We had a great visit last Friday :) His echo went as well as I expected (took 2 doses of sleepy medicine and he STILL woke up during the procedure. But his doc feels that he is doing great and we don't have to go back until August!! Now we can relax and focus on his 1st birthday coming in a few weeks... and my 1st Mother's Day this weekend.


  1. Hi! I found your blog by accident looking for information about the Fontan to post on MY blog! My daughter is 4 1/2 and had a lot of heart surgeries at birth and is about to have the last of 6! The Fontan! I am currently reading your story and wanted to say that your little guy will be in our prayers! What a CUTIE PIE! Feel free to check out my blog as well! :) Sharon Swan

  2. What a charming little fella! Happy for all of you that everything is going great!
