Weekly Cardiology Check-up

Every Friday Cain has a follow-up appointment with his cardiologist. This appointment was no different than any other. Cain weighed 14lbs 9 ounces and was 24 1/4 inches long. Brad has been saying all along that he hoped Cain would be 15lbs by the time of his 2nd surgery and it looks like this will happen.

Even though this appointment was the same as all of Cain's previous appointments, I left this appointment very sad. Much of the discussions during Cain's appointment were regarding his upcoming surgery. I can't believe it's already time for his next surgery. Lately, I have had to keep myself very busy. Otherwise, I don't think I could "hold myself together". I am constantly thinking of his surgery...day and night.

Today I spent the entire morning talking with blood banks and BCBS regarding Direct Donor Blood Donations for Cain. I now know much more about blood donations than I ever thought I would. We have all the donors we need and we couldn't be more grateful to each of you for doing this for Cain.

I plan to post a blog very soon to describe exactly what will take place during Cain's surgery. I know many of you want to know.


"Not another EKG mom! Why do I have to have so many of these?"

I love this little guy SO much!
