Our Healed Heart Hero

On Tuesday, EIV had his check up with Cardiology at Children's Hospital.
He had an Echo, an EKG and a follow up appointment with Dr. Delaney.

He was very 'chill' during both the Echo and EKG.
A little iphone distraction doesn't hurt.

It was incredibly adorable...he looked up at the screen and said "Look at my baby"
Clearly he's been to one or two of mom's ultrasounds.
I summed up most of our feelings on FB that day.  Instead of re-writing, thought I'd simply share that:
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change"  -James 1:17
God is GOOD!!! After Edward's Echo, EKG and cardiology appointment, this morning we received AMAZING news.  His heart is in PERFECT, EXCELLENT, FANTASTIC shape!  They can't even see either the ASD or VSD repairs on the echo because the tissue has grown around it.  And we don't have to return to cardiology for 5, yes FIVE, years!! Unbelievable!  It literally takes my breath away! To think about how hard the first year of his life was.....likely the most challenging one we faced as family....and to see where we are now.  Thank the Lord!!  We are so very, very blessed!!!  Beyond words Blessed!
God is Good!
So, So Good!
We get to close this chapter of EIV's life.
We get to continue to give back to other heart families, Heart Heroes, and our heart community.
We get to celebrate health and perserverance.
We get to comfort and support those who provided us comfort and support.
We get to do so much more.
My Heart Runneth Over.....
