Ava had a routine Cardiac Cath this week and while the procedure went well, there were a few minor issues which required a hospital stay. It's been years since we've actually been admitted for an overnight stay so things were a little rough at times. I wasn't planning on staying so we had a lot of juggling to do but it all worked out in the end. Bailey and Cora are both pretty laid back about change in schedules and Mommy being gone which was so incredibly helpful. Ava needed me every minute of the 2 day ordeal and knowing my other 2 were able to roll with it made my heart feel at ease! Ken stepped up and was super Dad and my Mother-in-Law came over to do the laundry I couldn't finish and the dishes! What blessings!
In all of the summer time fun we've been having I completely forgot about the appointment that was made over 2 months ago. We were sitting at the beach on Monday with my Cousins and in conversation about Ava's heart I totally remembered! DOH! So we left the house at 4:30am to be in Orange and checked in by 5:30am. Ava slept the whole way which was so nice. Less time for anxiety to take hold.
It was so hard to see her so upset about this. The nurses were very understanding and she was actually able to get a decent nights sleep. Her tests in the afternoon were all good so we were checked out early the next morning. We took it easy that day and by Friday she was back to her old self!
We went to visit my Grandma on Friday in her new place. She looked so good and the girls were being very silly. I love the look on my Grandma's face in the background. Priceless. Ken had sent the girls a goofy picture in a text so we had to return the favor!
Today Ava was back in the pool and jumping on the trampoline so life as we know as returned to normal! Hooray!
