The New Year

Well, my friends, the new year is here and has begun. It has been a quite and uneventful one so far(for which I am very happy for).

I need to let you know that the new year also brought releif for our family.
Nikki was having some health issues and we took her to a pediatric specialist who discovered she had an abnormal EKG 1 year ago. They did another EKG and it also was off to the Cardiologist. The time between the visits was long and worrysome and we did not want to bother our families with it until we knew more.

So for my family, the news from the Cardiologist was good...her heart is GREAT. She was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrom and needs to be very, very aware of her body and not to over exert herself. She is doing much better and has had to lessen her dance classess. She still does alot of dance, but does not try to over do it and rests inbetween alot. She is feeling much better on their advice. It was hard for her at first to imagine less dance, but now that she has she is feeling better and realizes what the Cardiologist meant. I am so proud of her through all of this and I know she will succeed.

I am so thrilled to hear that Nikki's heart is just fine! Sorry about the CFS but this is not life threatening (although when one is dog tired and everything aches you might think so!) and for that I am very glad to hear. Now, Mom, breathe in, breathe out!!!
