A good day

I guess a angiogram is the closest thing we have to a little window into the heart. Unfortunately, it's a real pain to take a peek! C's heart cath went very well, leaving us relieved and reassured. The doctor said that all the arteries are "wide open" and that the stents are in good shape. He told us to go home and not worry and didn't even keep C overnight. We felt incredibly loved and supported by all of you. It was a good day.

That's so good to hear - I'm glad he's doing well.

I had to go in for an MRI the other day. While it wasn't a particularly pleasant process, it's pretty amazing to think about how far technology has come just in our lifetimes and how blessed we are to have access to it! I had a similar feeling when Audrey was born and we were worried about infection. It's comforting to know that we live with access to, quite literally, the best healthcare in the world. It's humbling when you realize that probably something like 95% of the rest of the world lives with far lower medical standards.

I read an essay recently, written by an agnostic, who pointed out that God, if there is a God, already does more healing through modern medicine than he (or she) ever did through miracles. The author also posted the question, "What if I was gravely ill and someone told me I had to choose between God or modern medicine--what is the logical choice?" Fortunately we don't have to choose. I hope you're doing OK after all of your testing.
