She's done it again!

Olivia had yet another awesome report from the doctors yesterday! We went to see Dr. Shah (cardiologist) for our post-hospitalization follow-up. He was soooooo pleased with how well she is doing. She had an echo done and it looked awesome. Her heart function is awesome and her pulmonary pressures are starting to come down. Her liver has shrunk considerably (a good thing) and we will go back at the end of October for another office visit!
We are still trying to get her blood thinner numbers in order, but she hasn't had to have any more Lovenox shots since Friday. Woohoo!
She is still deciding not to sleep. I don't know what the deal is. I don't think she has her days and nights mixed up, because she is up most of the day. Hopefully she gets thing straightened out soon.
Tomorrow is the big day - Olivia turns two! She's so excited for her party on Saturday. Don't forget - you're all invited! Drop me an email if you'd like to stop by!

That title had me worried there for a minute, but it was good news this time, thank God!! Wow, I'm so glad you got such a great report. What a blessing that the trial of that last heart surgery is really paying off and that her heart is functioning well!
Happy Birthday sweet girl! We love you!
