I was little nervous yesterday. Adrift in a way I've only felt since becoming a mother. Yesterday afternoon Emerson had her follow up appointment at the cardiologist. And though we had no added cause for concern since our last appointment, I still felt this knot inside of me.
After a long wait, the results of the tests were positive. The hole appears smaller. It is low in the heart, close to strong muscles, which is apparently a good indication that it will close in time. The cardiologist is pleased with Emerson's overall progress and a follow up visit won't be necessary for eighteen months.
Such a relief.
