Cardiology Update
Friday was our first visit to the Cardiologist in 3 months. We were pleasantly surprised with wonderful news of Mya's improved heart function. For the first time in her life, her heart is operating at the low end of "normal!" We are so thankful for the news, we were thinking that she'd have to be put on a blood pressure medication if there weren't any positive changes. After a routine echocardigram last week, they've decided that no additional meds are needed! It's now been 8 months since her surgeries, and has been granted a 4 month break from Children's Hospital, the longest time away since her birth. We are so incredibly thankful for her positive improvement. God is good! We have really enjoyed the change of seasons, with all the fresh fruit! Between strawberries, blueberries and watermelon, Mya is a real fruit lover! She's also talking up a storm, with very sweet little pronunciations of the words she knows. We are challenged daily with the "new" words, it's a job to uncover what she's saying. Once we figure it out, she gets really excited, "Yeah!" It's fun to be the translator of this amazing little mind... she continues to surprise us with how much she understands. Such a little sweetie. She also prays with us, one of my favorites! The focused time is limited, but the attempt is definitely there!
Mya enjoyed a recent visit with Grandpa and Grandma Tiegs

Great news! Praise the Lord! Julie, thank you so much for giving us such precious glimpses of Mya. This was the first time I heard her talk; well, speaking that I could understand, that is.
