Cardio Follow-Up

Another check-in :). I was going to wait and do the 2 appointments this week together, but you all are just SO darn sweet by emailing, texting and posting wanting to know about yesterday's appt. That truly makes us smile and feel SO blessed knowing that so many people are praying for our sweet little girl and wanting an update.
I am pleased to say yesterday's appt with our pediatric cardiologist went well. The Yearty grandparents made an appearance at this appointment, and while the ultrasound really just shows the heart at the cardiology appointments, they were intrigued. We absolutely love our pediatric cardiologist and the grandparents felt the same. He spends so much time with us, draws us diagrams, explains everything in great detail. Things are still the same, with the Tetralogy of Fallot diagnosis and we'll await for her debut before they know exactly which type of surgery they will perform and when. That will be a stressful time as well, but we take it one day and thing at a time. Try not to borrow trouble for tomorrow. We are thankful for the good appointments, we feel so blessed each time we get to go and it's good news. We loved seeing the sweet face in 3-d last time (below) and we've definitely gone from grim to hopeful. Still nervous? Absolutely! But I know that goes with just about any pregnancy. And I've always erred a bit more on the cautious side in life. :)We have another appt with our regular OB this Thursday and then we meet for the first time, the surgeon at Egleston next Monday the 18th and back to the specialist the 27th. Lots of April appointments with lots of different people, we are so thankful for the staff and doctors we have met on this trek, they have all been wonderful thus far.
Thank you again for everything and most of all the prayers and continued prayers, complete strangers have lifted our family up, and we just are in awe of the amazing people that are graciously doing that. We still have a few months to go, 3 1/2 to be exact :). God is at work in this little one's life and we can't wait to see it unfold.....thanks for being a part of it all.
