GI doctor- CLEARED!

Austin saw Dr. King today (GI/stomach doctor) and all is good! He cleared Austin to only come back on a "as needed" basis! We were thrilled with this and what a blessing to know Austin is doing so well! Dr. King was very pleased with Austin's growth and overall health... so we're good to go!

Stay tuned for more updates... in the meantime, here are a few prayer requests...
-Austin's next appointment with Dr. Colvin (cardiologist) is in March. Be praying for this appointment and what lies ahead for Austin.
-As Austin gets older we're getting closer to his third surgery. Join us as we're already praying for this process, where it will take place (Memphis), Austin's overall health going into surgery, the surgery itself, and his recovery. We'll keep you updated once we know more about this... it will probably be sometime over the next year.
-Also, join us in praying for a friend of Austin's. When Austin was in NICU at UAB, we had the privilege of sharing our journey with two other families who were also walking through the HLHS journey. One of these little boys, Mitchell, is having a hard time right now, physically, he has been in and out of Children's Hospital lately. Join us as we pray for Mitchell, and for his family!

Thank you!!! We couldn't do this without you!

Hi there. I found your blog through Emma Kate's blog and wanted to introduce myself since our boys are two days apart with similar heart defects! Our son, Luke, was born on January 9, 2007 with a single ventricle (we did know about his CHD before he was born). He is missing his right ventricle and has had two open heart surgeries and will have the Fontan in about 18 months from now.

Your Austin is so precious and I am thankful to read how well he is doing.

It's a strange place to be waiting for the third surgery, especially since our boys will be so much older and more aware of what's happening. There are days when I wish we could go tomorrow to get it over with!

Happy Birthday Austin and keep doing great!!!

Jesse (Luke's mom)
