HOME!!

Just a quick update to say that Noah is home! The surgery went very well. The whole procedure took just about 45 minutes, but he was in recovery for about 3 hours. He never does very well coming out of anesthesia. After a few hours he started to come around and was crying and pointing at his IV wanting it out. That's always a sign that he's ready to go home! We are so relieved to have this done and out of the way. After all the procedures and surgeries he has had, it never gets easier to see him go through it. The older he is, the more he understands what is going on. He is going to be in pain for a few days and already has some bruising, but we are hoping he is back to terrorizing his brothers by the weekend. We will meet with the surgeon next Friday to have the stitches removed.
I will most an update and new pictures soon! Thank you for all the love and prayers!

Hi Carrie,
So thrilled to hear that all went well with Noah. I can tell you that the older Jared gets, the more issues we have with his hemophilia. I pray that one day our children will understand and accept their medical issues!
Welcome home!
Hugs,
Sheryl
