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).

A Day of Progression




This has been a day of progression. Noah has been able to get up and move around much more than he ever has before. He walked out of our room and got on a special bike/tricycle. He rode around the unit three times and rang the little bell a few times too. He did so great. We also were able to walk to the playroom and play the Wii as well as do a craft project. I have a feeling we will be spending a lot of time in the playroom. Our biggest issue at this point is trying to figure out why he is still throwing up. He ate ice chips almost all day and had no problem but as soon as he ate part of a Popsicle it made him sick. I hope we can get a real plan going for this so he can eat something of significance. They still have said nothing about when we will be discharged and go home. It still could be a while. He will have to remain on antibiotics through his PICC line for several more weeks regardless of being discharged. It is something that will have to be handle either at home or at another hospital facility. Again, I am not quite sure about all of that either. There is a possibility we could be discharged but have to stay in the local area for a while. We will just have to wait and see what they think. I am including a video of Noah’s ride on the tricycle and his latest tie drawing on his chest dressing. Enjoy and I hope to have more good news soon!

I pray you can get to the bottom of what's making him sick when he eats. I will pray specifically for that! Your girls are looking so grown up in their first day of school picture. I know it must be hard for them (and you too!) not to have you there with them on a day to day basis right now. Praying you guys will be reunited soon!
