Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~ Elizabeth Stone

Elijah and Family Update

In this case, I would say that no news is good news. I have been posting less and less in part because there just aren't that many updates anymore. And for that I am very grateful. Elijah is doing well. We had an appointment with his cardiologist on Monday and this was the first time in his life that we didn't need to have an echo. He had an xray and an EKG and obviously he was examined, and through it all he was a trooper. He is now satting between 97 and 98. His lungs look clear and his pulse is good. We were able to wean down on the lasix so that he only takes it once a day. We are hoping to be able to discontinue the Warfarin by the first of the year. He has put on some weight and may actually get onto the growth chart in the next couple of months. All in all he is making good progress.

Noah is also doing well. He likes his school and he has adapted to being without his brother. He loves art and is now taking swim lessons and art classes. It is so much fun to sit back and watch him. He is no longer my baby, he is a boy. I took him to a movie night at his new school and he walked in with such confidence that I was surprised. He talked to the other kids and navigated the place like he owned it. I only wish I had had that kind of confidence when I was 5 years old. We are very blessed to have two such amazing little boys.
