Noah had his back closed up after the doctors saying it would be far to big to be closed up ! amazing Miss Nicolson did an amazing job and we could never thank her and her team enough for what they did for noah x
also a shunt was fitted into noahs head for his hydrocephalus as this point we where told noah had the 1/4 left handside of his brain missing
Noah Wall how amazing you are ! as you can see from the picture noahs shunts quite far back and after we left noahs scar kept leaking ;0( we had so many trips to the hospital for gluing and re-stitching
This made noah have hurrendous headaches, noah would try and sleep but it was really difficult as every little noise would wake him even his own suck on his dummy, you could tell with his cry he was in alot of pain when the infection had gone another shunt was put in the opposite side of his head and whats called a wash out 2 Ltr's where used as the protein level in the brain fluid was still really high and this would of blocked the new shunt so the shunt a little further forward to save noah catching it when he turned his head, and time for noahs own body to replace the brain fluid (CSF fluid) it was decided for the best to stay in hospital until the stitches where removed
we where in the best place after all RVI newcastle hospital was amazing
noah decided to surprise us all by moving his legs !!
as you can see from this phone picture that noah doesnt have much brain at all, its the grey bit at the front also as you can see his eye socket doesnt have anything contecting them either
To think noah knows to open his own eyes, now crys & makes a fuss for his food is incredable hes bending his legs, laughing, smiling, eating baby rice, reaching for things, and very recent trying to crawl, it doesnt seem as if im typing talking about the same baby !!!
noahs amazing every day he shows us something incredable !
the shine charity have been fabulous with us and offered us alot of help they where kind enough to put noah in the online magazine called "Together" noahs on page 19
we received so many messages, cards & beautiful gifts thank you very much
the support on facebook, twitter did keep me going every day knowing I wasnt alone and especially when hubby had to go back home with the girls - school/work etc
Noah - me & my laptop and the whole world facebook & tweeting me back some incredable storys to tell & pictures to show you but now I must go and hug noah
