THANK YOU, GOD!!!
- Get Your Own
Today was an amazing day ~ a great day!!!
Mia had her cardiologist appointment and we got the best news!!! Her VSD has been closing and is now the size of a pin!
The doctor said he was honestly worried after looking over the medical papers from China on Mia's heart condition. According to these papers (which were dated when she was 9 months old) her hole was huge, the size of a nickel; and he was concerned she was living like this for the last 20 months.
Well, after reviewing her echocardiogram (it took my mom and I to hold poor screaming Mia down) he was thrilled to present us with this wondeful news!!
He wants to see Mia back in 6 months and does not anticipate the hole reopening (please no! I didn't even realize this could happen!).
I keep thinking over when we were reviewing Mia's profile and medical - we were told by many professionals, "you need updated information before accepting this referral, you cannot go on blind faith alone"...I was so confused because I knew in my heart that this was our daughter; but how do you take such a chance?? Well, I did have faith (or blind faith) and felt in my heart that this is right and that this is our Mia ~ wow!!
My poor little tiger had 3 doctor appointments this week - and boy was she ticked off! Monday was the pediatrician, Wednesday was the lab for bloodwork and today! You made it through, little girl with flying colors!!! (Keep fingers crossed that the blood & stool tests are this wonderful!!)
