This crazy boy just went in for his annual heart echo and EKG up at Primary Children's Medical Center. Everything looks just about the same as it did last year, which is GREAT because the problem has not gotten worse. The doctor estimates at this rate, he won't need to have surgery until his late teens. This is good news. Every year we go in and axiously await whatever the doctor has to say, but deep down, I always know that these are the years we have with Brayden to run and jump and play. And when he is older, no more of that until his heart issues are resolved. So maybe I let him get away with being a little more wild because of this?? I don't know. But either way, I am glad to hear that things look good so far.
Now as for everything else in my life? I'm pretty much a big mess. There is so much going on that I can't even begin to talk about, but what I can say is- pregnant women handle enough just being pregnant and trying to deal with hormones and other crazy things (speaking of which, starting next week I will be getting progesterone shots every week=- yay for even more crazy hormones...) Anyways, but to have extra crap in my life on top of it is not helping. Especially since I am trying to keep this baby in longer...not have the baby sooner due to extreme stress...which I have had. Alright, I am not going to ramble on forever about it. I just know that I am so grateful to have such a wonderful family who is always there for me, who always has my back, who puts judgements aside, who I know I can always and forever trust. I have recently come to be more grateful to those in my life who are truly there for me.
---So hopefully the next post I can tell you all about my fun times with my sister in town and maybe even what gender of baby we are having...hopefully!---
