URGENT Noel Update!

I’ve just heard from Noel’s Grandmother and she’s asked for urgent prayer!

Here’s the message:

Prayer warriors, we are needing prayer desperately for our Noel!!!!! We had to have the hospice nurse over to give her morphine for her air hunger. Her breathing is very labored and holds her breath now quite often. She is fighting for each little breath!! Please pray for Alex and Caleb also.

Please join us in praying for this beautiful family.

Father God, we pray now for little Noel!  God, please even out her breathing and bring calm and peace to her system.  Lord, we ask that your healing hand be on her little body.  You know what’s going on in her body, better even than any doctor.  Give Noel strength to fight through this.  Also, be with Caleb and Alex as they wait and pray.  Bring peace to the family and help them remember that You are sovereign.  We ask Lord that this be just a bump in the road towards a long and healthy life for this precious little girl!  Please God.  Amen.

Thank you for your prayers and your support.

Love, Sarah

Noel: Two week update!

Happy Two Week Birthday Noel!

Noelfamily1

Two weeks ago, God blessed Caleb and Alex with a beautiful baby girl.  The doctors had no hope for her… yet, here she is!!  You know why?

Because our God is a God of hope!!  There is always hope, because there is always God! 

He has proven himself over and over throughout history… and over and over in the life of this precious little girl.  One of Alex’s dearest friends, Jennifer, posted some beautiful thoughts on Noels name and I wanted to share it with you!

Noel WordsI watch as people visit my blog from all over the world and I know that this wonderful little girl is touching people everywhere.

Today Noel’s family is giving her an increase in formula as the nurse has advised.  Sadly, it won’t be cake or ice cream but it’s still a wonderful thing!!

Noel is too young to understand this, but we aren’t.  God… the God who placed the stars, He is using her in His plan.  I don’t know why it is under these circumstances but He is reaching out, through her, to so many.  Please continue to pray for healing and expect with me to see Him move mightily!!  Thank you again for all your prayers, are your thoughts and all that you have blessed this family with!  They are feeling your support and are so grateful!

We praise You, Lord, for these two weeks as Noel has grown!  What a blessing she is to her family and to us.  To watch You work in her life and see Your great power is so amazing.  We praise You for she is fearfully and wonderfully made!  You created her and You are sustaining her.  We trust in Your unfailing love and we know that You have a plan for Noels life.  A plan that we are watching unfold and a plan that is drawing myself and countless others closer to You.  We pray that You continue to work in her life and may she have many years with her family to come!  We pray for Your hand of healing to be on her.  Mend all of her, Father God.  Show the world Your power as so many eyes are on this little girl!  Be also with Caleb, Alex and those who are caring for her 24/7.  Please give them energy and wisdom!  Amen.

Noel26Seriously adorable!

Love, Sarah

Blessings: A Noel Update

Hello friends!  Welcome to the newest update on Noel and her family.

Noel19Noel22Noel has been having pretty good nights with usually only one fussy time.  It seems to be usually when it’s her Daddy’s turn to be with her.  Little girls and their Daddy’s!  It’s tough when she fusses as it makes it hard for her to breathe.  Still, she’s been doing well.  The health nurse visited yesterday and is really impressed with how Noel is doing.  Her respiration and heart rate are good!  Noel is also gaining weight!  She was down a bit on Friday but has gained nearly a pound!!  God is so good!

Noel20Since the hospital, Noel has been fed through a tube going into her stomach.  She eats at 7 am, 10, 1, 4 then 7pm.  It takes her an hour to eat 25 ml – that’s just over an ounce.  It’s been a slow process.  The nurse said yesterday that they can try giving her a bottle.  There was a lot of uncertainty as to how well she would do with trying to suck on the bottle.  Swallowing has also been a challenge for her too.  So, last night Noel got her first bottle…

Noel21And, she drank it like a champ!!  Actually, she drank it so fast that she freaked out her Grandma!  We are so very thankful that she took the bottle so well!  If this continues, she may be able to be weaned off the tube feeding.  Thank you God for this blessing!!  Noels family are grateful that she is doing so well but continue to ask for your prayers.  Without knowing what is going on inside of her body, there are still many questions left unanswered.

Noel family

Thank you for your prayers!  Every day we are seeing miracles with Noel.  We know that the Lord has a plan for her and believe that it will be a long life with her family.  We are still beseeching the Lord for total healing of Noel.  That He would make her heart whole, that He would join her cerebellum, and delete that extra chromosome 3.  Go Prayer Warriors!!  Please also keep Alex in mind as she heals from surgery!

I am so awed and amazed with what God is doing for Noel and her family!  To see the continuing miracles that He is bringing to her life!  I have been brought even closer to the Lord in worship and praise as I watch this miracle unfold and I am so excited to see what God has in store for Noel and her family!

We love all of you and are so grateful for all the prayers and support for Caleb, Alex and Noel!
