Seattle Childrens

Warning!!!  This is going to be a long post with lots of pictures....  so if you don't like long posts or lots of pictures...  then skip it!  =)

Here's the same little guy that had his surgery back in August once again at Seattle Children's Hospital for his second echo trip and check up!  (Read about Judah's Heart for Jesus here).
We were blessed to be able to stop by Heritage Bible Church on the way up to Seattle....  wonderful to see you all!  (Cash family and Devines!)

 Then on Monday afternoon after getting out of the hotel rather quickly we were at the hospital signing in....  they've already got us all in the system and are starting to recognize us, haha! So signing in went rather quickly....

 Then we had a few minutes to get ready and organize everyone....

Then off went Judah, Mommy, Daddy, and Bethany to the echo (I went last time and it's absolutely amazing to see the echo!).  First thing, Judah gets weighed- he's becoming a pro!

Wow, here is the echo!  They take over 100 pictures of the heart.  Thank the Lord that the closed holes are doing great and the doctor doesn't think they will need to be addressed again!!

Next stop is the check up (any idea what his siblings were doing at this point? :)

 Checking Judah's other heart defect.... isn't he such an amazing, cute little guy? 

 Then after that, he was done!  Whew!  :)  On the way home, we stopped by the Holstens for dinner.  Thank you for having us, Holsten Family!!!  I don't think anyone took pictures though....  for some reason no one brought a camera on the trip so we had to rely on iPhones!

All the way home and until the next afternoon Judah wore a Holter Moniter which checked the
electrical activity of his heart for 24 hours- still awaiting the result on this!
He had a special little vest to keep the leads on.  Judah said it was tight!  And he thought it should be cotton too! :)  He was totally a pro with Holter Moniter...  and made sure that I knew how to properly wire it on him and make sure it was secure.

 And it is done!!!!  24 hours later!  Judah was delighted to see that the Holter Moniter said "Judah" on it when it was timed out.

We Love You, Judah!!

Praise God that Judah's appointment went well. He is such an amazing little boy, I have been inspired by his determination and joy in every circumstance.

I'll be praying for your sweet little boy! What joy he has on his face even when his little heart is being monitored. Hope you all get a good report.
