Kelsi's Dr.'s appointment

Kelsi is doing great!!! Her oxygen level is at 90 (which is perfect for a heart kid after surgery.) Her pacemaker was still set at 80 bpm but is only being used 81% of the time. So when she is really active her own heart rate is beating higher than 81. Her own heart rate beats in the 50's when the pacemaker is turned off. They said it isn't likely that her heart rate to come back up. (They think the sinus node was cut during surgery.) They turned the pacemaker down to 70 bpm to give her heart a chance to become stronger. They said so far the battery will last for 7 years. It could be up to 10 years with it turned down to 70 bpm.
I'm so glad that everything is going well with her. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome after surgery. :o)

Hi there,

I am a complete stranger but a friend of Brynn Homer, and that is how I found your blog. I am amazed of the trials your little family has faced and faces daily. My heart & prayers really go out to you. I am a photographer and I would love to offer you a free family portraits. I would come to you and do whatever your would like. Let me know if you would like that, it is just a thought. I know you probably do not have much time.I actually worked at Primary Children for a few years, you are in good hands.

Best Wishes to you!
