Heart Buddies

Little You You and Kevin BOTH had doctor appointments today with the same cardiologist! Do you think they overwhelmed the doctor a bit? :) Two of his most complicated heart patients in one day...whew! (He said it was nothing compared to what these two put him through with their surgeries! :)

(this pic was taken a few weeks back when we went up north for a soccer game and Erica and You You came to play! Sweet heart buddies sharing sweetheart candy....love it!)

Today in the doctor office, Kevin's O2 sats were 84! The best we've seen them! Everything looked about the same--meaning his little lungs are still not where they should be for a major heart surgery. So, we wait a bit more! We don't go back for 6-8 months or so! Thank you for your prayers! We know God is in control and He has a great plan for our little man!

His shunt is doing its job of protecting his lungs from further damage, praise God! It was wonderful to see all the nurses again who took such great care of Kevin last year. They all peeked in to tell us hello and they ALL commented on how AMAZING Kevin looks! Thank you Jesus!

And the best news of all is that the doctor said Kevin was "good to go" as far as traveling back to China with us to get his brother "Keefah" (Keith)! Yay! (We don't know when that trip will be, but hopefully we will get to send our paperwork to China in the next couple of weeks!)

We're praising God for a good report and clearance for the little one to return to ND to meet his brother!
And you know that Kevin will continue to be in our daily prayers for his lungs. One day at a time...

We are thankful for a good report and that he can travel to China with you. We continue to pray that Kevin's body gets to a point where the needed repairs can be done.
