I have to say first that I LOVE Dr. Cowley. He seems to be the only doctor that hasn't come up with a list of additional problems for Nathan at every check up we go to!
Nathan's heart is doing wonderful. He does have a very soft murmur, however, Dr. Cowley feels that Nathan could very well make it to be a young teenager before he needs another heart surgery. Wouldn't that be awesome! We don't have to see cardiology for 1 WHOLE YEAR! For other heart moms, you know what a big deal this is. Its a sign of stability and life becoming a little more "normal" (whatever that word really means these days).
I'm sad to think though that due to Dr. Hawkin's illness (which we have been asked to give Dr. Hawkins privacy and time to deal with before blogging to the whole world about it), he won't be around at that time when Nathan needs another heart surgery. Dr. Cowley said that we were very fortunate to have him work on Nathan because of his skill. Dr. Cowley believes that it was Dr. Hawkin's magic who has helped make it possible for Nathan's heart to be doing so well despite his other "issues" we are dealing with.
Way to go Nathan!
