Visit to Dr. Soup

Today we went to Primary's to see Dr. Su. Jack was pretty good for him, I can't really say the same for the poor nurse. Taking Jack's blood pressure is like pulling teeth. Heaven forbid we wrap a peice of fabric around his arm. I won't even mention the O2 sats thing we attached to his toe for a minute that sent him over the top.
All drama aside- Jack looks great, I think he is doing as well as a kid with a single-ventricle heart could BE doing. Dr. Su said he looks ready to go for surgery and will be putting in a request to Jack's surgeon Dr. Kouretis, to schedule Jack's FINAL surgery. It could be as soon as a couple of weeks, but it all depends on how the surgeons feel he is doing and whether or not he'll need another cath (
So stay tuned, we should hear in a couple of days when the date will be. And I really think....this is it this time folks.

Yeah to getting it over with! Payton is just a bundle of energy now, I can't believe it. We turned our mellow, calm child over to the surgeons & got an energetic, vivacious, hilarious girl in return... it's been wonderful to get to know our angel even more. It looks like we will be up there the weekend of the 22nd. I will be in touch so we can get these two together.
