Two Months Old

Noah is two months old today. Kc and I had planned on taking Noah and Sierra to Woodward Park for a picnic. We would sit in the sun (it was supposed to be 79 degrees today), watch Sierra play with other dogs in the dog park, and enjoy a meal together. Instead, Noah woke up at 1:00 a.m. last night with severe vomiting. Because there was a bit of blood in the vomit, we headed straight to the Emergency Room at Children's Hospital.

Noah has been a bit under the weather the past three days. At first, I thought it was because of the vaccinations he received on Wednesday. By Friday, after a few cranky and cough filled days, I thought he had just caught a cold. After several tests in the ER, we found out he has RSV and pneumonia. Our little guy is quite tough – I had no idea he was so sick. He is currently on two separate antibiotics and will be monitored over the next few days. Because of the blood in his vomit, he is currently NPO (cannot eat anything) and will have further tests done. We'll keep you posted.

Kc went home briefly today to pack our suitcase – we'll be at Children's Hospital for at least three days – and brought Ryan bear for Noah's monthly picture. It's a bit challenging to take a picture of the two of them while they are lying in the bed, but here it is.Notice all the tubes and wires that Noah has again. It brings back many memories of our time in the NICU. We have been in great hands so far and hope that bringing our own pillows and down comforter will make the nights more comfortable. Wish us luck!!!

  6. Gosh darn it! This doesn't seem fair, little man, and we are so sorry you aren't feeling so good. But we know you are in good hands, and continue to pray for your Mommy, Daddy, and Grandparents for the strength and comfort you all need. We had 32 degrees all day yesterday, and 6 inches of snow. Woodward Park sounds a lot better! Love to all - Mary Anne

  7. Hey Little Buddy, it's Sierra here. You need to get well soon. I don't mind going to day care, but I sure miss you. As Aunt Nessie says you need to quit this and really start growing and gaining weight. I can't wait till you and I can play fetch.....yeah I will let you fetch the ball some of the time. I love you little dude
