Walking and Whistling

Sorry for the delay in posting but this day has been packed full of activity. Noah's day did not begin very well. He was still dealing with some pain issues. So much so that he only ate one bite of his 3 pieces of bacon at breakfast. Everyone knew something was wrong when he wouldn't eat his bacon. He finally started feeling a little better when we got him to sit in a chair beside his bed.
We had a nice visit from our friend "Miss" Dawn. She brought Noah a very cute game that he really loves. He played with it for quite a while. It was great for distracting him from the pain in his chest. We also received a special package from Grammy and Pops that included cookies, legos, bubbles, and some cool train whistles. The whistles were great because that is the type of toy he needs to help with his respiratory issues.
We also moved upstairs today which means we are officially out of CVICU now. He is in a pod room that includes two babies. Pray he gets some sleep tonight because they can be really loud.
Before we moved Noah he was able to get a quick walk in down the hall. He was in pretty bad pain but he was a trooper and did it anyway. I am going to include two photos that include our friend "Miss" Dawn giving Noah his cool gift as well as Noah and I blowing on the train whistles.
Lastly, I want to include some additional information about my post from yesterday. If anyone is interested in attending Judson's benefit concert for Noah it is at 7pm this Friday night (Aug. 5th) at Fletcher Memorial Baptist Church. I believe it will be open to whom ever wants to attend. I am sure it will be a blessing to everyone. I want to say thank you again to Judson and his family for thinking so highly of Noah.
Continue to pray for weight gain, pain reduction and control of his infection. Thanks everyone!

I love you two!
Great posts and great pictures. Of course, we are praying hourly for the topics you mentioned. And, I'm ready to have our family all under 1 roof again - praying for that.
Noah, I'm sure glad we got your haircut before the surgery! Just think how "shaggy" you'd have been!
Love, Daddy
PS. Wo ai nimen!
