Nichole's health update

Give thanks to the Lord, our God and King,
His love endures forever
He is above all things
His love endures forever

Nichole had an EKG a few days ago. An EKG is basically a type of "heart scan." They put all this "stickers" on her chest, arms, and feet, and they clip on this wires that are connected to the EKG machine. The patient is to lay very still as the machine works and the scan is taken. Going in I knew it would be a challenge, since I do not know many seven month old babies that lay still for 15 minutes. However, Nichole showed great interest in her mommy's soft voice telling her stories as I stroked her face. It was quite an intimate front of two nurses...maybe not that intimate.
Nichole's doctor came in and checked her. He listened to her heart and announced that the EKG looked great and he no longer can hear the heart murmur. He says it is very possible that the hole in her heart has closed on its own! I asked if she would ever need surgery, and the doctor said, "No!"
The next day Andy took her to have her blood drawn for a thyroid check, and again we had great news. Her thyroid is perfect!

Just thought I would share the great news!
