Well, Dr. Bromberg was at SLCH on Weds for conference and he picked up all of Connie's records from his cath and other labs. He forwarded them on to Michigan for Dr. Bove's review. On Thursday, he got a note from Dr. Bove that he agreed that it was time to replace the conduit. How's that for fast?! Soon, we should be hearing from someone in scheduling at Mott and then we'll go from there. Greg was able to find an Ann Arbor hotel that was willing to barter some of his goodie boxes for a room. They even have 24 hour shuttle service to the hospital and are only three miles away! What a blessing that we don't have to worry about that huge added expense.

Connie was able to get in two naps Saturday before game time so he was ready to go! Unfortunately, the weather was very warm and our seats were directly in the late-day sun. He spent a few innings out near the concession stand in the shade, but after that was happy to be in the seats and clapping and participating. We sat right next to several heart friends including Averi, Maggie and Abbie Lynn. Averi and Maggie will be attending Camp Rhythm with Connie this summer and Averi will also be having open heart surgery very soon to replace her homograft. I'm so grateful that we have met so many wonderful families on this journey and that he'll grow up knowing he's not the only one battling this disease.
