First ... gawsh, I love my dh!!! My birthday is Saturday and Monday, he gave me my birthday present ..... 26th row center orchestra for KENNY CHESNEY! OMG, I am soooooooooo excited! When the tix went on sale in May, I asked him if he wanted to go and he was so mean ... No, why would I want to do that? ughhhhhh MEN! So, he decided that he would get them for me for my birthday. The concert is on our anniversary too! woooooooooo hoooooooooo

Now, for Jason's update.

Jason was born with Congenital Aortic Stenosis. We've followed up with a pediatric cardiologist in Cincinnati every year for 13 years (up until 7 it was every other ...but now every year). We live in Chicago but his dad is in Cincy and I decided that we like this guy, he's the head of the dept, so we'd just leave him at that hospital. Every other year, he gets an ultrasound of his heart. Until this year, there have been no changes. He has had no activity limitations. You'd never know that there was anythign wrong with him.
Which brings me to his visit last Friday. He had another echo (ultrasound) and the results weren't evaluated before doc saw Jason, so he called me yesterday. <sigh> We've known since he was 6 months old that the words "adolescent growth spurt" and "surgery" were synonomous. This year, his heart is a little larger because he has a little more reguritation from the aorta (some of the blood leaks back into his heart as the heart pumps the blood out). He said they'd see him again next summer and do another echo, but that we were probably looking at needing the valve replacement the year or so after that. His only activity limitation is that he can do no weightlifting. Doc did tell my ex (who called to hear stuff for himself, he was a little bit upset - the man is an idiot, I mean come on ... yes, I was a little unnerved, but sheesh we've always known this would happen) that he expects the surgery to be the next 2-5 years. I'm guessing we'll never make it to the 5 years for surgery. My thought has always been around 17 .... since boys have a later growth spurt. I shouldn't have been too surprised by this. Jason has grown leaps and bounds in the last couple of years. As a freshman, he's 5'5 adn 120 pounds... his dad was 4'9 and 90 pounds. He grew 8 inches from April of 2002- February of 2003.

I've been pretty busy getting the boys ready for school. Hopefully, I can be more active on the boards once they go back to school.

Have a great day ladies. I have to get ready to get chase up for school (he gets on the bus a full 90 minutes before Jason does - go figure)
