April 27, 2013 marks 3 years with a good, stable heart!  We are so thankful!! Taylor is well and strong, learning and growing so much.  Here she is running through these, once long hospital halls, to her cardiology appointment.  So grateful!!

Taylor had her annual heart echo earlier in April.  She's doing well.  Her left, mitral valve is still showing moderate leakage.  He's not too concerned for today, as it seems to be managing well with medicine and her size.  He did raise concern again though for the abnormality of this valve.  Due to how damaged it already is, it cannot be repaired.  There is no need for immediate action but he does want to see her again in 6 months.  Eventually she will need this valve replaced with a mechanical one.  He hopes to put this off as long as possible, as it can bring it's own challenges.  Time and growth will tell.   We will continue to trust the Lord with our little star.  Love, Erin
