We got a full report from the pediatric cardiologist. Part of Brooklynn's heart did not grow together like it should have. The gap makes it difficult for the heart to receive the correct electrical impulse from the sinus node.
Hopefully, the gap will close on its own. She's doing much better, with fewer episodes of arrythmia. She was released this evening and is now at home. She sees the doctor again on Monday.
Thank all of you who prayed and sent us your well wishes! I feel MUCH better, but we're not completely out of the woods yet, so a few more prayers will be much appreciated!
that is indeed good news. I am sorry that she has the problem but the fact that they sent her home is great. I am honestly surprised that you can type with an armful of love I am sure you are holding.
We'll keep you in our thoughts, Holle. Glad to know she's ok. I hope she improves steadily.
I LOVE this pic!!
I'm not holding Brooklynn. Melissa wanted time at home alone with the baby, which I totally understand. I'll be over there tomorrow, though!!
That's good news Habee. Your family will be in my thoughts as things continue to improve.
glad to hear she is doing better, and thanks for giving us an update. get some rest! (hey, the florida hubs look fantastic!)
"little darlin, be well, Brooklynn."

Thanks for giving us an update on little Brooklynn's progress.
Prayers are ongoing for total healing.

What a hard thing for your family to go through. You are such a thoughtful mom/grandma to give Melissa some space to bond with her new baby, a little one who has been through so much in her short life.
It's always a relief to at least have the answers, if you know what I mean. Anyway, thinking of you and yours and sending loads of positive thoughts and vibes. Thanks for the update, habee, Hang in there...
I just got home from visiting the baby. I got to hold her for the first time! I was surprised by how alert she was. She's beautiful!!
The power of love is truly wonderous to behold in action. Brooklynn has so many hubbers praying for her - she is a very special baby indeed. My prayers are with you too. Stay strong.
Thank's for the update habee. All my love and best wishes for a fast recovery.

The baby was born without a uvula. This in itself is no problem, unless she wants to learn to speak German, Hebrew, Arabic, or some other language that requires gutteral sounds. The problem is that sometimes a bifid uvula is indicative of a heart defect or a submucous cleft palate. A submucous...

I'm sure by now you guys are tired of praying for and/or sending good thoughts for my family and me. Remember Brooklynn, my 7-month-old granddaughter who's had so many health issues? She's in the hospital again, with influenza type A. This is the most dangerous kind of flu and the one that's been...

TIMETRAVELER2 an active member of the HP community, recently had a bad fall and broke some bones. She will need months of therapy and could certainly use our prayers. She asks that no one write or contact her directly, because she cannot respond as she has a broken wrist. ...
