Cardiology Appointment

Nora’s cardiology appointment went exceptionally well yesterday morning! She only had to have a quick EKG and exam. Dr H said he is very pleased with her numbers and overall appearance. There really is no telling what caused that hiccup in her heart rate. Incase it WAS the Synagis shot, I’m relieved that was the last one for this season. Definitely something to keep a close eye on if she has to get them next year!

Nora is 15 lbs. and 14 oz. and 26 inches long! She is getting sooo big, so fast! The fact that she’s eating and gaining so well is very encouraging!

We were so excited to see Linda M on a chance meeting in the hall on our way out. She is our “Angel on Earth” who has a way of always showing up in the right place at the right time! How sweet it was to be able to return that favor to her!! You made our day too, Linda! We’re so glad you’re back!

Nora was glad to be back for baff time!

Greta spent the night at our friends’ house, so it was just Gavin, Nora and I after William left for work. (The big kids are on spring break this week.) When Nornor’s nurse got here Gavin and I went out in search of an adventure.

First stop: shore of the Ohio River in Petersburg. Lots of rocks and sticks were thrown. Gavin has been an avid rock thrower since he was a very little guy!

From there we went to lunch, then back home. We peeked in on Nornor before heading down to the creek in our backyard for adventure part 2.

I love being able to spend one on one time with my kids!

Back home again that evening there was a really cute, sweaty baby girl who was requesting a baff. It got pretty warm in our house for a couple of days which made for a sticky, hot, sweaty baby. She really seemed to like the cooler temperature of the water that we opted for! I foresee a little kiddie pool in our near future!

“It’s kind of fun having my brudder an sister home like this! I love them soooooo much!”

“Look at me in my big girl stroller! Going for walks makes me hungry!”

“Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom.”

In a nutshell (or a lengthy blog post, as the case may be) all is well. God never ceases to amaze me, proving to me over and over and over and over again that He has complete control over this. Can you even believe that Nora is going to be ONE YEAR OLD next Wednesday?? We never dared to dream that we would see this day.

I had planned on announcing an Open House type of party to give all of you the opportunity to meet Nora. However, in light of everything that has happened lately we are going to have a smaller scale celebration. I promise we will have a day to meet Nora in the summer! 🙂

“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
(Jeremiah 1:5 NLT)

That verse gives me the chills every time I read it!!!!!!!

  1. This post just made my day! We are so happy for your great news from the cardiologist. Nora looks so happy in her sweet birthday dress! I just love how you can link every experience and every day to a scripture. So inspiring! Thank you for taking the time to share your life with my family.

  2. I JUST GOT HOME VERY EARLY HOURS THIS MORNING. OF COURSE I HAD TO READ YOUR LAST BLOG FIRST, BECAUSE I HAD TO SEE IF ALL WAS GOING GOOD WITH NORA AND HER WONDERFUL FAMILY. WHILE IN INDIANA, I HAD TO MAKE TWO TRIPS TO THE EMERGENCY, BUT AM FEELING MUCH BETTER . MY NIECE’S HUBBY IS DOING GOOD. HE AND MY NIECE GOT HOME LAST NIGHT ABOUT 8:30 P.M., AND WE LEFT AT 9:00 P.M. FOR THE TRIP BACK HOME. GLAD TO BE BACK HOME, BUT I ENJOYED HAVING TIME WITH MY GREAT NIECE. SO HAPPY TO HEAR THAT NORA IS DOING MUCH BETTER THAN WHEN I LEFT. IT SEEMS LIKE SHE HAS GROWN SOOOOO MUCH SINCE I SAW PICTURES OF HER LAST TIME. SHE LOOKS LIKE A DOLL BABY IN HER BIRTHDAY DRESS. PRAISE GOD HE HAS BLESSED NORA SOOOOOO GOOD. HIS LITTLE PROPHET!!!!!! THANK YOU ALEISA FOR SHARING YOUR FAMILY’S LIFE WITH ALL OF US. MY GOODNESS, THIS LITTLE PRINCESS IS ALMOST A YEAR OLD. “THANK YOU LORD.” I LOVE THE PICTURES OF GAVIN. THE ONE TAKEN AT YOUR CREEK IN BACK OF YOUR HOUSE IS REALLY GREAT!!!! WELL, I AM STILL A LITTLE WEAK, SO I WILL READ YOUR OTHER BLOGS THAT I MISSED TOMORROW. I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH. HOW WOULD I BE ABLE TO SEND NORA A BIRTHDAY CARD? LOVE AND PRAYERS TO YOU ALL.

  3. I love reading about your sweetest heart and am so glad/relieved to hear her cardiology appointment went so great, our savior definitely has his awesome hands all over her! I know you mentioned that pain and being uncomfortable can raise her heart rate, do you think that maybe little nor nor is teething?! Just a thought. I hope y’all have a blessed weekend!!!

  4. You never cease to amaze me, you are such a wonderful mother! You can tell Gavin had a good day with some one on one with his mother. I think that is so important and you not only find the time but you lay everything else aside to make it happen! There is no doubt in my mind that there is laundry to be done and cleaning to do and much needed rest to be had, but you go that extra mile to spend some quality one on one time with you son. And that makes you an inspiration to me!
    So, so happy and relieved that Nora’s cardiologist appointment brought more good news!! She is growing up so fast! I just love the pictures where her hair is sticking up in places…adorable! She looks soooo healthy and happy and absolutely precious!! 🙂
