a quick little note

i just thought i'd post a little reminder that we're heading to toronto tomorrow for a full, sedate echo (full echos can take over an hour at the best of times) and to see the cardiologist.

i'm not anticipating much in the way of good news from dr russell tomorrow. well, no, she'll say that clearly he doesn't have CHF now. but that much i know already. she will say, however, that given his size and the scare he gave us all recently, that it's time to go ahead with the Fontan and arch reconstruction. (this means two separate surgeries, a week apart. one where they cool him so that his blood doesn't circulate at all while they work, and the other is open heart, which will include time on bypass.) the good news we could get is that they will forego the cath, since he just had one in april. that would be lovely.

please pray for us as we travel, for the other kids as they spend the day with my parents, and for ed and i as we spend a stressful day in toronto. i'll post when we get home and let you know how it went. thanks so much.
