Clean Bill of Health

We had a routine heart appointment on Friday. Scott and I had been a bit concerned about Duncan's resistance to completing his designated amount of milk. But Dr. Cua said that all the heart information (EKG and echocardiogram) looked really good. The stint that was placed during his last cath is doing the job it is supposed to (keeping that part of the arch of the aorta unrestricted) and his heart is "squeezing well." All good news!!! If all continues to go well, Dr. Cua said we can expect the second surgery to hapen between 5 and 6 months of age - which would be November-ish.

As for his weight: Duncan is 9 lbs 4 ozs. We have NO idea about Jackson's weight, but I would guess he's nearing the 12 lb. mark.

I was feeling icky all last week and can finally say that I have successfully knocked whatever bug I had... and now Scott came home with a soar throat today. Yikes. We can't seem to stay healthy... yet the little tikes with the most vulnerable immune systems are pulling through just great (so far!)!

And now, the main reason I know most of our regular blog-checkers keep up with this site... THE PICTURES:

Trisha,
I have kept up with you and your family via Charlene and Barry. I went to Middletown Christian Church with your mom and dad. Charlene does my hair and we are very good friends. As a matter of fact, we have them over for dinner last weekend to catch up. Barry and Charlene told me about your website and I have thoroughly enjoyed keeping up with you through that. I know your mom is looking down and smiling at what a wonderful mom you are. Thanks for sharing so much with all of us.

Anne
