I am becoming very accustomed to sterile waiting rooms these days.

It seems that I have been at the Dr's office for one thing or another at least once every week for weeks now.

Yesterday, It was Annagail's turn. Her blue feet have me worried. They don't stay blue, but she has long bouts during the day where they are very deep blue/purple. I snapped this photo during one of her "episodes" and emailed it to the Dr. The Pediatrician said that she has only seen one other case this extreme in a child Annagail's age (5 1/2 mos), so she is sending us to a pediatric cardiologist tomorrow @ 9am. Considering everything, I am doing a really good job of staying out of the pit of worry. The Pediatrician said that they will do a whole "work up" on her heart including an ultrasound. I don't really know what to expect or what they will do other than that. Nathan is going to come with us, obviously. SO, here I am again asking for prayer for health issues for our family. Please pray that this will be a non-issue for her and they we can just wait and watch her outgrow this with time. That would be the best case scenario.

In other Annagail news, she is currently cutting SIX TEETH!! Yes, SIX top teeth all at once. She had a couple of really rough nights this weekend, but considering the pain she must be in, she is doing wonderfully. Four of them have poked through a little, but the others have her gums swollen to twice it's normal size. She is quite the trooper. She is already back to sleeping through the night. She cut her first two (bottom)teeth at 3 months, but it looks like she is on the fast track for a full set of chompers by her 9 month check-up. I better get on the ball and get her eating food-food!!! Time is flying by with this one. I blink and another milestone has passed. Where does the time go and why does it speedup with each child?!?!?!?!?!?!

Thank you in advance for your prayers!
