The Space Capsule…
Noah is no longer in the iron lung, or space capsule as we called it, but we wanted you all to see the device…as you know, he is intubated because this did not reinflate his lung.
The nurses did a culture on Noah’s mucous and he does have slight case of pneumonia, so he is on an antibiotic for 7 days to fight that off.
His MRI was the same as it was 3 weeks ago, which we don’t really know what that means, so we’ll let you know as we find out…
His fever has come down a little, so we are thankful for that. We also realized from a new nurse today that if we have too many people in the room or are talking a lot, he wants to interact and becomes overstimulated. He then coughs or cries and isn’t able to rest, so we are going to rotate visitors so we can keep his room as quiet as possible because sleep is an important part of healing.
Tomorrow we’ll take pictures of him on the ventilator so you can see his face. It’s nice to see him.
My husband is related to Diane T and she sent us sweet Noah’s blog.
I have also forwarded this to my daughter Rachel, who is in college and going to med school next year to be a Doctor. She just loves the kids at Shriners Hospital.
We have never ending prayers for Noah and for your family. From your entries he is a little fighter and he will be ok,we must believe. I will continue to stop by now and then to keep up with his progress. Hugs, Love and Prayers.
