I went to Dr. Lane the other day for my follow-up, and got pretty good news. She reviewed my last Echo and said that everything looked ok. She can definitely see the regurgitation, but she can't hear it. The regurgitation hasn't progressed, so that is good. There's no time table yet for future surgery, so yay. My next appointment is in Oct, when I go back for my Echo, and this time, it'll be a stress one so she can try to hear the regurgitation. Also, I'll have blood work a few weeks prior so that she can review that. She also wants that stress Echo because she says my heart rate is still low. It always has been, or at least, since I've been aware of my condition.
I explained my concern for the kids' hearts, and she is going to see them this summer. She wants each of them to have an Echo so she can rule out heart issues for them. So please pray that they get good results!
That's about all I have for now. I'll update with anything else later...

Baby Avery went to be with Jesus on Jan 3rd. It's been a very sad time for my family, but their faith really helps ease the pain. I don't know how anyone ever gets over losing a child-as a matter of fact, I'm sure one never does.
I've got my nails done (Jamberry-style) for Valentine's/Go Red Day/Month/etc. Go Red Day is tomorrow, and since I'll be working and not wearing red clothes, the nails and my red dress pin will be my red...the heart walk is on Mar 7th, and so is the Heart and Sole walk. I'm going to do the Heart and Sole, I think, for Avery and all the other little heart patients. That's the plan. Also, the kids are participating in Jump Rope for Heart. They're collecting donations and jumping in memory of Avery.
Anyway, that's all I've got tonight. I have an appt with my cardiologist on Feb 23rd, so I'll update then. Night...
