Happy Heart Day...Literally!

Some of you know that Annette was born with a minor heart defect. It wasn't serious, but she had a slight heart murmur, which means she had a tiny hole in her heart. Having never heard of a "VSD" before, it really quite scared me when I first found out about it in the hospital. But I soon found out that most VSD's close within the first year of life and that there are no complications attached with it. Well, today we went to go see the cardiologist and are happy to report Annette's hole has closed up and we never have to worry about it again. She's free and clear, we don't even have to mention it on health forms. I was very happy to hear the good news! Yay!
