All that to say that Roger and I would love your thoughts and prayers for Luke's cardiology appointment tomorrow morning. It has been five months since we have seen what his little ticker is doing and I am a bit more nervous than usual. We'll see tomorrow if it's mother's instinct or mother's paranoia, but I just feel like something has changed these past months. Luke is still his happy little firecracker self, just a slightly more winded version. Maybe he's outgrown his Enalapril dose? Maybe it's just a matter of Luke's heart having to work harder as he grows? Maybe he really does need his diuretic? It will sure be nice to get some information tomorrow.
And, your prayers for Luke's cooperation at " Dr. Chris' " are ALWAYS appreciated!
He is getting pretty savvy about doctor appointments and what that all means for him. Yesterday, when we went up to Children's, he had 101 questions about what Maddie was doing, why couldn't we see her, etc. I told him, "We can't see Maddie because she's back with all the nice doctors and they are taking care of her and her heart." Luke accepted my answer, then followed with, "Oh, Maddie's getting her flu shot?" My son has been through two open heart surgeries and his biggest concern is with flu shots! I love it.
Thank you everyone!
