Wednesday we had an Echo scheduled and then an appointment with the cardiologist to discuss the Echo. While nothing new was found on the Echo we did have a major conversation about Harper's eating. She definitely had changed her eating habits. A few weeks ago she was sick, put on Pedialyte and just didn't eat the same as she did before she was sick. She now spits up/throws up. Makes a momma nervous when she is supposed to be eating major calories each day. The good news? While we were in the Echo and the cardiologist was there (which is rare) Harper spit up/threw up. A lot. Like really a lot. We had a professional witness to what we had been dealing with and wishing to not happen. She determined it was reflux. Now I love my daughter but can I get a "really?" or "seriously?" or a "what else?" This reflux demands another prescription. The pharmacist's at Target know me by name....I'm not kidding.
The other news is that one of her ventricles is still "borderline" and we need to pray that becomes normal before her surgery. Or that it really isn't a problem when the surgery begins. There are many reasons to be worried but this is the main one that is constantly in my mind.
More good news....Harper laughs...at me. Just like everyone else! She thinks her momma is funny and I love that! She is smiling all the time, laughing, and babbling.
For now, life goes on. I continue to worry as I will until we are out of the hospital. I can't help but have visions that something bad will happen but I know that's normal. But I have more visions of bringing my baby home and watching her grow so she can keep laughing at me!
To all of my new followers...welcome and thank you. To all of you have leave comments or send me emails about OHS....thank you and please keep them coming. It may seem silly but reading comments from perfect strangers really helps me be positive. Feel free to pass this blog along to someone else who may enjoy it, someone to say a prayer, or someone that wants to see the cutest baby ever!
Here are a few new pictures for you to enjoy!
