Good News All Around

Both my boys are doing well! DB and Samuel are happy and mending... which means I am happy!

George and Olivia are doing great too, but they didn't have any medical stuff this week :)

DB is recovering nicely from his heart catheter procedure on Tuesday, sore and tired but overall okay. We received good news from the procedure! His "numbers" are still bad, which we knew, and which was a final confirmation of surgery this summer. But, the other things they were measuring and looking for were all good. The pressures in his heart look okay, there does not appear to be any damage to his heart or its surroundings, and there also does not appear to be any blockages. These three things were excellent pieces of news!

The other neat thing is that they were able to get to DB's heart through two points, one up through his wrist and one down through his neck. This means they didn't have to go through his leg! Recovery time was shorter and the risks were less - yea! He is pretty sore, but we are very happy with the news.

Thank you so much for your prayers and words of encouragement!
