Last week was the Holter monitor & this week it's the dentist. Joshua got a good report yesterday...no cavities!!! Hip hip hooray, thank heaven for that! So we have yet another appointment checked off our list. Today Joshua said goodbye to his gymnastic classmates & teacher. We are officially on lock down, no more church class, no more gymnastics, no more playdates. We have 3 more weeks that we HAVE to stay healthy. That's right, surgery is in 3 weeks!
In that time we have a couple more things on our to-do list, but we are getting there. As surgery draws nearer we are feeling very encouraged, but have moments of anxiety every now & then. Luckily they are just moments.
I have decided that I will donate blood for Joshua's surgery, we have the same blood type. My dad is going to as well. Joshua has been the recipient of countless units of blood, thank heaven there are willing donors! I am going to make an effort to give blood more frequently since we have directly benefited from others who made the sacrifice. In honor of CHD week you should go to your local blood bank & donate too! You never know who your blood will help or perhaps even save!
