Well, Noah's stoma (blow-hole) closure surgery was an incredible success thanks to our MOST FANTASTIC Otolaryngologist. About two hours after we kissed our Noah goodbye we were finally escorted to his bedside in the PICU where we (in awe) watched and listened to him inhale........then exhale from (only) his most perfect mouth and nose. As our Little Man woke up from his deep anesthesia sleep his recovery went relatively well considering his breathing experience is entirely new to him. The first words Noah signed was, "MaMa", "car" and then immediately pointed towards the exit door. "MaMa, get me outa here!" That's our Noah. We thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers for our Little Man. We are expected to stay until Sunday so please keep them coming.
