My sweet little Dalton had another Echo cardiogram yesterday. He did very well laying there for the technician. It's always stressful to watch your baby uncomfortable and unhappy and thank goodness he was comfortable and didn't move around a lot. Before each appointment, I become very nervous. You never know what news they will tell you based on the results from the exam. This journey in our lives has been extremely difficult and this is just the beginning of many more beautiful years to come with our precious Dalton. It's just difficult as a parent to watch your baby have to go through so much. The results concluded that the previous scare tissue is no longer present and that his pulmonary artery is still narrow. The pediatric cardiologist explained again that he may need a stint. If that becomes the case, then we count our blessings that it is all we have to worry about. For the Mommies and babies who are in any similar situation, have hope and faith. It's extremely difficult, but having a little one to hold, to wake up to, and to kiss, is all worth it. Please keep Dalton in your prayers.

What an amazing 5 months this has been. Dalton is 16 pounds and growing strong. He is beginning to reach for little objects and still wakes up every morning with a smile on his face. You would never know by looking at him that he is a survivor of TGA!
I am such a proud Mommy to my two beautiful boys!

My son Dalton is a survivor! On June 23rd he came into our lives as a sweet early surprise. 7 days later he had open heart surgery to repair transposition of the great arteries. The surgery was a success and now he is a healthy 4 1/2 month old! My family means everything to me. Every day is a blessing! Thank you God for your miracles great and small.
