We received great news yesterday at Little Bug's cardiology appointment. He hasn't seen his cardiologist in 5 months so they were so excited to see how Connor had grown and to hear about all the new things he is doing. After his echo cardiogram we got the good report that Connor's heart function is perfectly NORMAL and HEALTHY!!!!!!!!!!! Praise the Lord for that fantastic word, NORMAL!!!!! He received a bill of health for 12 full months and he also dropped another medication off of his list. That means we are down to only 2 meds that he is taking. Slowly but surely we are making excellent progress towards normal. I will update more on how he is doing in all areas soon. We have our neice Olivia with us until the 17th so we have lots of fun things planned.

Oh, by the way, thanks for commenting Graham, WA. I was apparently wrong in my assumption of who the 100,000th visitor was to the blog. I will confess, I thought it might have been Tammy because I know how addicted she and her wonderful family are to the blog, but I was wrong. According to the comment, it was Kim Vallone. It's nice to know you visit often to check in on us. Thanks for letting us know who you are, I feel like we've made a new friend.

Have a wonderful day and I hope everyone finds a way to beat the heat around here. It's supposed to be in the high 90's and may even reach 100 here in Seattle over the next few days.

Lovebug Hugs,
Lori

Way to go Connor, Normal is AWESOME little bug!!!! Im so glad that good things have started your way and that you’re getting big and strong, you have had one incredible journey in your 17 months on this earth. I hope you know we think of you all the time and we have watched you get better and grow, and we will always love you little bug (even if your not so little anymore) Skylar is getting any where from 4 to 6 hours off a day, but each day is never the same, some days he doesn’t want it off and some days Im running around the house like a chicken with head cut off, but its progress and were slowly getting there. I love to hear good news from you guys, and I love seeing how beautiful the kids are.
Stay cool today, its going to be super hot!!! Lots of Love Sheila

WOW!!!

He is turning your mourning into dancing; your ashes into a crown of beauty. All the prayers and crying out to the Lord are coming to fruition! God is faithful and in His timing, he answers.

Congratulations on your good news! We have a 22 year old with Down Syndrome and are friends of Larry and Maureen. I have been watching your blog closely! I do have one question: What was the big surprise that Tim the Tool Man Taylor would have been proud of?!?

Wonderful news Connor! So happy to hear you are doing so well. Hugs to Mackenzie too! Also, thank your Mommy for the help (Mary Grace). It was so thoughtful of her. She is getting better.
