cardiologist appointment

emma lael had her cardiologist appointment went very well...she will need another open heart surgery in the future...WHEN??? will all depend on how well her heart tolerates the back flow of blood from her previous surgery...the doctor said it could be at age 8 or 18 we will take a wait and see attitude...she'll be seen in 6 months for another ECHO, ultrasound & EKG...she was taken off all of her medications PRAISE God! we didn't hear anything we didn't expect...emma lael was so sweet and laid back like she always is...gosh, i hope that doesn't change...she laid on the table for her ECHO liked she'd had it done before...which she has...she wasn't afraid of anything they did to her...i'd say it is because she's had all these tests done on her before and she knew none of them caused her any discomfort or pain....the doctor said to treat her like a normal kid that we have...with nurse mommy i'm not one to baby my kids so she will jump, run, skip, scream be as active as any other 3 year old would be.


  1. So sweet! :) Wonderful to hear she's off her meds and ready to 'jump' into her family full on!! :)

  2. Glad to hear she is off the meds. Khloe is off all but one of her's. It's a different one than she had in China though. She has a big apptmt in Minneapolis coming up on Nov.1st, so we're trusting for a praise report then, too! It's a procedure she will have to be awake for, so please keep her in your prayers.

    So glad Emma just gets to be a normal 3 year old... that's the way it should be! Praying that God works a miracle in that heart of her's and that a future surgery may be unnecessary.

    Love all the photos of her on here. You can tell she has a good relationship with her sweet!! :)

    Isn't it just fun having our baby girls home!?! God is GOOD! <><

    Blessings and Hugs,

  3. This is really good news, not surgery, but that fact that it is not emergent! Praise God, now you can just jump in a raise this little girl!!! Hope to see you guys this week.
