This day 9 months ago also kicked off our first fundraiser by a lady we didn’t even know at the time. Those little red beaded bracelets you see floating around worldwide, all strung one by one, by hand…
We do really love seeing them, even 9 months later!
Today, we went to CHLA for a fetal echo on baby Noelle. Our perinatalogist said everything looked good with her heart, but referred us to the cardiologist for the final say.
After a 45 minute echo and a meeting with Luca’s cardiologist, Dr. Pruetz, we were told everything looked great. We don’t have to go back!
This was my first time back to CHLA since everything happened with Luca. Dr. Pruetz talked about Luca by name, we saw familiar faces, and got to meet with one of our favorite nurses Luca had, Carlos. We even got to visit the room where Luca spent his life. Sounds weird, but it was nice to have a bit of closure, especially since we don’t have to go back to that place again. (!!!!!!!)
Who knows if these blog posts circulate their way around, but if they do – to all the wonderful people who took such great care of us and Luca at CHLA, thank you. I cannot say it enough.
We have some exciting stuff coming for this little LucaKnowsHeart movement, so stay tuned. And thank you for continuing to keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
