Results on the Echo

     Good news!  The pediatrician said his heart is 98% normal.  All babies have a spot in their heart that is open (kinda like a hole, but not a hole) while they are in the womb. It is supposed to close when they are born but sometimes it doesn't. So Greyson has that little 'hole' (Boaz had this when he was born as well) but we will just keep an eye on it (with the help of a cardiologist) and it should close on it's own.  Also, the right side of his heart is slightly enlarged. The pediatrician said that the valve on that side is a little 'leaky' so it is enlarged because it is working harder.  We will also be keeping an eye on this and it should resolve. 

     His bowels/intestines look great.  

    He was on 2 liters of oxygen earlier today, but they have bumped it back up to 3 liters for now. They are going to wait to feed him because of this. But GREAT news, I get to go see him!!!!!!!!!  I have even been cleared to hold him, though I will wear gloves and a gown just to be safe.  Thank you for your continued prayers!
