Waiting for the consult, I looked around the waiting room hoping that in a few moments the doctor would tell us that Sawyer's condition had improved and that we would be able to forego any future trips to the cardiac unit. This was not the case. The doctor informed us that his condition has become slightly more exaggerated and although surgery is not needed at this stage it may be needed at some distant time down the road.
And, again it needs to be said that we are thankful to God for His provision and goodness. We are overwhelmed by the knowledge and friendliness of the Stollery staff and we are grateful that Sawyer can receive such outstanding medical care.
Another appointment has been booked for July.

Height: 23 inches
Stollery: Smooth sailing on his second visit to the Stollery Children's Hospital. He was a rock star. Even with doctors, nurses and technicians poking and prodding he was a content baby. It's just too bad that good behaviour doesn't keep us from heading back for another echo and EKG in a few months.
Little explorer: First Campfire. Rachel and Robin, the lovely people downstairs, kindly put a fire pit in the backyard. We've enjoyed one evening of flickering flames and good conversations so far and we're excited for what the summer evenings are going to bring.
First: Sleeping for 5 hours at night! I'll gladly take this over 45 min at a time. I had almost forgotten what sleep felt like.
Words: No distinguishable sounds yet but lots of cooing. He takes after his mom as he is always eager to chat.

Newest tricks: Sawyer spends a considerable amount of time laughing with his dad. Nothing is more precious than his little giggles and ear to ear smiles!
