We are still doing good over here. We are still getting adjusted to life with 2 kids, although I know it is going to be a lot more work once my mom leaves and I am on my own. The mornings are always pretty wild and I don't ever feel like I have stuff caught up on until around 2 in the afternoon. Addie had her clinic appointment today. We had another ECHO but no labs and X-ray. Everything looked good and we get to skip a week going to clinic next week. We do have to go in and make sure Addie's incision is healing appropriately though. Speaking of her incision, we did have to go to the ER on Saturday with Addie. She had a suture working its way out and making a little puss spot at the top of her incision. Luckily nothing was infected, and it was a really quick trip. Two trips to the ER in one week is not my idea of fun. I kept joking that we need a punch card for ER trips where you go so many times and get one free at the end. Hopefully we won't have to go again any time soon.

In other notes, my best friend Allison asked me about how things were now compared to how I thought they'd be before I had Addie. I think the biggest thing I was worried about before I had Addie was if I would be worried/scared about her health every day all day. I'm not scared. Don't get me wrong, her diagnosis is scary, but I don't worry about it like I thought I would. I pray more for her and my family than I ever have. I have also learned to take things one day at a time. I haven't thought too much about the future, and right now that is just fine. This whole thing has strengthened Scott and my relationship more than I ever could have imagined. Scott's positive outlook definitely helped me get through some really rough days in the hospital. I also feel a lot more "normal" than I thought I would being Mom to a heart baby. Addie acts like a normal newborn. She eats, she cries, she sleeps, she smiles heavenly little smiles, she just has a few more doctor's appointments and takes medicine unlike most newborns. She is a precious baby and a true gift from God!
