1st Cardio visit in 3 months...

It is hard to believe that 9 months ago we were in such a rough place with Abi, waiting all day in the waiting room while she underwent her first open heart surgery (Double Switch and VSD closure) and now were are 'celebrating' a 5-month-iversary of her 2nd OHS that took place in March.
It seems like it was longer than that. I remember that we were not expecting to hear any bad news at the follow-up checkup (2 months after the surgery), though we had noticed her faster breathing and 3 weeks later we were back in Atlanta.
Every time we go to see the cardiologist, I experience a mixture of emotions. I am anxious to hear everything looks great and there haven't been any changes. I want to hear the guarantee that she'll be fine from now on and the previous experiences are in the past, never to be repeated.
We do not anticipate any surprising news tomorrow. We diligently observe Abi's reactions, food intake and behavior. She seems to have unlimited supplies of energy, eats for two and is always in a good mood.

We are looking forward to the great report tomorrow. We'll update the blog with the news that the next cardiologist appointment is in 6 MONTHS!!??? ;)...

That would be sweet....
