We went this morning to see a cardiologist who specializes in children at the local childrens hospital. Belle has had a small hole in her heart since she was born. We were advised to get an echo, which confirmed the hole the doctors and nurses heard in the hospital. Our action plan was to watch her and every six months we would get another echo. Last February, we went for our six month echo checkup and everything looked good. Our pediatrician said it was still there, but didn't seem to be affecting her, so we could move to yearly echos. Today was the yearly echo...I would have done it in February, but the darn deductible starts over in January, so here we are.
The doctor walked into the room, listened and ordered an echo, which worried me a bit. We went in, did the echo and Belle did really well. The doctor came in and gave us the results of the tests, no hole...it is gone! Praise God!
Thank you all for praying. That truly is a miraculous gift from God, just in time for Christmas!
