Today I spoke with Dr. Mike's office. He has been stalking our hospital notes, and he couldn't believe that Lincoln was really functioning with half of a valve. An 8mm hole for his blood to flow through instead of 16mm! And then they were asking how the doctors knew. It all started with RSV/pneumonia visit. They wanted to check and ensure it wasn't endocarditis. So they caught sight of his numbers elevated even more than they were a few weeks before his illnesses. And wanted a follow-up appointment. Which led us to surgery. And probably prevented him having a heart-failure surgery in the middle of the night without our A-team scheduled. The people I trust with his life.
Sometimes miracles happen in crappy circumstances that lead to His grace. Lincoln was functioning with half of a valve, not gaining weight, and still smiling every day. That is the true essence of a warrior. Battling through pain, failure, and adversity to survive. I could not be more proud of him and his CHD journey. This toddler is not only a warrior, but survived
insurmountable odds. CHD sucks, but With God's Grace & Miraculous Ways, Lincoln's hot mess of a heart is still God's masterpiece. Xoxo
