My aching arms


Nolan is doing well this morning. He's really swollen, but because his fever is gone and because he's taking lots of fluids, they were able to remove his catheter and arterial heart monitor. That also means he'll be able to move out of the ICU and into a regular room today. Dr. Smith has been in this morning and said that if he can open his eyes by Sunday, we can go home!!!




Once they got some of the stuff off him, I was able to hold him. Ahhhhhh....

I am so glad you are able to hold your baby again. We will continue to pray for you. God is faithful and he knew before Nolan was born what was to come. Just remember Footprints...it is what carried me many times through our rough times.

We "ache" for you...more importantly, we are praying for you. We wish we were closer so we could stop by and see you.
