3rd Times A Charm

Well, the day is almost here. Noah will have his third and final surgery tomorrow to reconnect or "take down" his ostomies. This will be almost 7 weeks from his first surgery and just two days after the babies' actual due date which was October 20! Thank you all for your prayer during this. Please continue to pray, especially tomorrow, for a successful surgery and quick recovery. We know that God is at work here and has been from the start. It was a miracle that they found the NEC disease in Noah so early and we continually praise God for that.
Noah Waiting Patiently

Chris and I are planning to stay overnight tonight at the hospital. We were told Noah is the first case of the day, so we are hoping they'll bring him down about 7:30 am. Luckily, Mom and Dad will be at home with Cohen and Sophia so we are able to be there with Noah.

We'll post an update on the surgery as soon as we can tomorrow.

Mari and Chris,
The Lord is merciful and faithful, His great love and compassion will never fail you or Noah. Great is His faithfulness to you and Noah, and you can wait on Him. He is good to those whose hope is in Him, to those who seek Him.
I have the day off tomorrow, so will have extra time to spend in prayer for Noah, and you. If you need anything, please do not hesitate to call.
In Christ's love,

Please know that I will be praying for Noah tonite and tomorrow. God has gotten Noah this far, and I know that God wants Noah home with his family, thriving and living life to the full.

I'm so glad that you both can spend the night at the hospital. I will be praying for all of you.

In God's love

Chris & Mari,
We will be praying for Noah in the morning, for the doctors, and for you guys as you wait.
We had 38 volunteers from COF sign up to help with feedings when all four babies come home! :) We're looking forward to that day!
Much love,
Laura & Mark Shook

Your children are precious! I am your mother and father's (in-laws) neighbor back in Cedar Rapids. I got your blog from our nieghbors the Burtons. I hope all goes well with the surgery and have you in my thoughts and prayers. I had two NICU babies due to having rather large babies. I have diabetes and had an 11lb. 3oz and an 11lb. 7oz! I was just amazed at all they could do with my daughters as well as the premature babies. They look so small in grandma and grandpas hands! Best wishes to you all- Kelly Trachta
