It's official! I no longer have a cardiologist! My ECHO came back beautifully. My cardiologist entered the office and announced that everything looked fantastic and that there was absolutely NO fluid left around my heart. It appears that delivery finally resolved the remaining part of my condition. We are SO relieved, and were so excited for these special people to meet the little life they saved.
|Waiting for Dr. R and our Nurse to come visit.|
|Ethan went straight to her. He grinned and laughed and reached for her as soon as she said hello. It was almost as if he remembered her voice.|
|Lots of love given to a very special woman.|
|We have been so blessed with such amazing care.|
Our hopes were that we would win our unemployment case and follow it with this appointment, providing complete and absolute closure to this horrible year. We've been waiting so long for these moments to let us know that the chaos is officially behind us, but of course that isn't the case yet. Instead I left feeling uplifted, and hopeful that instead of a final moment in this turmoil, we had experienced our first moment of things turning around for us. We went to Nashville in hopes of searching for our ending, but came back feeling that we had found a new beginning instead. We've always been told that when one door closes, another one opens, but maybe doors don't have to be closed for new ones to open up. Maybe sometimes we don't have to experience closure in order to experience a new beginning. Maybe sometimes they just flow together, and we are able to move forward into them anyway.
Yesterday marks the day of a new beginning. We are starting fresh with our family. Good things are going to happen.
