God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Anna Grace - July 9

Anna Grace had a great visit at the Cardiologist Office today. Well, great meaning he was pleased with her progress - although Anna Grace cried during most of today's visit. She had to have an echo today, but she was crying so much that Dr. R wasn't able to see everything he wanted to see, but just enough to be satisfied that her heart function looked good. He looked at her chest x-ray from yesterday and was pleased with how it looked as well. Dr. R wants us to repeat the chest x-ray in 2 weeks (at Dr Y's office) to be sure that no fluid is accumulating in or around her lungs. We see Dr. R again on AUGUST 10 - a whole month from now!!!!! We've never been that long between cardiologist visits. At her next visit he wants to do another echo - if she cries and doesn't cooperate during that echo then he said we will have to schedule a "sedated echo". The sedated echo will have to be done at the hospital as an outpatient procedure - I really hope that we don't have to do that, but he has to get a good look at her heart so if that's what has to happen then that's what we'll do. In the mean time, I am just supposed to be on the lookout for any fever which could be that start of a heart infection. These heart infections are very common 2-6 weeks after open heart surgery so part of our daily routine with Anna Grace right now is to monitor her temp. At the first sign of fever then we'll need to take her in for an echo. So, overall a good visit. Thank you friends for praying over this for us :)
