Good News

The picture says it all! Joshua's heart function is great! No problems seen on the echo, the EKG looked great & his pacemaker is doing it's job (nothing at all, just back up)! What a relief and an answer to prayers.
I had an arsenal of food with me, including lollipops (thanks for the tip Gina) and lets just say we made it through the echo. There were a lot of tears, but he just laid there in my arms, didn't fight or squirm. He is such a good boy I hate to see him undergo stress, but it's over with.
Dr. Rivera (the cardiologist) called me this evening and told me that he decided that he'd like to have a full blood draw done :( because it's been a while. I thought we dodged that bullet. So I'll take him in & just pray for only one poke.
Thanks everyone for the prayers & well wishes, it feels good to know that Joshua has a place in so many hearts!

Congratulations on the excellent news that we were so happy to read!! That is one of the sweetest pictures EVER!! His chunky cheeks, arms, and belly, those adorable dimples!! What a love!!! I wish we could hug him through the screen. And I must add how much older his is looking. It must be all that preparing to be a big brother!!

Now-we just need to get through ONE POKE...

I didn't realize Josh had his own site! I was so sad when you closed your blog and I wasn't able to blog-stalk you and keep up on his progress. Thanks for commenting so I could find you again. :) Josh looks cute as ever.
