Nobody is a trooper like Reid Layne...

As mentioned many times, having children has definitely taught me a thing or two about patience...But with Reid now, its at a whole new level...The wait game she's made me play about her heart is something else...

Last week, we went to CHEO, to meet with the doctors there who ran a bunch of tests to see if Reid was a candidate for a less evasive heart procedure...Thankfully, my gentle little dove was so chilled she didn't have to be sedated for the test & this mumma just got to hold her through them instead...I wish I could explain what goes through your head in a moment like this...My mind went to some dark places & I had to hold back full on breaking down & sobbing...

The CHEO doc seemed to think Reid would likely be able to have the less evasive procedure {Thank Sweet Jesus} but had to meet with the team of docs/surgeons to confirm- We were suppose to find out last Friday & here we are Tuesday still waiting, testing my much worked patience into a frenzy...Reid is now being presented to SickKids on Thursday to get a second opinion & HOPEFULLY we will know more then...Here's hoping SickKids agrees with CHEO because my fingers are getting sore from crossing them for sooo long...
 
 
On another note about teaching me things...Reid has got to be the best patient around- At CHEO, she was a happy little thing even though she was hooked up to things & poked & proded all morning long...Since then she's also had 4 doc appts back home, had a fever of 102.2, went to the ER, had her eye dilated & lens replaced...
 
She's such a bloody trooper...You amaze me Reid Layne...EVERYDAY...
