3 month post-op check up

Yesterday was filled with doctor appointments. In the morning Jadyn had a blood test to check her coumadin level. Coumadin is a medication that she will be on for 6 months, it's job is to thin her blood while her heart heals from surgery.

She has her finger poked every week to check the levels. We have had a hard time keeping her in the therapeutic level, the the amount we give her has been increased for the second time now.
Jadyn prides herself on not crying, the last 2 weeks she hasn't made a peep! The nurse and I are so proud of her. She is sure to tell everyone there that she didn't cry. She walks out of there with a sticker and her favorite treat, a piece of gum.

Daddy left work and met us for lunch, then we all headed to see her cardiologist.

The only thing they decided to do was a chest x-ray.
Her oxygen saturation is a whopping 99% .
The Doctor could not be more pleased with her.
Will will return to see him next spring.

That is wonderful news!! So glad she is healthy and I LOVE the pigtails! Our travel dates should be coming soon! They expect that we will be bringing Mia home late Nov/early Dec. Just following your journesy with Jadyn is so inspiring! Can't wait to bring our girly home!


YAY Jadyn. So glad to hear that she is doing awesome! :)


Great job Jadyn (for being so brave & not crying and for such a good check-up)!
