We had a very encouraging appt today. Jack's hole has not gotten any smaller, but is so restrictive that the doctor does not feel an immediate need to rush into surgery. We will continue on the meds and see him back in 3 MONTHS!!! We also discussed his slow weight gain and poor eating and the doctor is now convinced that it is only 20% related to his heart, and 80% related to his "psychology"! He said that he thinks Jack is just a squirrely guy who would rather jump off of the table than eat. The whole time he was flipping around and flirting with the nurses. The doctor said that he's going to give us a run for our money for sure, probably for the rest of our lives, but should never suffer too much from his lack of eating! I feel a huge weight off, and feel like I can start to really just enjoy his quirkiness instead of wondering "what is wrong!" smiles

Glad to hear the good news! It is such a relief to be able to relax. And who knows, may be Jack will become a better eater once he gets into solid food.
