Happy Heart

Sophia was born with a VSD (hole between two chambers of the heart). When she was less than a year old, the hole closed rapidly, but not entirely. So today, we had what we were hoping to be her last cardiologist appointment. We prepared her ahead of time by telling her she would get to have stickers and wires all over her tummy. She was SO EXCITED to go the heart doctor, and told everyone she was gonna have "stickers and fire on her tummy!"

Hooking up for the EKG

So happy about all the stickers and wires!

She had to lay very still during the EKG. She did excellent!

After we were finished, she wanted them to put the stickers and wires back on! It went to fast for her.

The Dr concluded that she does still have a teeny tiny hole, but it is nothing to worry about at all. She asked us to come back when she is six to another check up.

I don't think I knew this about Sophia. That must be so hard for you, I was tearing up just reading about it. Glad to hear it's nothing to worry about, and that Sophia was having fun.

Praise God for His mercy on Sophie in His healing of the hole in her heart and for the warm and loving heart that He put in place in our precious "Foofy". What a special little person she is.
LOVE YOU FOOFY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That first photo brought tears to my eyes. I remember that.
God is so good.
Also, I LOVE that you had the foresight to take photos of the whole process. Sophia will like to see them when she's older.
I love you. Both.
