First hospital stay... Check!

Where to begin?

I began today in an unusual fashion... rested! A very sweet friend came to the hospital yesterday and ended up staying for over 24 hours, including a period of about 8 hours during which I went home and slept and showered. A true blessing.

Noah's day began a little earlier than mine when he sneezed out the wire that was measuring the acidity levels in his esophagus! Fortunately, the meter had been recording for long enough that the doctor was able to get the results she needed. And the results turned out to be an answered prayer as Noah's reflux is not severe enough to warrant a second surgery! Hooray!

After an EEG, I met with Noah's neurologist who filled us in on the next round of tests. After Noah had his blood drawn, we waited to meet with the pediatric GI to be discharged. We waited. And waited. And waited. Apparently there had been a communication break down between the doctor and the nurses on our floor... 4.5 hours later she finally arrived and gave us the information we needed for our next visit to the hospital on Thursday.

Here is the pic of Noah and his favorite bug I promised... I couldn't quite get him to smile, but it had been a long day.
