Very Quick Update

Our roller coaster ride continues into this 9th day of August. I got word from the surgeons that they want to perform another procedure on Noah. After his main surgery they have been trying to keep an eye out on the stability of his sternum. This morning when the surgeon was taking care of his incision they noticed that his sternum was unstable. What does this mean? Basically, they have a fear that the infection may have moved into his bone and also may have a pocket/abscess below this area also. Even though Noah has been on antibiotics for weeks this pocket will be unaffected by them unless it is released. Well, we made it down stairs toward the OR (operating room) and we were stopped because of an emergency. We are now waiting to head back down there again. Just so you get the full picture, this includes no eating and drinking AGAIN. Luckily Noah has received some medication to calm him and he is sleeping right now. Well, that's all I have for you all right now. So, all you late night blog checkers will be happy to know the latest information. Please keep up the prayers. We are just hang'in in there until we get through this next step. Love you all, Robin
