Please please please let this be a long climb on this crazy roller coaster with no big dips in sight. AND thank you thank you thank you for all the sweetness as of late.
Two months till he's one year old!! That's crazy. We're thinking just a big old gathering in a park with some grills going and lots and lots of love. Stay tuned- an open invitation will most likely be posted here.
I'm the King of the World!!

So Simon's BNP results came back (via voicemail from HunkyPants).
Remember the BNP is the blood test that lets us know how dilated and distressed the heart is.
Simon's highest BNP recorded was 3600.
100 and lower is a healthy heart.
About 6 weeks ago Simon's BNP was 1100.
Since then he's had surgery and has had a rough road of recovery.
We went to our regular cardio appt this last Wednesday and had our regular work up.
He's just gotten back to sleeping well in the last three nights.
A BNP below 1000 is considered a good thing and a sign of recovery.
Granted, HunkyPants did say that he "hoped it was real." We'll see next visit but HOT DAMN!!! I know it's real.
Celebrating. We are doing something right.
Simon knows there's something to celebrate too as he's been smiley and talking up a storm since we listened to the voicemail.
Feeling light in my heart. (again with heart analogies)
Love and light to all
