It’s been a while…

Hi!  It’s been quite a while since I’ve updated this blog.  Luke is no longer “babyluke” but instead a rambunctious 5-year old who started kindergarten this year.  His heart check-ups have been really good with minimal changes over the years.  He does have a mildly leaky aortic valve for which he takes a medication called Enalapril every 12 hours (7am and 7pm).  Our cardiologist put him on the medication when he was 2 because studies show lowering the pressures in the heart can help preserve the valve function.  Other than that he is doing really well.  I can’t say I don’t worry… a lot.  However, I know that it’s normal.  I never hesitate to call or visit the cardiologist if I’m worried about something as I’d rather have my mind put at ease.  Luckily we’ve got a really wonderful doctor who takes my concerns seriously and talks me down when I need it.  Ha!

Anyhow, here are some updated photos of our precious Luke and family.  Since I last posted we’ve added another baby girl to our family.  Both of our girls are heart healthy!

If you’ve found this blog because you’re just starting your “heart mom or dad” journey please don’t hesitate to contact me.  There is a great, wonderful, caring heart parent community out there I’d love to introduce you to.  God bless.

  1. Yeah! So great to see Luke growing up. I hope he is enjoying Kindergarten. I just updated Jacob’s blog the other day after a year of not posting anything too. I still need to write about his cardiology visit from December. Your girls are so cute, congrats. Hugs to you and your family!
