Well, it's been a rough couple of days around here. Josie had her one month post-op check-up with the cardiologist yesterday. It turns out her pulmonary hypertension is back with a vengence.
At this point, it is being attributed to an airway obstruction (not heart problems, thank heavens) so she has an appointment to see an ENT doctor in a few days to talk about tonsils, adnoids and other fun things like that. In the meantime, she's sporting her oxygen cannula around the clock again. Poor thing! While the cannula is not exactly at the height of fall fashion trends, Josie hasn't let it stop her from enjoying her daily activities like...
Leg Lifts (this kid has abs of steel)
Enthusiastically cheering for the ceiling fan
And just sittin' around being cute!
(Don't worry Ya Ya - I fixed her ear so it won't stay that way)
We have the utmost confidence that we will find a simple resolution to her breathing problems and that Josie will work really hard to eat well and gain weight so she can achieve her developmental milestones and continue to thrive.
Besides, what's there to worry about when Aunt Leanne prays for her every day? She's got some extra pull with the Big Guy Upstairs - this much I know!
