Three day's until 1!

Porter had a good weekend playing and interacting with his brother.  There weren't any heart offers over the weekend so we'll see if there's any activity this week.  We found out that Porter no longer can accept any blood type and has to have a heart that matches his blood type. It's a little bit of a hard pill to swallow and I think we felt like we had been punched in the gut when the cardiologist told us that.  The good thing about that is Porter's blood type is O and the doctor said that O is the most common blood type they receive. Porter's heart rate has been up a little more over the last couple of days and his arm that has the PICC line in it has been and still is swollen but not tender or hot.  The team is contacting cardiology to see if they want to pull the line or keep it in.  Porter is a TOUGH stick so they are nervous to pull it and not have an IV access should they need it emergently. 

We cannot believe Porter is going to be 1 year old on Thursday!!!  Stay tuned for pics from Porter's prcu party!!!
