Hello From Noah
Hi, everyone! This is Noah. Mommy and Daddy made this blog for me so I could update everyone on how I'm doing. They said a lot of people have been asking about me, so here I am!
I was born January 15, here at Lankenau Hospital in Wynnewood, Pa., just a few blocks outside of Philadelphia. As you probably know, I arrived a bit early so I need to be in the NICU for several weeks.
The important thing for everyone to know is that I'm doing great! I'm very tiny, but I'm breathing very well and my heart rate is good too. They're feeding me very little, but it's more than I can handle! They're also giving me a little bit of extra oxygen through a CPAP machine. On Tuesday, they took out my arterial line! All in all they say I'm making really good progress.
The nurses here are taking very good care of me, keeping me nice and toasty and in a comfortable blanket. Luckily, Mommy and Daddy are up to visit several times a day. All four of my grandparents have been here too, and so have Aunt Debra and Uncle Jason, and Aunt Hannah and Uncle Kyle. I also can't wait to meet Aunt Amy when she visits in a couple of weeks!
Anyway, I should be getting back to nap time. But please check back here from time to time, Mommy and Daddy will be posting pictures and stories about my progress as the weeks and months go by. Thanks for all the well wishes!
