The Cardiology appointment didn’t really go the way we wanted it to. We are quite blessed that things haven’t gotten worse with my heart, however they really haven’t improved much either (1-2%). This means JD is our only child. Yes I know, we can always adopt, and we will see in a few years where the Lord takes us. Right now we are planning to just remain a family of three.
The doctor does want to see if my heart will be ok without the medication so they are slowly taking me off of it and I go back in a month to see how it’s going. I’ve been given the ok for light exercise but they said “You’re young, don’t try to get into shape overnight right now. Your heart couldn’t take it.” I can go for walks but nothing more really until I see them in a month and they can judge how I’m doing post medication. I’m praying I can go off the meds with no problem since I hate taking them.
While we’ve preped for this outcome it was still a bit of a shock to us. Deep down we were really hoping for the ok to have at least one more baby. We are increadbly blessed with JD. It was so hard to get him and I thank the Lord daily for the joy he brings to our lives. I’m sure I’ll battle a rollercoaster of emotions over the final verdict but that is ok. This too shall pass.
Jeremy and I just want to let you all know how much we love each of you. The love and concern we’ve been given has been just tremendous and we are in awe of the support family and friends have shown. It’s been a long process, and we are happy to move on from here and start the next chapters of our lives.
