Bethany update...
Bethany had a cardiologist appointment yesterday. This was just a three month check up to see how things are going. They did a sedated echocardiogram. When we got to talk to Dr. Arrington he told us that the blood pressure in her lungs is high and her weight is low so he wanted to talk to the head surgeon to see what he thinks about doing the surery now or wait until she gains more weight. He called us later that night and said they both agree that it needs to be done now. Dr. Arringon put in the order to do the surgery within the next month. We should get a phone call next week to let us know when they are going to do it. We are hoping to do it after her first birthday. If possible the week after Christmas. We want her first birthday to be at home with her family. We will keep you all posted on what is going on.

So far November is good. Halloween was fun the girls had a good time. Bethany fell asleep but I am guessing she didn't care much either! Hailey first went trunk or treating with her friend Emily(devil) then I took the two of them around the neighborhood. We came back and I dropped them off to Emilys dad and he took them out for a while until the rain came down.
Tysons sisters came up here from Mesquite. The girls just love them and Uncle Max. They stayed with us for a few days and we all hung out. We had a lot of fun playing the WII fit! Uncle Max, you are not obese! Not even close! Just like Tyson is not overweight. You guys are welcome here anytime!

Bethany has her next cardiology checkup on the 25th of this month. This is a big one. She will be sedated and they will be doing an ultrasound, x-ray, and MRI at this one. They will be checking all the organs and making sure the heart is behaving! Last time they were a little concerend about her liver because they saw it too was enlarged so we will see...keep your fingers crossed!


Hailey is in the 4th grade this year. I can't believe how big she is getting. She is really into science stuff. She loves anything about the universe and planets. She loves to experiment and figure things out. Hailey is a wonderful big sister. She loves helping out and taking care of her little sister. She can make her sister laugh more than anyone and is VERY protective. We are so proud of her.


Bethany just turned 2. She is a sassy little girl but I wouldnt have it any other way She is a tough girl. She loves her big sister so much. She loves to play with her and they have a lot of fun together. She is into Curious George and Super Why. She can count to 14 and say her ABC's. She eats EVERYTHING! You would never know this kid had to have heart surgery!
