Summertime for Seraph!!
I think Seraph is entering a summer vacation period of her life. If we can keep her from getting sick, she won't need to go to the hospital for a whole year!! She needs to gain atleast 10 more lbs before they'll think about doing her third open heart surgery. (She's 22 lbs and 20 months old now) She's soooo close to walking on her own. Soon we'll be chasing her all around the house. She's even trying to figure out how to go up the stairs. Still not much progress on overcoming her oral aversions long enough to eat.
Dr. Cardiology wants to see her again in 6 months. He wants us to keep the blowby oxygen on her. He wants to know if she gets sick - especially if it's something that will change her fluid intake/outtake balance like the flu. Flu very, very bad.
We're still being careful for RSV/flu season. Sexy Haqon and I are excited for this Summer. Seraph will be able to walk! Her twin cousins will be coming to visit! We'll be able to take all the kids out to places like the zoo! Haqon *might* even be able to convince me to take everyone on a family trip.
We've plans to live it up and party this Summer.....and I gotta say I am sooooooooooooooooo looking forward to it.
So, if you come to visit, don't bring a cold/sickness. I wanna keep my baby home this year :) Maybe I'll make one of those signs: 95 days with no ICU!!
