Appt Update

Thanks so much those of you telling us you were praying for E this morning. It means a lot!

It was a long appointment and we still have to go back for more! Poor little E, who is going through terrible stranger anxiety, cried if the nurses or doctor even looked at her! I brought her pacifier (and lots of toys and food) just in case and it did come in handy.

She got an EKG and we were going to stay for an echocardiogram but the dr said it was going to be another hour long wait plus 45 min for the actual ultrasound. Both of us highly doubted we could get E to wait patiently all that time (after already having been there for an hour during her naptime!) and then ask her to lay still for almost an hour. Yeah right.

The dr thinks, from listening to her extensively and from the test that she has an innocent/functioning heart murmur. I was hoping that it had closed up but we are still thankful that it doesn't appear to be anything serious. It sounds like one of the wall of her heart is thicker than the other but won't know any firm results until the echo in a few weeks to check her valves and the walls of her heart, etc.

While I hate to think of anything being wrong with her sweet little heart, I am SO thankful that it isn't life-threatening like some people have to face with their little ones. I'll keep you posted once we get the other test in a few weeks.

Thanks for praying!! Maybe I'll go take a picture of our little Biscuit right now....:)
