Procedure Scheduled

Kian's procedure is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. on June 22nd. The cardiologist first told the hospital the wrong time frame and our appointment was to be much later this month. Chas spent some time yesterday clearing it up. We both breathed a sigh of relief that it was sooner. Still, it is going to be a very long two weeks.

I'm second guessing everything right now: Is he breathing too hard? Why is crying? Is he in pain? Is it his heart? We don't have much to look for in the way of symptoms. The cardiologist suggested "crying."

Um, he's a newborn; they do that frequently ma'am.

Chas used the phrase "ticking time-bomb" to describe the situation. As in, it could have gone off at anytime in the future and we wouldn't have known why. It's better that it's been diagnosed so that we can treat it, as frightening as it is for us.

I think we both feel like we're running a race to save Kian. I feel breathless half the time.

Our thoughts are with you and your family, Holley. It must be so difficult but at least it was caught early.
