Healthy As Can Be!

Yesterday we had to take Chloe in for her appointment with the children's heart specialist so they could run a couple tests on Chloe and do an ultrasound of her heart to make sure the heart murmur she has is nothing serious. I was so nervous and sad for my sweet Chloe but she did amazing! She was as happy as can be kicking her little legs and arms and smiling away at the nurse and doctor. The doctor listened to Chloe's heart and asked us a couple questions, like if Chloe had a difficult time breathing or becomes sweaty and lethargic while nursing. We said no. He said it sounds like Chloe's heart murmur is nothing to worry about but wanted to still have her get an ultrasound done to bee 100 % sure.  During the ultrasound I got to hold Chloe in my arms and she quickly fell asleep, I was so relieved that she was able to rest for a bit.

After the ultrasound the doctor came in to look at the pictures of Chloe's heart, he told us we have nothing to worry about, that our daughter is as healthy as can be. He said that Chloe has a small hole but that over time it should close and that it wont cause her any trouble now or later in life. Mike and I were so relived when the doctor told us the good news!! I quickly scooped my baby up in my arms and gave her lots of kisses all over and told her "your as healthy as can be".

I am beyond grateful to God that my sweet Chloe is healthy and that this wont affect her in any way!! I cant imagine how hard it must be on parents when they find out their baby has a health issue. I can only imagine how incredibly terrifying and stressful that would be. I pray that all the family's going through something like this would come to know Jesus and that he would give them peace and comfort. I pray that they give all their burdens to God. Jesus will never turn his back on you, and will always be waiting with open arms, always!
