Miracles Happen...really they do

Do you believe in miracles? Well you better start, cuz we had one today. Tomorrow Davy is having surgery on her heart. They are gonna fix 2 of the defects, the PDA and the more worrisome coarct of the aorta. So in prep for the surgery they did another echo of her heart and guess what? No coarctation!!! It was just gone. So the same doctor that did her echo at UCI did another echo and still, NO COARCTATION! I asked him "is this normal? Can it come back?" The Doctor said he had never seen this happen before. He then explained he has seen them shrink with medication, but not disappear entirely. Davy wasn't even on medication for it. He had the cardio team look at both echos and they all came to the same conclusion ........ NO SURGERY!!!!
They are now going to wait til Thursday and do another echo then to see if it's still gone. I really feel so blessed. This is such a relief that our little girl isn't having another surgery. I want to thank everyone for your prayers on her behalf....they worked. Now maybe if I just click my heels 3 times and say theres no place like home, we can go back to UCI.
