My pictures are out of order, but one of the things that we wanted to get checked out was this nasty bruise on Kyle's leg from last weekend when he was hit in the thigh with a stray pitch. While David was sedated Kyle had an appointment with a wonderful pediatric cardiologist. She said that it is simply a nasty bruise and that time should heal it. After an EKG and echocardiogram, he does still have a murmur but it is benign and he is cleared for all sports and activities! That made him smile:)
Kyle's vitals were great except that his blood pressure was elevated??? Of course Momma got nervous because they made him lay down and recheck it, then they checked it manually, then they rechecked it again before we left and it stayed elevated??? I freaked, I will be honest, but the wise doctor advised us to check it weekly for a month and call her back with his pressures. We wonder if it is because perceptive Kyle was well aware that it was scan day, nervous about his own appointment, or he just had white coat syndrome??? If it is still high after a month, then he will be referred to David's kidney doctor for additional testing.
David was sleepy after his scan and really only wanted Mike or Kyle to hold him. He is very unstable on his feet for the first few hours after the scan and Kyle stuck to him like glue. I love when we can go to clinic as a family.
Overall the day was long and tiring but we are so thankful to God for such amazing news. David has now reached a milestone of remaining cancer-free one year past treatment. We know we still have a long ways to go with many more hurdles, but we will stop and celebrate and give God the glory for each victory we win along the way. The boys are celebrating tonight by going to a local football game and Hope and I have had a tea party and we now have plans to watch a movie and call it an early night. Thank you dear friends for the love today-we felt covered in prayer and surrounded by love.
