The Lord is amazing!!!
We went to see a pediatric cardiologist at UAB today!
We knew this appointment wasnt going to rule out Tri-18 but we we're hopeful for some kind of good news! This appointment was to figure out what kind of heart defect Tate has. Sometimes you can tell if the heart defect is caused by a chromosomal problem or just a normal congenital heart defect. We'll what Tate has is called a AV canal. It is common in a healthy baby and a Trisomy baby. So that didnt really help us know if this was a Tri-18 problem. We always knew that his heart was "fixable". If he doesnt have Tri-18 then he wont have to have surgery til hes 2 months! David and I just went on to ask a few questions and David remembered last week we were told that Tate's heart valves were going the WRONG way. Well this week he said the heart valves going the RIGHT way!!!! I just smiled. I couldnt believe after all this bad news we were finally getting some GOOD news!!!
I prayed before we went in, that the Lord would just give us some kind of good news. I cant take anymore bad! I feel the Lord knows that Ive had my share of bad lately and it was just time to show me that HE IS STILL IN CONTROL and He hears my prayers!
I want someone to tell me prayer doesnt work!!!
I know the Lord is capable of anything! I know we dont have an answer yet with Tri-18 but today I had a good day! One day at a time!!! We now know that instead of heart surgery for Tate within days of his life we can wait til hes 2 months.
Thank you Thank you for all your prayers!!!! Keep them coming!
