Typical Toddler Stuff and then some

Connie didn't have any appetite this morning or at lunch. Greg and I started to worry, thinking that something might be going on with his heart. The appetite has been a tell tale sign all summer. After his nap, he ate two bags of lay's potato chips and most of a cereal bar. Now he's finishing up a hot dog with the bun and some chocolate milk. Guess he's just being picky!

We saw Dr. Bradley (EP) while we were in the playroom and he said Connie needs to be interrogated again tomorrow since they made some changes to his pacer. He said that his atrial lead "isn't as good" as it was when we came in. Sometimes surgery can do that. I asked if that meant we had to have another surgery to replace the lead and he said he isn't sure yet. He just wants to interrogate it first and then maybe we can just wait and see.

We ran into Dr. Bove in the hall on the way to the Med Inn and he asked if Connie has had his echo yet. I said no, that it was scheduled for tomorrow. I said, I'll be interested to see what's going on with that left ventricle. He said, "You and me both."

Please pray that Connie's atrial lead to his pacemaker is secure and working efficiently and does not need to be replaced. Replacing it would require opening the chest again. Also pray that the tubes have stopped draining enough to be pulled tomorrow and we can proceed with getting home.

We won't even go there about the leads. Let's just think of going home. Prayers for continued improvement and NO setbacks!

I agree with the previous comment! 'No setbacks' prayers going up now for Connie!
