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).

The Meeting and the Wash

Noah is heading back to the operating room sometime today. It was supposed to be this morning early but since he is being added on the operating list there is no definite time. They will take him in and wash out his incision and possibly close it up. They will leave a tube in for drainage. The factor that may drive if they close or not will be the stability of the sternum bone. Right now Noah is pretty sedated and resting very comfortably.
The cool news is that Dr. Hanley came to our room to meet with me and see Noah. He said he felt very confident that they have control of the infection and that they may be able to close him up today. It was so nice to get some reassurance straight from him. I did ask about taking his picture with Noah even though Noah was sleeping and he was happy to do it for me. So, I am posting that picture so everyone can see this great physician. I am so thankful that God has gifted him in such a wonderful way. I pray blessings on him and his family. I will post more after he comes out of the OR so you all will know exactly how to pray. Thanks everyone for all your prayers!!!
