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!
