Our girl is a champ at doctor’s visits. This bodes well for her.
She did so well at her cardiologist visit, her doctor loved her; But there were some small surprises.
M apparently does not have the condition the doctors in China thought she did, but instead has something a little more complex, which, from what I can tell from the doctor speak (in all fairness, he tried, and did, a very good job explaining everything. It’s not his fault I didn’t understand it all), and the in-depth pictures he drew for us, means that there are more holes and blockages than we thought. The surgery is a little bit more involved, and there will be one valve that will remain leaky.
He said her particular condition and the shape her heart is in, is quite severe, and she will need her surgery sooner, rather than later, as she will begin to deteriorate quickly without it.
So…surgery is scheduled for October 4th. That’s two weeks away.
I will admit, I am a little nervous. Nervous about my girl being able to understand what is going on, but not worried. In spite of all the reasons I have to worry I am surprised to find that I am not… Especially surprised because this is what I do, the worry, and I know that I am not accomplishing this peace and calm by myself. I know who is in control here, and it is not me. I know HE loves our girl, and has big plans for her!
