This morning was Andrew's appointment with the heart specialist. We left as soon as Hunter got on the bus an we made the 1 1/2 hour trip. This doctor is located in Louisville KY but makes the trip once a month across the state for children in this area. We really don't know alot about everything yet. He had his chest x-ray earlier in the week and it was fine. Today he had an EKG, and an ultrasound of the heart. Andrew will have to wear an Event Recorder at least for the next 30 days. The doctor said he may need it for 60 days but we will start with 30. So he will have to wear this 24 hours a day for 30 days. When his heart starts acting up he is to push a button and it will record the activity then it is called in to Life Watch. My brother has the same problem that Andrew does and he has to take medication the rest of his life. But this doctor told me today that this problem can be fixed now days. I told him we would just wait and discuss all of this after we get the results back. When you start surgically messing with the heart or brain, it scares me. His heart will speed up extremely fast with chest pain, dizziness, and weakness. Than after a little while all goes back to normal. The doctor said hopefully, we can get this taken care of before it does any major wear on his heart. He is only 15 so I really want something done now before it gets worse. Oh, the Event Recorder will be delivered by UPS in about a week.
Here is a photo of him this morning as we went through the drive thru at Burger King. He did not want his photo taken.
And here is a cute little photo of him getting his ultrasound. When she put the gel on the end of it and stuck it to his chest she said "Oh, it's a GIRL!!!" He was so embarrassed! He will kill me for putting this photo on here.
As we left the clinic we drove by the park. This photo doesn't show up very well buth there are tons of flowers growing there. It was so pretty.
Here are some fabrics that I purchased today. I bought 1/2 yard of each. I will just throw them in with my stash for something new.
And last but not least, here is a little fleece throw that I embroidered for Chantal's little poodle puppy, Zoey! Chantal treats here like a baby and she loves fleece throws and tries to drag the around so I made this one smaller so she can handle it better.
About all for now, probably won't get alot done tonight. I am so tired and I still need to plant some tomatoes.
