It feels like it has been forever since I’ve updated here!

I am happy to say that Katelyn is doing great! We are back home together and loving it. Braden started Kindergarten last week and things are all falling back in place.

Kate had her 6 month check up today with her pediatrician, Dr. Radimecky. This was the first time we’ve seen him since the day he sent us to the ER. He is the first hero on a list if many. I really thought I would break down and cry at the sight of his face, but I didn’t! Go Momma!!

Katelyn is up to 14 lbs, 7 oz. She’s in the 25th percentile now; still a tiny booger but such an improvement in the past three months. She was under the 5th percentile right after surgery. We went over all the normal baby stuff, he was pleased with her development and said she looked absolutely wonderful. It was a great appointment!

We go back to Houston on November 3rd for her monthly check. Please keep our girl in your prayers!

And just because I think he’s a cutie, here’s a bonus of Braden on his first day of school.



About katelynsmarathon

Our blog follows the journey of our sweet baby girl, Katelyn Mae. She was born April 14, 2011. At 5 weeks old she was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and we were informed she would need a heart transplant. We were transferred to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, TX. On Sunday, July 3rd we received the life changing call that a heart was available for our princess. Katelyn is absolutely thriving with her new heart and we are eternally thankful for the miracle workers we call her doctors, and the donor family that gave the gift of life to our Kate.
