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).

Bright Hope for the Future


Sorry for the huge gap in blogging but there hasn't been too much going on that isn't our routine now. Noah was able to go to hospital school every day this week except Monday. He was able to play with my friend Elizabeth's niece this week too. They had a lot of fun together and hopefully we will see her again before we leave. Speaking of leaving.......
Today we pretty much got the go ahead to leave after Wednesday's ID appointment. We are planning toward that but we will see about it when it gets here. I am trying not to be too overly excited in case it all falls through. I will let you know.
Also, please pray for me. I have had some health (minor) issues this past week and it is no fun to be sick while you are trying to be a nurse to someone else who is sick. I am feeling a little better today but I would appreciate the prayers.
Noah had his Echo. on Wed. and it appears the vegitation in his heart has remained the same. I was really praying it would completely go away but that didn't happen. All of his numbers are continuing to trend down which is a good sign. He will go in on Monday for his normal blood draw and PICC line dressing change. We then have an appointment with the ID folks Wednesday at 11:00. Again, I have no idea what this meeting will do. I keep saying, "What are they going to do? Just look at him and say he looks good." They should be able to look at his numbers and test results to know how well he is doing. I personally think it is a waste of time but I'll do whatever in order to go home. Noah should continue to be on antibiotics for several weeks. We will just continue them at home instead of at RMH on the other side of the country.
Well, that's all for now. I will include a picture of Noah on the blog. Thanks everyone for continuing to pray. We still need it so much. Blessings to you all.....

An AMAZING journey for you and Adam and the entire Spitler family. What a graduate degree program in TRUST and God's provision! He has given you all the strength to go the distance in this chapter. I am confident the chapters to come will increase your and our trust on our Heavenly Father.
