Well, this morning was Abigail's appointment with the cardiologist. The only test the doctor had ordered was an EKG. Abigail has become terrified of doctor's offices due to one too many trips to the pediatrician! When we put her on the table, she immediately burst into tears! She has associated the tables/beds at the doctor's office with getting shots! So, Daddy held Abigail in his lap and held her arms, while I held her legs and sang "The Wheels on The Bus!" Thankfully this technique did the trick! However, Abigail was happy when the EKG was over and said, "all done!"
- I am thankful that Abigail did not have to have this PDA fixed when she was born. I'm not sure I could have taken her being put under weighing less than 2 lbs. The Lord kept his promise in not giving me more than I could bare!
- I am thankful that Abigail did not have to have the PDA fixed when she was about 5 lbs. Abigail's oxygen sats were not 100%. We were also making frequent trips to the eye doctor, which was traumatic enough!
- I am thankful that Abigail needed to have tubes put in her ears because that helped prepare us for any future surgeries.
- I am thankful that Abigail is 20 lbs., strong, & healthy! Abigail has caught up and exceeded developmentally!
