July Well Baby Check

We still have no idea how the August 4 Visa Physical went, and I don't know that we ever will, but we did receive documents from a doctor's visit that took place on July 23. I have sent the documents on to our pediatrician with hopes that she will clarify some of the contents. One of the documents is the results from an Echo and the other is a "Cardiology note". The Echo results are pretty meaninglessness to me, but I do believe I am able to understand part of the note.

This would be a good time to use one of Frig's favorite sayings; do you want the good news or the bad news first? I'll start with the good news because that is what came first in the note. Apparently the VSD has gotten smaller. The bad news is it looks like the note recommends an operation will be needed. For some reason pressure has developed. I don't really understand why and due to the abbreviations used I do not know that it would be worth it to try a google search.

While Frig and I knew that corrective surgery was a very real possibility I never expected it would be a reality. I am being very cautious regarding Christian's grieving and attachment, but have been optimistic when it came to his prognosis. This is a bit of a blow to that optimism to say the least.


  1. you have always been, and continue to be, in my prayers. i hope your pediatrician can give you some answers soon.

  2. Saying a prayer for you all. I hope that your pediatrician can give you some answers to the abbreviations.

  3. How scary. Already thinking of surgery for your son. I can't even imagine. It seems you'll already see your strength grow as a mom so very early. I hope the doctor can give you answers soon. I can't wait for Christian to be home where he can get the best care possible and settle into his home with love. Such a big adjustment for him but one that will improve his life completely. Always thinking of you guys~
