The thing that struck me the most was how blessed I am to have so many people surrounding Don and I with prayer. There were people there that I didn't even realize knew about Nate, who told me that they were praying for us.
For the record, I drive with my cell on vibrate on my lap too!!! (Had to be there!)
Tomorrow we are taking Nate to see the pediatric cardiologist, Dr. Soni, again. They plan to do another echocardiogram and a ECG. We feel a lot more prepared for this visit, as we've had 3 months to learn and try to understand exactly what his condition is. Now we know more of what to ask, and instead of being bombarded by explanations and terms that were foreign to us, we hope getting a better grasp on his specific diagnosis. More prepared, but still just as nervous. Here are a few specific prayer requests:
- Nate will need to lie very still for the echo, about 30-40 minutes. At 6 weeks he did great, but now he's a lot more active. Pray that he will be relaxed and content.
- Just thinking about walking into those doors again at the heart clinic makes my eyes tear up....pray that I will be strong and in control of my emotions, especially when talking to the Dr. after all the tests.
- Pray for a miracle. That Nate's heart would be healed. That there would be no other explanation but 'GOD'!!
Thanks for your prayers, I'll update the blog when we get back tomorrow!
