Mason Update

Hi Everyone,

We had another doctor appointment at Childrens a couple weeks ago but unfortunately I am just now getting around to updating Mason's blog. We did not receive any additional news that we didn't really know already. Dr. Vernon (pediatric cardiologist) was pleased that the left pumping chamber was bigger than what they would normally see in a child with HLHS. This is good since it will make things a bit easier for the surgeons when the time comes.

Mason is due June 20th but Kelsey will most likely be induced sometime a few days before that. We have a couple more visits at Children's Hospital before the due date so there will be more updateds to come before he is born.

As for Kelsey and me we are doing great. We have more support from friends and family that we could ever ask for. We pretty much have his nursery wrapped up with just a few finishing touches to go. Kelsey has had her first of two showers and we were blessed with many gifts and words of encouragement.

Thanks again to all of you for following this blog and keeping an interest in how Mason is doing. Kelsey and I truly believe that God is in control and He is going to work a miracle. All this talk about surgeries and heart problems is only Kelsey and me keeping you informed of what the doctors are telling us. Our prayer is that Mason is born and once his tests are complete the doctors are going to walk in the room and tell us that "something" changed and he's okay. In order for that to happen God will have to work a miracle and we believe that is what is going to happen. In any case, whatever takes place in Mason's life there is a reason for it and many people will be influenced by it. Kelsey and I are ready for whatever God has in store and look forward to meeting our son in about 8 WEEKS!!

Thanks again everybody and God bless,

Greg & Kelsey Garka

Today's post title comes to you from the one and only Greg Garka... Thanks for the idea babe!

As far as Mason is concernced today was another good day for our little man!
We made our goal and got up and went on a total of three walks. The last walk of the night he spotted the “playroom” and was interested so we stopped and visited with our neighbors while he played. It was the highlight of the day.

His appetite decreased today but that is to be expected since he hadn’t yet had a bowel movement (in 6 days)– however about 60 minutes ago things changed in that department and I am happy to report his bowels are working and back in action…

During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
