Journey to China

This blog documents the Spitlers' progress towards the adoption of Xia Ping He (Noah Spitler) from the PR China. It also documents Noah's medical process in pursuit of a total repair to his CHD (congenital heart defect).

Good Until 3 o'clock

Noah did well up until about 3 o'clock. He then had a lot of pain issues. He was just miserable. One of his doctors checked on him and was very concerned that he may be having a lung issue again. Finally it seemed that the pain medication kicked in and the happy Noah came back out. She said she thinks that really was the problem and they are putting him on another pain medication and will use it on a specific schedule. I also agree it is the best plan at this point. We really want him up out of bed and at least sitting in a chair by tomorrow. He was in so much pain today (even after getting Morphine) that he couldn't do it. I cannot imagine going through all that he has gone through. I will, we all will, be happy when we make it through all of this. I hope to have some good news to share tomorrow. I love you and good night.

Madison's friends and Sunday School class have had your whole family in our thoughts and prayers during this experience. Noah is such a strong boy with parents of strong faith. We continue to pray for healing and blessings....
