Soooo the good news....

Update on Noah:

The Good News: Today we took Noah in for an ultrasound to check the progress on his IVC Thrombosis and there has actually been some progress. He now has some flow through his inferior vena cava where there previously was none.

The Bad News: Last night Noah started vomiting alot, so after he had his ultrasound today, Dr. Bhonsack did his assessment and sent us back down to ultrasound to look at his appendix. Long story short - Noah just got out of surgery for an appendicitis. Originally when I found out, I thought maybe it was a good thing. Maybe this has been going on for months now and was causing some of the weird symptoms he's had. Unfortunately, the surgeon does not agree. She said his appendicitis was a stage 2 and has probably only been there for a day or two. Anyway, we are at Primary Childrens again, hopefully just for a couple of days.

I almost don't know what to say. It seems like your Truman Show producer is a sick and twisted dude. He's really digging in, ain't he? I mean seriously!!!!

When I came home the other day and saw your boys and they told me Noah was in the hospital again for possible appendix trouble I had to scrape my jaw off the floor. I just stood there and repeated "ARE YOU KIDDING ME? ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? Like a million times.

I'm sorry. What a drag!

But I like the good news.

Are you guys home yet?

So I guess we'll cancel the slumber party we were supposed to have tonight?

ha ha

Hey Deb, I hear ya, that's exactly what I said! Yep, no party at the cabin tonight. Nope, not home yet. The doctors took out the JP drain today (even though it was actally draining more today) so the incision wouldn't bleed tomorrow when they start up the anticoags again. I'm just really hoping he will be home by his birthday on Saturday. :(

Sooooo, was he home for his birthday?

We are in Island Park so I apologize that we were not and have not been more supportive.

We will have a big ole party in August okay. I just have to get through trek and I'm home free for the summer.

LY! Give Noah our love and aloha.

Yep, he was home for his birthday on Saturday. No big celebration, but he did get free video game time all day. Yeah, we'll have to do something in August. I'm postponing my CANADA trip until next Monday.

Lynita!!!! We miss you. I'm so sorry for all the crap you guys and little Noah are going through. Breaks my heart. I was thinking about you today and thought I would look at your blog. Haven't blogged for awhile. I was shocked at all you're family has been going through. Keep your chin up. You and Noah are in my prayers!
