Little Miss Caroline had her post Glenn check up at our new cardiologist's office on the 20th of July. We were forced to wait as long as we did because Tricare is so on top of their game. Before this appointment, we were introduced to our new pediatrician (and PCM) who I have deemed unfit for all. She is a whole new story...and I won't be sidetracked again. So Dr. Carr, the cardiologist. I arrived at the appointment overly prepared, defensive, and on edge. My full intention was to ask for a referral out to the Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters. He turned out very knowledgeable, straightforward, and a bit intense. Just how I like em'. The visit went smoothly, with Parker playing with toys and enjoying young intern conversations. Caroline was in an incredibly good mood (which means she'll scream like a lunatic next time), and even the echo went over without so much as a fuss. We left on a single dose of aspirin daily...and that's it. She really rocked the Glenn. I am so happy that we were fortunate to have a positive outcome. She is blessed. No, we are blessed. Each day is a blessing, and I try really hard to slow down often and kiss on her and just say thank you. Now, here is my chance to apologize for not updating sooner. We have been traveling, sans Dada. Not really the best excuse, because I didn't update when I was at home either. The new house is becoming "home", and Matthew is getting settled into the new job. So, I'm sorry. There. I said it. Now that my head is firmly re-attached to my body, it won't be so long in between posts. Plus, we have so much to catch up on.
