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.

Cardiology Appointment

Anna Grace saw Dr R today for a cardiology check up.  Her O2 sats are 88 and her blood pressure is good.  The echo showed good heart function and everything looked "normal".  We did give her adivan this morning before the appointment to help calm some of her anxiety since Dr R also had to pull some stiches today.  She didn't enjoy having the stiches pulled and cried and was upset during that, but recovered pretty quickly.

Overall it was a good appointment.  He decreased her lasix from 3 times a day to 2 times a day. We go back in two weeks.  She needs another chest xray in 2 weeks and then hopefully we can decrease her lasix to only once a day.

She still hasn't had a proper shower because Dr R wants her to just have a sponge bath for now.  She is a pretty stinky girl.  She also has decided that she only wants to wear pajamas and we have allowed that - so - since her surgery she has only worn pajamas - everywhere - all day.

She lost 3 pounds during our time in Charleston and we are working on gaining that back - so we have been allowing lots of brownies, cookies, chocolate, etc.  I am happy to say that the wonderful families who have been bringing us meals have also been bringing lots of desserts too so I am hopeful that she will regain her 3 pounds quickly.

The remainder of today will be spent at home hopefully resting.  Overall, today's appointment was good and we are thankful.  It is a blessing and a gift from the Lord and we do not take it for granted, not one bit.

Thank you for continuing to pray for our girl :)

Nothing wrong with PJs all day! ;)
Praying for her weight to go up, her need for lasix to go down, and for more and more peace, confidence, and security to fill her heart.
So glad things looked good! 88 sounds GREAT compared to 75. :)
Thanks for the update!
Love your guts---
