Fast forward one year...
I am planning Ivy's 4th Birthday!!!! She turned 2, she turned 3, and now, she is turning 4. I know, it seems silly, but these years are huge miracles and even more so, they are gifts! Today we spent 3 hours with our cardiologist. We discussed all the details of her Cath last month. She had her scheduled Echo. We made some med changes. And we marveled in the miracle of this child! She is GROWING!! I mean really really growing! She has a pretty full face that could use some diuretics right now and we did start those today, but her body, it is real growth!! Not water... it's real baby fat and 1.5 inches of new height!! She is active and happy and just such a ball of fun!!!
Her heart function continues to show improvement. And as long as it stays on that curve, even if it is a slow traveling curve, it is awesome. Her increased Pulmonary Hypertension is concerning, but they still feel that as her heart function continues to improve, so will her lungs. They have decided to keep her on her current PH medication, increasing the dose as she grows. WE ARE REJOICING!!! THINGS ARE SO GOOD!
On to Easter :) The hunt! Ivy's pants were falling off. They were a sweet hand me up from a friend who's daughter wore them like 30 years ago (not kidding!) Isn't that amazing? They are a 12 months but the waist was just too big so she looks like she has no feet in this picture.
Lexi as an egg head! She found all the big eggs and said, "Daddy, you can find the rest, oh, and good luck!"
Her squishy face!
Ellie, my oldest daughters dog. Sweetest doggy ever! Loves coming to our house and playing with the littles.
