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).

Back to the Third Floor

It has been a pretty good day so far. We did move up to the third floor which means we are getting better or at least well enough not to be in intensive care anymore. Noah has gone most of the day without getting sick. He did eat a Popsicle that made his stomach hurt really bad. He also walked all the way around the hall. He finally fell asleep from exhaustion.
He is getting some more nutrition through his feeding tube which makes me feel a little bit better about his recovery. He needs it in order to have enough strength to continue getting out of bed and walking around. The more he walks the better.
Today I am including pictures of one of Noah's surgeon, Dr. Sebastian. We really love him. He is a very good doctor and we have a lot of fun when he is around. I am also including some more fun incision covering art work. The Mickey Mouse head is by Christina and the tie is by our nurse from the last two nights, Denise. We have enjoyed challenging the nurses while having some fun at the same time. Thanks for the prayers and we pray you all are well too.

Such good news! We are so happy to hear that he is moving "up" and getting better. From Andrew "Noah, I can't wait to share 1st grade with you! I can't wait until you are at recess with us, miss ya buddy!" He wanted me to be sure I sent the message.
Hugs and prayers,
Emily & Andrew
