Update on Jakin

Tuesday we went to the pediatric cardiologist and got some good news. 

*The fluid around his heart had already started to decrease!
*She didn't think that he actually has SVT, but on closer examination, things the problems are more atrial...which in her words are "generally easier to correct".
*Jakin's heart rate had started to slow.  It would drop to 123 bpm for a little while then jump back up to 274 bmp.  It went back and forth during the whole visit, which is better than the 284 bpm we saw the entire visit both Thursday and Friday.

The Dr. told me to take 1/2 the dose of the Propanolol and added Digoxin.  I'm really tired and get dizzy sometimes, but otherwise, I have peace about this.  I just know, deep down inside, that he is healed and will be ok.  Keep praying for our little guy!
