Bentley was very upset about her follow up appointment today. She had other things she much rather be doing.. but she had to go. I forgot my camera so I took a few not so great quality photos from my phone. Here is the one where she is letting us all know exactly what she thought about being back at the hospital.
Now here are a few photos just before her follow up. And of course wearing one of her beautiful Bentley Bows by my dear friend Noelle with Glam R Baby! Many more pictures of her wearing the others coming soon!!
Cardiologist says Bentley is doing well. Praise God!! Everything looked as it should a week and half after surgery. She goes back at the beginning of July for her next appointment.. and and shortly after working our way up to yearly visits. Then he informed us at about the age of 15 they will start watching her pulmonary valve closely to see if it needs to be replaced. I was a little heart broken by this because the surgeon said she will probably be about 50 before another surgery... BUT I can't complain... after all it is a good thing they will be watching closely. It is routine with TOF babies... it is not a for sure thing that she will even need surgery again, just as it is not a for sure thing that she will never need surgery again. So whether it is 15 years, 30 years, 50 years, or never... I know He will be with us.
I have so much more to post about, but I need to end this one here.. Also there will be a giveaway soon.. hopefully the beginning of the week.
I forgot to mention that Bentley is home bound for 6 weeks after surgery, so we have about 5 weeks left. Only other major intructions.. we cannot pick her up under her arms, or hold her by her arms. She is able to crawl and pull up as she wishes.. which is a huge relief because the girl started doing this in the hospital and we couldn't stop her then so I know we can't stop her now!
