Blaise's cardio appointment went very good. He acted very good during it and the worst part was probably having his blood pressure and pulse oc tested, neither of which hurt, he just cried during this. He sat extremely well during the echo. He weighed in at 24 lbs , so still a small guy. His pulse oz ranged from 77-90 and I think they settled on 82. Im guessing when he is calm it runs 84. I always hope for upper 80's though. Dr danford thought he looked good and gave us another nine month pass before the next visit. It sounds like he will have a heart cath next spring and his Fontan surgery next summer. I'm. Not. Ready. Time will fly this next year. We will continue living day by day and try out hardest to not think about it.
We've been busy busy lately. Blaise chats up a storm and is such a copy cat on anything you say or do. He is the light of our lives. He loves giving big hugs and telling you he loves you. He has slept great in his new bed. He loved to be outdoors and help mow or swing or go in his slide. We've been to the pool a few times and he does great. He takes his watering can and fills it up in the pool the goes and dumps it out of the pool.
He can "tell" stories now too. Lately we've been to treynor to help replant, to denison for a baby shower for Jenna and Mitch and pent last weekend in treynor celebrating grandpa and grandma sudmanns 40th wedding anniversary. Blaise loves going with papa to feed horses , ride horses , see pigs and ride in the tractor . His cousins from Aberdeen have each spent a week with grandpa and grandma Hartwell and he had loved playing with Ashlinn and cooper.
We've set a c section date for July 15 at noon . The date is coming fast and we are definitely not ready. I'm trying to soak up every moment with just Blaise and am not ready for thst part to change. No turning back now - let's hope we are all ready! We will update the blog with news as soon as we have any!
