Busy Week!!

This week has been pretty busy with doctors appoinments. We went up to Children's Hospital to see a specialist about Cass' trach. He has some scar tissue below his voice box inside and outside around his trach. It has been bleeding but last Friday night it was bleeding pretty good and it was really irritating him. The scar tissue is partially blocking his airway so on March 14th he'll have surgery to have it removed. Today we saw his cardiologist and we were hoping for good news because his murmur has been sounding quieter so we thought it closed up. When we went in today his echo showed that it hasn't closed and has not changed. It showed his left side of his heart is a little swollen meaning that it is working harder. He also has excess fluid in his lungs because of this so his doctor put him on Lasics (sp ?). His doctor doesn't think it will close so we'll plan on having it repaired this summer. It was just kind of downer since we were thinking that his murmur was gone. Just not what we were expecting. He's gained more weight, weighing in at a whopping 14lbs 8.4oz. He is feeling pretty good and is becoming more interactive. He's not sitting up yet. In the pictures I was holding him up under the blanket. He is getting better control of his head. He can hold it up for about 10 minutes now when he is on his stomach. He really enjoys his brother, I think James is his favorite person. He sure lights up when James walks into the room. They are so cute together. I hope they'll be the best of friends. I'll keep you posted on how he is doing.

Hi little Cass,
So good to hear about his weight gain! I'll be praying about his heart murmur, and what that entails in the future. Happy Valentine's Day! God bless!
