Wires, wires, and more wires
Yesterday Noah had an EEG to measure his brain wave activity. The test showed no change from his previous one 3 weeks ago which was good.
This morning the docs were doing rounds and stated that he had reflexes! This may not seem like a big deal to you, but his knees and arms have not shown reflexes since we got here! Thank God!
This is a picture of his EKG this morning. They heard a heart murmur this morning so had this test run. The murmur is a flow murmur which is due to the fact that today his hematocrit (blood count) was 21.1, normal being 40. Noah will be getting 40ml of blood today. We would have loved to be his donors but it is a 3 day process, so we’ll donate tomorrow in case he needs another transfusion later. They can use the rest for other kids if they want. Please pray for a healthy response b/n his blood and the donor’s. Also, he had had a fever the other day, it went down, but this morning he has a low grade temp. Pray for that to go down again.
