Tanya,

Loved the 'hair bow story' what a hoot.

So glad she's doing better. So enjoyed the pictures of the kids, and you too.

Any update on Megan's status? Still on for nov 11hth?

Actually the cath is the 10th, and so far it is still planned. How are things with all of you. Sent an e-mail last week. Megan's having a good week and starting to take tiny little sips of juice! Improvements all the time! Thankfully, I don't think she's swallowed any more hairbows, though! :P

just updated caring bridge......

*****************************************

Just wanted to let everyone know that Megan's heart cath has been postponed until 11/29. They called to change it because of a problem with the cath lab. She will be 3rd case that day, so we don't have to be there until 11 and probably won't start until around 1. I think God needed just a little more time to open up the artery so that a stent won't be needed! Time will tell, but I know that He has a plan in it. Please pray that things go smoothly!

Megan has had a good week and is growing so much. She is really getting upset if I don't give her some of whatever Cole has to eat or drink. She is tasting almost everything I give her now and is drinking tiny amounts. It's so exciting to see the progress.

Hope you all have a great week! Hugs!

Dear TCA,

We are so glad Meg is doing so well! :) She and her brother look like little dolls in their Halloween costumes! It is so encouraging to know that "our baby" as everyone on the thread calls her is tasting! I hope the cath lab goes well. Thank you so much for the pic and update! Keep in touch!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

TCA- Yeah...I'm about 55 pages late into this thread but I have been meaning to read it forever. I just skimmed through (I couldn't go all the way back..... :ph34r: kind of like the OMG thread...) but i just wanted to say, as a fellow gagger and retcher that I am SO glad that she is doing better and is tasting foods (even if she's eating a rainbow ribbon :P ). I cannot begin to imagine what you have been through and how frightening it must have been. You are all so strong.

Many prayers and hugs to you, Megan, Cole and your family. I look forward to hearing more good news! Hugs, Beverly

Thanks for checking in guys. I've been REALLY SICK with a terrible sinus infection. Dr. said today it may take 20-30 days of antibiotics to really knock it out. I haven't been on here in a couple weeks because of it and Thanksgiving. I was just logging in to post my latest from caring bridge. Thanks for the love and concern from you all! I hope all of you are doing well!

Hugs, Tanya

**********************************

Even though I had to take Megan in for an ear infection on Sat., it looks like things are still a go for the heart cath on Wed. (11/29). We all have been sick and I went back for the 3rd time today for the sinus infection that just won't quit, otherwise known as chronic. Hopefully we'll all be up to full speed by Wed., or at least half speed.

We all had a great Thanksgiving with both sides of the family and Megan stole the show with everyone. She is giving kisses to everyone and leaving a big slober trail. She is able to stand now, but fusses if she has to for too long. Her latest game is getting into the cabinets and finding the ziplock bags and distributing them throughout the house from her walker. It really is amazing what she can get into from that thing. Today she also managed to get the aluminum foil out and unravel about 5 feet. She was NOT happy when I took it away.

The plan for Wed. is to attempt to widen her pulmonary arteries with a balloon. If they aren't able to do this, they will put in a stent. I don't like to think about her getting a stent so young, but I will leave it to God to figure out what is needed. If used, the stent will be adjustable in size, so it can be enlarged via heart cath as she grows. If things go as expected, it will be an overnight stay in the hospital.

We will keep the site updated as things progress on Wed. Please check in. We have to be there at 11 and it's planned to start around 1. If she gets sick again, it will be postponed, but for now she's doing pretty good.

Thanks so much for the prayers that have carried her safely thus far. Please continue them this week!!!! Also pray for Dr. Thomas Doyle, the cardiologist doing the procedure. We need God to move his hands perfectly and give him wisdom in his decisions! He is a man of faith, so I know he will appreciate your prayers. I know God holds our precious baby girl in his arms and will carry her safely through.

Love you all.
