We have been wary as we have waited out these days since September 6 when Cole had an X-ray . . . we were told that his heart looked slightly enlarged and set up an appointment with a cardiologist.
Today Andrew explained to him that the cardiologist was a doctor who was going to check his heart. Cole responded, “Doctor check my feelings.”
We headed off this afternoon . . . we went in and Cole had an EKG.
We consulted with an internist. The EKG looked good, but the doctor was still concerned about the X-rays.
So we stayed and Cole had an echocardiogram.
But this toddler was a real trooper. I have never seen Cole lie still while he is awake for any amount of time. He loves to move, but he listened and he did whatever was asked of him . . . and then . . .
Cole carried peace with him through every minute of our time at the doctors. Our prayers were answered . . . that he would be a healthy little guy and that he would be big-hearted . . . but just in his feelings.
Lots of other kiddos there today having their hearts checked, praying for them as well.
