inner struggle

Tomorrow we are taking Sam to see a pediatric cardiologist. At his two month appointment his pediatrician found a heart murmur that he felt needed further investigation. He told me not to worry (yeah right). My cool, level-headed mommy side says "no big deal...totally common...he'll be fine" but my worry-wart manic mommy side is a bit concerned (ok, not a bit...) The thought of anything being wrong with my perfectly perfect little guy scares the begeebers right out of me. And I think to myself, "if it's no big deal...then why are we being sent to the leading pediatric cardiologist at the Children's Hospital". So you see my inner struggle.

So. If you think of Sam tomorrow...pray for a good report...a "it's no big deal" kind of response that will let me stop stressing about the "what ifs".

Thanks a bunch. And cuz that perfectly perfect little guy is darn cute I'll share just one pic.

I'll be praying for you and Super Sam too.

Think of it this way, be very thankful you are seeing the top Dr. becasue when he tells you there is nothing wrong (and he will), you can truly truly be at ease. :)

Hey Jenn -- Anna Grace had a small murmur when she was a baby, too -- and they told us it should close up on its own as she grew -- and it DID! So just hang in there -- it's normal to worry! Just ask a ton of questions and everything will be all right!

Hugs and thoughts your way today!
Whitney :)
