Noah's Heart Update

Noah had his first appointment with his new cardiologist in Abilene. This new Doctor, Dr. Day, is part of the same group of doctors as the first cardiologist we saw at Children's. Seeing Dr. Day will allow us to do these routine appointments in Abilene instead of Dallas. Yeah! He had a great check up. His oxygen level continues to be in the upper 90's, he has had no blue spells, and his heart rate was good. Also, he weighed in at 9lbs and 2 oz!! I am not suprised since I spend a good part of my day and night feeding my growing boy. It is great that he is eating well and gaining weight. We discussed a surgery date with the Dr. He says that as long as Noah continues to do so well and gain weight he thinks the surgery will be performed when Noah is 3 months old. He will be 3 months old on October 21. So we are to talk with our families and see when the best time would be. When we see the doctor in a month we will give him a date range that looks convenient for us and he will schedule the surgery.
Praise the Lord that Noah is doing so well! God is always good. Please keep praying for Noah's healing.
