Green light

The pulmonologists and GI docs have given Noah the green light for surgery today!

I am a little nervous about this decision because of Noah's CO2 levels last night but the doctors felt like we could move forward as long as Noah's oxygen levels stay strong, which they have.

We are on the surgery schedule for around 2pm, but it could be earlier or later depending on how the rest of the day goes for the surgery staff.  If you are interested in praying for the surgeon by name, the head surgeon is Dr. Keith Georgeson.

You have got to respect the long hours that doctors keep... our GI doc, Dr. Cavender, came by to talk to us after 7pm last night and the surgery fellow came by before 7am this morning.  Crazy.

Dear sweet Noah--I have been following your families amazing journey of faith the past couple months. May God surround the medical team and give them wisdom, and your family peace during your surgery. You are a very brave little boy--God Bless you!
Love, Rachelle

P.S--Have you checked into the Ronald McDonald house in the area--I volunteer at the one in our town-an amazing place.
