The Upside of Being Tiny

This past week we changed over Gray’s dresser by putting all this 0 to 3 month clothes in and taking out the smallest of his newborn clothes. He’s 4 and a half months old and about 10lbs now. There is an upside to him being so tiny.

The blessing of him being so tiny is that his heart has time to heal. He was born with a PDA heart image from murmur; he has a small hole in between the top two chambers of his heart. It is the most common heart issue for preemies or even full term babies. Our medical team told us that it usually takes until the baby would be year old for the hole to heal completely, and about 6 to 8 months for the doctors to no longer be able to hear it with a stethoscope. At our appointment at the beginning of June the paediatrician noticed that he can’t hear the murmur anymore. Amazing news! 

This is the upside of G being so tiny still. Because he hasn’t grown fast and needing his heart to grow to support his growth, his heart has had time to heal the hole a lot faster than anticipated.

We prayed and claimed healing for this back in the hospital, and I love that we’re heading back to Brampton soon to see the cardiologist to see what we’re looking at. I love that my God is bigger than what medicine says, and great than their timeline.

I promise I will never complain about Gray being so small again.
