Grandma and Grandpa brought up a cake and I got to go watch the Cavs future in Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson (Irving is the real deal.)
But the best birthday present of the day?
"The EKG came back with relatively normalized heart function. It looks now, like she only had a borderline infarction. And the echo looks to me like it might be a little better too. I'll leave it to the professionals to make sure, though."--Chaia's Cardiologist
It'd be premature to start the celebrations, but it might be that the first echo in months has shown noticable improvement. (Week after week, we've had echos done with "no change"...which was actually good, because Chaia's heart was doing more and more and her damage was not getting worse under the added strain.)
We may know more tomorrow. But, hope is a pretty good birthday present.
Hope is good.
I like hope.
