The power of prayer is an amazing thing . . . consider me on the prayer list -- may your family be blessed with the healing of your son.

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day that says, "I'll try tomorrow".

"There's not a word yet, for old friends we've just met. Part Heaven, part space, or have I found my place? You can just visit, but I plan to stay, I'm going to go back there some day." Gonzo, in the Muppet Movie

OK.. we are back from the doctors. Took a long time. The cardiologist said he is fine. The dialated aorta is still there, but on the Z scale ( um not quite sure what that is ) Colin is at a 3. A dangerous level is a 6 or more. He has been hanging on a 3 for a while now.

He had a rough time with the ultrasound. He was great in the beginning. Just watching the tech and seeing the screen, watching his heart beat. Then all of a sudden he started to cry out, such a heart wrenching cry, I almost started to cry. I just wanted to pick him up and comfort him. I am sure all you mothers out there know how I felt. Even though there is no pain in the procedure. He was scared and it ripped me to shreds.

But its all over. We dont have to go back to the cardiologist for 6 months this time! The first time was 3 months, the second 4 months, now 6!! moving right along!

Fiddle- I dont know how you did it with your child. I give you such great credit for going thru what you did.
I know how a sick child can make you feel and its a tough thing to go thru.

Thank you to everyone who said a prayer for Colin. Obviously they all helped!!! :)

You're doing pretty much the same things I did--go to the doctor, get nervous, fall apart when the baby cries, etc.

Did you ever find out why he cried?

No, he just got upset. He didnt like being held there I imagine. When he was just a baby, 3 months early, he was a lot more cooperative with all their procedures. Now that he is getting older he realizes what is going on around him. And he just plain old doesnt like it!!!
