Well, I took pics of Isaac tonight, but....then, he started wretching and throwing up...so, the pics look too sad to post. BUT, let me tell you about our card visit!!!
**His pulmonary arteries are not showing much narrowing, his right ventricle is not too big, and his valve leakage (on a scale from 1-10) is a 6 (10 would mean that we needed a valve replacement. Dr. Mayman said that we should be able to sail through this winter without a heart surgery...maybe even a year or two (fingers crossed!) BUT, we are a little concerned about his rapid heart rate....so, we did a BNP (that's the blood test that measures some hormone in the body that shows if he's in heart failure)...they didn't call me back today...so, I'm hoping that the numbers were within normal limits. THEN, they sent us home with a holter monitor to just monitor his heart for 24 hours to see if anything silly is happening. (we'll get those results Thursday or Friday). He did DOUBLE our blood pressure meds...but, other than that...we don't have to go back for THREE MONTHS!!! whoo hoo!!

He's still wretching and throwing up...no reasoning behind it...he just does it....then, it takes all his energy, so he sleeps for an hour. poor little thing!

I don't think that we have any appointments this week....so, YEAH FOR ME!

**Our little heart friend, Johnny, is in the hospital today recovering from a heart surgery...please keep him in your prayers and stop by and give his parents some words of encouragement. (they are such a sweet little family)

OK...let's do the Eli Cheer....
Yeah for Isaac,
Yeah for Isaac,
Yeah for Isaac,
YEAAAHHHHH ! ! !

This is something I just learned about while Kat and the kids were here. Whenever Isaac does anything special, he is reinforced with his own special "Cheer".
After sitting up on his own, or putting some food in his mouth you immediately hear...1,2,3, and the cheer starts. The only problem, it's not in your regular voice. It is done in a shrill high pitched voice, that can be heard throughout the land. Kat and Eli do it in unison. No matter where Eli is in the house, upon hearing the 1,2,3, he chimes in.

So everybody, 1,2,3,
Yeah for Isaac,
Yeah for Isaac,
Yeah for Isaac,
YEAAAHHHHH ! ! !

Has he done the Holter before? I'm praying it shows nothing abnormal...
