Doctor, Doctor

Well another doctor appointment came and went. This was a "high-risk" follow-up appointment. It was set up during our time in the NICU and was a heart doctor visit. We were scheduled to have an EKG and an Electrocardiogram to be sure that Mason's heart is working according to design.

With that, the little man ended up looking like this.................
Yeah, that is about 12 cords attached by 3M tape sensors to the little man. He kind of looks a little like a Terminator's arm here, but he handled it like a champ. Though the look on his face in this photo is one of "someone please explain what is going on here in a language I can understand," he settled down long enough for the doctors to get the information they needed.

Then the doctor came in and listened to his heart after the EKG and determined that there was no reason to do an Echocardiogram as she heard nothing that made her believe that the PDA was still open in his heart.

This was a HUGE answer to prayer as this was one of the real pitfalls that we thought we would be encountering time and again. To dodge this one, after ALL the others, is only the hand of God.

Julie took a few other great photos that I want to post here;

This is while he is in his car seat. The cover keeps him warmer and tends to sheild him from wind and bright light.

He has taken to look up as us while we hold him. For me, it is one of the most amazing moments I have ever had and the fact that they continue is simply incredible to me.

I love the photos where he holds hands. This one was perfect and Julie caught it beautifully.

I hope this finds everyone well and thank you all for the prayers and well wishes. Talk to you all very soon!
