A week at home

Ethan has been home for a week now and he is doing beautifully. he has seen his pediatrician, Dr. Fidone twice for weight checks and he has made the trip back down to Houson to see his cardiologist, Dr. Altman once. Last Thursday he had an EKG and chest xrays to check for any progress of heart failure symptoms. So far so good. There has been no change. He was places on a Holter monitor for 24 hours and we should get the results from that on Thursday when we go back to Houston for another EKG, xrays (maybe) and an Echocardiogram to check for progress. He is up to 7lbs 6 oz as of yesterday morning. We are truly blessed! I'll try to keep it updated better since we have aclimated to being at home a little better now. Elise has Little Drillteam camp this week and Craig starts preschool next week (on Wednesday).
