we think the lounge area has got to be the best part!! As for the Tanner boys, they don't really like getting clean either, but Mom and Dad Tanner (especially Mom) can tell you that a clean baby/toddler/little boy smell is still one of the best smells ever. Here's to a peaceful Sunday! Love and prayers, The Tanner Family

  4. I'm glad you like your new crib. It looks SO spacious! It does seem like a few drapes would help to soften up the place (and give you a little more privacy). Keep getting bigger and more healthy.
    Peace out,
    Uncle Andrew

  5. So Noah is quite the active little boy it sounds. So glad to hear everything is going so well. You guys sound like you are already pros at everything from colostomys to trach care! You could probably teach me a thing or two. ;-) So glad he is being so well cared for by the staff. Lourdes and Liz are both wonderful nurses and people. Hang in there little Noah, we are praying from you from Hawaii! (You totally have to make your parents bring you here for a family vacation when you get bigger. I think you would like surfing.)

  6. Hi Noah
    I think your new big boy crib looks wonderful and it must be so nice to be able to move around a little bit more. As nice as it is...I can see that there is no place like home..in your parents's arms. I have always thought your parents were so special and as I look at all that they are doing and learning to help you they truly are wonderful parents. It has been a week of challenges and yet the one constant is the love that you are experiencing by everyone that you touch. Team Noah is recruiting more and more people all the time. Love to all of you.
