Second Time Around

Earlier this month we ventured back to the Stollery Children's Hospital. As most of you know, in February Sawyer was diagnosed with Pulmonary Stenosis, a heart condition affecting the transfer of blood from his heart to his lungs. This time the procedures were familiar, a heart echo followed by an EKG and finally a consult with the pediatrician.

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.
