We love baseball around here. We have found 2 incredible baseball families who also have children with Down syndrome and have each respectfully started their own amazing foundations to support and educate. Pujols Family Foundation and Team Up for Down Syndrome. If you are interested click on the names and you will be taken to their sites. These sites were some of the first we found when we first began our own search for support and education after learning of Reid's diagnosis. Actually, side note here....just coincidentally my mother-in-law was one of the labor and delivery nurses in the room when Rex Hudler's (Team Up for Down syndrome) son was born with Down syndrome. Funny, how things happen.
Quick update on our littlest baseball player's progress...We saw glimpses of hope today. Our cardiologist came in this morning, he had been off yesterday and did not get to see the echo until today. He indicated that he actually thought the echo did indeed look better than the one dictating the need to look into surgery #3. What???? Wow!!!! Not what we had been told yesterday. No doubt we were thrilled to hear that! We remain cautiously optimistic as we still need to see what the new echo shows tomorrow and then what the team decides when they meet Wednesday to discuss the possibilities. We were given hope today that my original option #1 might still be a possibility after all! Thank you for your prayers.....they are felt!!
