Kelsi's check up

Kelsi had a cardiology appointment today and it went really well. She is doing great and everything looks great! Her oxygen saturation is still in the mid to low 90's. Her heart is still very dependent on her pacemaker; it's pacing her 94% of the time. Her normal heart rate is in the low 40's and the pacemaker is still set at 70. The pacemaker has 6 1/2 yrs before the battery will need to be replaced. It's so nice to hear good news again with her. She is back to 6 month appointments (like before surgery.) It took almost a year to get back to normal but we'll take it.
It's so nice to finally have both of my kids at a standstill with their diagnosis's.

I'm a little slow posting this but I wanted to let those of you who aren't involved in my heart support group (Intermountain Healing Hearts) know that we are having a fundraiser. The Olympic Gold Medal Mile Fun Run/Walk is on Saturday September 6th at the Riverview Park in Provo; see the attached flyer to print and sign up. It's going to be a lot of fun and it's a great way to help support families of children with congenital heart defects.

I am so happy that her appointment went so well. She is such a beautiful girl, with many great years ahead to make lots of wonderful memories with.
Your family is never far from my thoughts...

Hugs,
