Good Report

This past Friday Victoria had a checkup at her cardiologist's office. We had another great report! Dr. Mayer said she looks and sounds great after being off of her blood pressure medication for about two weeks now. He told us, again, that she had been blessed with a "beautiful heart repair." He said there is very MILD leakage and that she should continue to be just fine without any more blood pressure medication. Dr. Mayer will see her again in six months. After her six-month-checkup, he said he will then just see her once-a-year. We cannot express how thankful we feel for the favor God has shown our little baby girl!

Victoria has also really been doing well with her therapy sessions. She is beginning to hold her head up pretty steady and I can tell she is gaining more strength in her upper back. She is enjoying "tummy-time" much better and can actually hold herself up with her arms now. She still has a long way to go, but she is making big strides and I'm very excited to see her progressing.

A day or two ago, I actually caught Victoria sleeping on her tummy. This was a first. She had rolled over in her bed and looked so cute. I just had to take a photo, of course! She doesn't always end up in this position, but every once-in-a-while we'll walk in to check on her and she will have rolled over.

Mark took a cute photo of Victoria and me tonight. She has such a cute smile in this picture! She is truly a gift from God and we want to thank all of you for your continued prayers for sweet Victoria Jayne.
