Hey Gang,

The wife and I took the day off from work.......no, not for that, hey but if I hurry, with this, I could hurry with that too... No, see as some of you know, my youngest son, Mitchell, well he's got this heart condition thingamagig....Truncusarteriosus...TA, they call it, and well, some almost 9yrs ago, he had his first open heart surgery at three weeks of age.  Well, his deal aint over yet, if ever, and since then he's gone to see his cardiologist here in Seattle, at Children's Hospital for annual exams, to see what changes are happening, and to get ready for the next big surgery. So, since last year's visit in the Summer, his doc said...that by next year's visit, "well, we better start talking about a plan..." we decided to move it up to the Spring, see where we/he is at, and if need be, get the ball rolling, so as to maybe not have to have him in and them pulled out of school, along with his big brother Vincent, if we have to travel to California for the surgey. That's were his cardio surgeon is at, and well like having a good mechanic.....you kinda stick with the same guy.  Anyways, I aint trying to tug on y'alls heartstrings, just pointing out the facts of life, and maybe I'll hit the garage before I go, plug in a guitar, act stupid, and listen to some Mofro to medicate my mind before we go pick up the boys from school and out to Children's. Y'all be good and have a great day !

Hey Y'all,

Man I don't get this kid, he don't show any real signs of wear.  Took Mitchell in today, because as I said, last Summer during his annual visit, his doctor told us....thngs look about the same, minor but expected changes, and usually going this far on his first repair....is pretty good. So, we moved the annual appointment up, to the Spring, based on the fact that the doc. told us last August, by this August we should start talking about a plan.....so we thought we'd get a jump on it, in the event,it looked like surgery number 2 was needed.  Well, it's still needed, but as of now, not right now.  So, he got the ok to go another year, unless we start to see changes in Mitchell's health, which so far, we have not.  The doc said it becomes an issue of how larger his right ventricle becomes, and if he is showing signs/symptoms such as dizziness, sweating, fainting, pain in his chest... and like I said, so far, so good.  The doc said some kids have gone 12 years on their first repair, but there are all sorts of factors for that kinda run.  So, it almost seemed anticlimatic, yet a relief, but certainly not going to be able to avoid more surgery(ies) in the future.  This kid is something else, both of them are actually.....in different ways.  Oh and yes  I did listen to some JJ Grey and Mofro before and on the way out to the hospital.....a bit soothing it was.
Thanks for all of the good thoughts and well wishes too....they mean alot to us.  You're all a bunch of good, no make that great people.
