Though she still occasionally battles exhaustion and her right ventricle is still partially dilated her heart is in the best shape EVER! In 6 months she will go back for another check up and she'll be fitted with a 24-48 hour holter monitor to wear. The hope is that she can get close to 10 years from this valve instead of 3-4.
Since our last post.... well COVID-19! Our DC trip was rescheduled the night we were supposed to leave and then was cancelled in May.
Our home has remained COVID free so far. We've been cautious and the kids have began the 2020-2021 school year learning from home. Ashlyn obviously has underlying health issues and as a family we have been working together to keep healthy and to not bring cooties home.
I know that our updates are normally longer and much more exciting but we haven't been up to much. We spent the summer trying new recipes and hitting the beach once a week.
We hope everyone is doing well!
A $30 donation to CaringBridge powers Ashlyn's site for one month. Will you make a gift to help ensure that this site stays online for them and for you?
