Well, this is my first post on my brand new blog. I only started a blog because I was genuinely jealous of all the other heart mommies that share their stories/updates about their heart babies on blogspot. So I figured...if they can do it, so can I! :)
It is Saturday morning and Scarlett is playing on the floor in her RainForest Gym. She's in the early stages of rolling over, but still hasn't mastered it yet. Yesterday was her 5-month birthday. She is getting big (and loud!). I am so lucky that she is doing great (heart-wise).
Her next surgery will probably be sometime in late August, or maybe even September. She has her cardiac catheterization scheduled for August 11th at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center.
I will be really glad after her second surgery because I still feel like she is a fragile little bubble. Seeing as she has an artificial piece of plastic implanted in her heart keeping her alive, that BT shunt that could clog any time, therefore I live in constant fear (well, maybe not CONSTANT, but ever present) that I will have to rush her to the ER at any moment.
Being a working-mommy doesn't help alleviate my fear either. I find myself calling the babysitter at least twice a day just to check on her. Luckily she is doing awesome, and I am truly grateful and thank God everyday that he keeps her in my life. :)
Thank you for reading my inaugural post. Obviously more to come!
