LeahBug in the new year!

I guess it’s high time for another slew of photographs. But first, a tiny update on the tiny Bug. Leah had her first outpatient visit with her cardiologist last Friday, and really, not much has changed. We’re still in a long-term “wait and see” holding pattern. The ASD is pretty small at this point, and even if it needed to be corrected, apparently there are less-invasive ways of repairing it. The VSD, however, needs to shrink for Leah to not need surgery; the doc said the size of the hole is right on the borderline of whether it would or would not need surgery, but the bottom line is it needs to shrink. If she does need heart surgery we are likely still looking several years down the line. So let’s wait and let’s see and let’s hope this thing shrinks!!!

In other news, Leah is coughing an awful lot lately and is pretty sneezy too. We are keeping fingers crossed that it’s just allergies and not a cold, but it’s been pretty bad today. Not really quite sure what to do if it keeps up – but we’ll call her doctor in the morning and find out.

We hope everybody had an awesome and safe New Year’s Eve celebration, and we wish you a happy and healthy 2014! Here’s looking forward to a year of growth and progress for our bitty Bug, who has come so far already but has such a long journey ahead. Thank you for being Leah’s cheerleaders. <3
