Prayer Request for MORGAN -

I wasn't going to post this until after Morgan's check-up appointment with her doctor tomorrow, but then I said to myself that there is no better time than NOW to start the power of prayer for my little girl.

We took Morgan in for her check-up with her pediatrician last week.  The doctor went on and on about how healthy she was, how she hadn't lost but 2 oz of her weight since leaving the hospital and no jaundice.  She was perfect!  He said most babies come in at least having lost more weight and with some jaundice to them, but not our little Morgan.

So as proud parents we sit there with smiles on our faces.  The doctor then tells me we can get her dressed and he will finish talking with us.

By the way the doctor is actually a friend and neighbor of mine so first of all I trust him completely and second I assumed he was just going to finish chatting up with us before sending us on our way.

However then he begins to tell us that Morgan has a small "heart murmur" (google it) and although this can be common among newborns, most of them close up by themselves with in 48 hours of being born and we are on day 5 for Morgan during this visit.

He then tells us that he has a guy that is a specialist and would call him up as a personal favor to have him take a look at Morgan with an ultra sound.  When he called this specialist, this doctor just happened to be in the neighborhood and wanted to bring his own daughter to my doctor for an ear ache.  How lucky right?

So we wait on his arrival, while I breast feed Morgan and while Hunter is hitting his first GRAND-SLAM in his baseball game that I was not there to see. The doctor finally arrives and takes a look at her heart and confirms that yes, Morgan does seem to have a heart murmur.  He believes it will be what they call an "innocent murmur" and it will close on it's own, however to be sure he wants us to bring in Morgan next week to look at it with the ultra sound.  

Although both doctors keep telling us to not stress so much over this..... as a parent and this being our own child how is that possible to "not stress or worry"? It isn't! 

With all that being said, Morgan will go in tomorrow morning back to her pediatrician for another check-up and I would like to ask everyone to pray that when we do go back tomorrow morning, that her doctor is able to tell us that it has closed on it's own and when we go see the specialist next week he too hears a perfect healthy heart and that GOD decided to close up her little heart murmur and that there is truly nothing to worry or stress about.  

So can you all PLEASE say a prayer sometime today for my little Morgan that all is well and that God wraps his hands around that tiny little heart and calms it down and closes it up and whispers in Morgan's ear that everything is going to be just fine. 

Thank you!

If it reassures you at all, Charlotte had a murmur still at two weeks, but was gone by the time our pediatric cardiologist appt came around. I bet Morgan's closes right up. :O)

she probably just has the little hole in her heart because she hadn't met you and her family yet, so now that she has, her heart is complete, the actual organ just missed the memo!! she is BEAUTIFUL and will surely be in my prayers (and so will you)!!
