We had an appointment with the pediatric cardiologist today. In case you don't know or remember, while in the NICU Ryan was diagnosed with 2 heart defects: a hole between 2 chambers of the heart and a kinked aorta. At our last appointment, we learned that the hole was almost completely closed and that we were waiting for the right time to do surgery on the aorta.

The Dr spent about 45 minutes looking at his heart using an ultrasound. Then he showed me the kinked aorta pictures from our last appointment and showed me that there was NO KINK at all today. It really is a miracle and we are very, very blessed! Ryan was discharged from the care of the pediatric cardiologist and given a clean bill of health on his heart.

It was so nice to hear good news from a dr and to see, again, the tender mercies of the Lord in our lives. Thank you for your prayers, love, and support!

Master of Avoidance

Today we had the Occupational and Developmental Therapists over to play with Ryan. You can see all the therapy stuff all over the room. After doing some work, Ryan closed his eyes and shut us out. If you look close, you can see that his little eyes are just slightly open. Little stinker.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Today the kids and I made these cute little cakepops.
We had so much fun making them and really enjoyed sharing them with our friends.

Happy St Patricks Day!
