So, we are a bit on an emotional roller coaster right now. Addison is doing well her heart function is "low-normal" as her Cardiologist, Dr. Chang described. However, he is concerned that her mitral valve leak has not gotten any better.
He informed us today to expect her to go back to surgery in 3-6 months from today. Then, later in the appointment, he said MARCH!!! Yes, March. I was in such shock that I could not even cry, I had this stupid look on my face like, "did he just say that?"
After the appointment we took Addi to the lab to get blood drawn, I was still in shock and it slowly started to hit me that this could actually be our reality. Tears started to roll down my face as I relived our 5 week heart repair ordeal 5 months ago. Then I caught Addi looking at me with her little Addi gaze. I wiped the tears from my cheek and smiled at her, she smiled back. Then I realize that I can be the Eeyore mom about all this or the Tiger mom. I know that if I cry and whine about this, it only makes it harder on Addi.
Please pray for Addi's sickness to be healed and for Jesse and I to make wise decisions.
Jesse, Nicole and Addison
