Getting Better

Noah was able to get some sleep last night. He had a tough day yesterday but he is slowly recovering. The downer of the morning was having to get a new IV again. This seems to be something he has to endure once every day or day and a half. He completely dreads it and it really stresses him out. His mouth sores seem to be getting a little better and so he is able to eat a little more. We just got back from a little walk around the unit. He was not happy about it but he did it anyway. We hope to go for at least one or two more before the end of the day. My goal for the day is to get him a chocolate shake. I promised him one for lunch time so I will be trekking to the local McDonald's to make that purchase. He is happily playing his DS for now while anticipating the start of more antibiotics. I will include a picture of him eating his breakfast which included his favorite, bacon. I will try and get a picture of him walking later so you guys can see his progress. We continue to appreciate your prayers as Noah goes through his recovery. They are much needed and much felt---Thanks!

Noah looks really good in the picture. I'm so glad that he is resting better at night. That makes all of the difference in the world. Tell him that we all say "hello" and we are still praying! Take care, the Hendrix family.

Noah looks great and so do the two of you. We hope you've been resting well and we're thankful Noah is doing better and healing nicely. The positive news is very encouraging! We love you all. Uncle Scott & family.

I was glad to hear Noahs mini-surgery went well. He looks good and Iam happy that he is getting to eat.I know it is hard on you having to hear him say he is hungry,and you have to tell him he can not eat yet. I hope he will continue to get better and be able to eat more often. Tell him I miss him and that I love him and that I am so proud of him for being so brave. He surely is a special and sweet little boy. All my love.

Noah, Judson and I are praying for you to feel better soon. We have been wondering about you and just found out about your blogspot. Now we will be sure to check it everyday to see how you're doing and continue to pray for God's blessings. We love seeing your pictures, too!

Judson's mom, Donna Lowe
