After being told I would never be able to have children, I am now a stay-at-home Mommy to Maddie who happens to have Down Syndrome. I've been married 16 years to my best friend, having the time of my life. Thanks for stopping by and sharing in our little journey through life.

She Has a Good Heart!

Maddie went to see her cardiologist today.  
Not only does she have a good heart spiritually, but physically as well!  

The main issue we've had since she was born is a tiny hole in her heart.  
Although it's not a huge concern, we've been hoping it would close up on its own. 

No such luck.  
Unfortunately it's still there.  

There's nothing that we will do to address the issue while she's young.  
It may cause problems as an adult.  
If she develops migraines or has a stroke, it will have to be surgically closed.  

Other than that, her heart is great!  
She did so well for her appointment today.
After the nurse took her blood pressure she told him thank-you. 
She gave herself a round of applause after sitting so still while the Dr. listened to her heart.
While the ECHO technician was working on getting a reading, Maddie gave her arm a gentle hug. 

A good, good heart indeed!  : )
