Joshua has an echo (ultrasound of the heart) coming up this Thursday. The anticipation always causes worry, loss of sleep, etc. for me. Really, he has been doing well lately, but I've noticed on more than one occasion over the past couple of weeks Joshua sweating (a sign that his heart is working extra hard). I also feel like he has been more pale, and bluer than usual. So Joshua's cardiologist decided it was time for a check up. I agreed.
This is the part where I need your advice...in the past Joshua has done pretty well with echos, but now that he's an expert walker there is no chance he'll lay still for an hour. It is hard for me to sit still in that room for so long, so I can't blame him. He doesn't watch movies or t.v. so that is out of the question. I may be able to distract him with food, that's his weakness. He is too young for bribes. So any other tips? I would love to hear them!
And please if you have any spare room in your nightly prayers - squeeze Josh in there!
The hope is that we'll have a good report to post come Thursday evening!
