Sadie's all clear!

We were thrilled and relieved to receive a normal echo report for Sadie.  The cardiologist came in immediately after the procedure to inform me that everything was perfect.  Sadie was a real star and was very patient while they ran the test.  It took longer than normal because of her croup, they had trouble seeing her heart properly and needed to take some extra pictures.  This delay was unsettling to me, I started to cry as I walked out of the hospital.  I fully believe that God does not give us more than we can handle and he knows, I can't handle two children with heart problems.  The relief was overwhelming and difficult to contain.

It was an interesting experience in the cardiology unit of the children's hospital.  Everyone was very kind and warm, they greeted me like an old friend and were sure to introduce themselves.  Many of them reminded me that I'll get to know them well after Hope returns to Calgary.  This will become a second home for us as we go to multiple cardiology appointments with Hope.  I felt as though I was being welcomed into a club as a new member, sadly it was a club I didn't want a membership to.

We are thankful for the wonderful care we receive and look forward to working with such pleasant staff in the future.  Thank you for your prayers, we truly praise God for Sadie's positive report.
