Got ees good.

All dee time.  (says an African Pastor via my friend Joy)

The pulmonary artery going from Katie's heart to her left lung is "kinked", sort of like a garden hose.  And, like a garden hose, the kink is making the flow loud, but the important part is that all of the blood that is supposed to be going to the left lung is getting there.  As she grows, she'll get more room in her chest cavity and it should allow the blood vessel to spread out a little and unkink.  We go back in a year to check it out. 

The answered prayer that I didn't even know I was praying?  The cardiologist mentioned that when our pediatrition called him, they had JUST had a cancellation and we got that slot.  Otherwise, the next available appointment would have been late August.  Pretty sure I would have been a wreck for the rest of the summer if we would have had to wait that long.

:D :D :D tears flow and prayers ascend. Amazing how deeply I can care about people I've never met!

If it makes you feel any better (which it probably won't, but I'll try), I had a heart murmur as a baby--no lingering effects whatsoever, just outgrew it, like they think Katie will. The other thing I want to say is that you have really gorgeous babies :)

I had comments to respond to! Please forgive me, I don't know how I missed them. :)

<3 Gauntlets and Shrew.
And Reb. Mary, it does make me feel a little bit better - especially the part about my beautiful babies.
