I just wanted to share our news. We found out on Thursday that Ellis has a heart defect and we're sort of reeling from that. I'd been crazy worried about him for his entire life (all 5 weeks!) I guess I had something real to be worried about. He had a bluish color around his mouth and so we ended up taking him to the ER. They actually found two heart defects, neither of which are immediately life threatening but both of which are scary to think about. We'll be seeing the specialist in the next few weeks and will have more information at that point. The good news is he's acting completely fine except for his goofy blue coloring. Also, my cousin actually had a very similar (if not the same) defect and he's 36 and just fine. And now that I know what it is, I'm less worried. Is that crazy? It's like I have something to focus on so I don't have to be completely freaking out about the what-if's.
We're trying to be positive and keep enjoying our sweet boy (lots of pictures on my blog!)
