So many of you have put a ton of energy and prayers towards Noah's health and recovery and we sincerely appreciate it.  You have no idea how much.  To know that Noah is so loved (and so are we) just fills my heart until it almost bursts.  

We are having a really difficult time with Noah's eating (well, actually keeping things down) and we have lost that battle.  He actually threw up his tube today.  Yes, the tube was going in through his nose and coming out of his mouth thanks to a very serious spit up session.  

Man, when that kid wants something out of his stomach he really takes care of business.  

His surgery is scheduled for the 1st of Feb to try and fix the problem.  And while we have been defeated on this front we are (I'm seriously knocking on wood) taking HUGE strides to defeat the seizure monster living in his head.  As of January 2nd we haven't seen any of his typical seizures.  I'm holding my breath and watching his every move ALL THE TIME!

This doesn't mean he isn't still seizing but it does mean things are changing and hopefully for the better (if we can just get it to stay that way).  

I just wanted to let you know those thoughts, prayers, energies, and love sent our way are WORKING and we cannot tell you how much it means to us.  I've posted some pictures below so you can see the rewards of all of your hard work!  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Our little boy is gaining some head control back and his personality is showing through!  He complains about therapy finally!!!  It's nice to see he has an opinion... and is a little on the stubborn side (wonder where he gets that!).  


  1. I'm sorry about the digestive issues. I'm glad the seizures seem to be backing off. thanx for the updates. Hugs Jodi

  2. Improvement with the seizure situation AND Noah's now a SAINTS fan!!! (Sorry, Todd, The Pats have just caused me so much pain in fantasy football...) This is great news. I have to believe the outlook is more promising for the Sweitzer clan and am praying for a successful surgery. God bless ya'll.

  3. I just wanna pinch those cheek-ies!

    And give mom a squeeze too. It's exhausting being a seizure mommy...


  4. Praise the Lord!! It was so good seeing Noah again, his eyes tell me he's on his way back. I am excited for you and will continue to keep all of you in my prayers. Have been posting but my posts never seem to get posted. But I am here praying and keeping up with you and Noah and your journey.
    Love you,

  5. I am soooooo excited to see the look in Noah's eyes. Praise the Lord!! I have tried to post many times on your blog but it never shows up. Just wanted you to know that I am keeping up with your journey with Noah. Would so love to see you all again. Maybe someday. Until then know my love and prayers are covering you.
    Love you,

  6. Thinking of you always and praying for you all. Ashton says special prayers for Baby Noah. Good news on the seizures and so excited that his little personality is having a chance to come through and beat those seizure monsters!! Love you!

  7. I LOVE Noah's hair & LOVE the Saints outfit! I'm always praying for you & your family! I'll be thinking of you on Monday ;0) and I hope it helps!
