The title of this post was taken from the song I Bet My Life by Imagine Dragons.
Today was not the best day ever. In fact, it was far from it. Tyler had a doctors appointment this morning for a check up. They ran some tests and found glucose in her urine so she had to have blood work done to check her blood sugar. We are waiting for those test results. While we were at the doctor, I noticed that Blake had white crusty looking stuff on his tongue so I had the doctor look at him as well. Turns out he has thrush. As the doctor checked him over, she noticed that he had a heart murmur and is having him sent for an echocardiogram. Several weeks ago, Sebastian had a sports physical. Due to family history of heart disease, the doctor sent him for an EKG and an echocardiogram. I got the results while at the doctors office today. His EKG showed his heart rate was lower than normal but he's an athlete so its understandable. His echo showed he has a bicuspid aortic valve. Instead of having three leaflets his only has two. The valve opens and closes properly so there are no major issues there but this does warrant a trip to a cardiologist for further evaluation. I was a bit overwhelmed by the time we left. Let's add to this one very angry teenager who is in trouble because he doesn't want to follow my rules and then gets mad when there are consequences. Love Sebastian beyond anything possible and so when he gets angry with me it's hard to handle. I should take this time to apologize for all the times I said mean things to my mom and dad. I hate to think of the pain I must have caused them as a teenager. Let's add to this day a couple of mean and sarcastic comments directed my way by people I don't care about. I let them bother me way more than I should have. I'm ready to curl up in a dark room and listen to music. The end.
