Breakfast with Erik Quinn
Our echo is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 8. I will bring DVDs with us and see if Erik can get through it without sedation but will not feed him breakfast in case we need to put him under. Because of his anxiety about being in a medical setting and his tendency to be in constant motion, I suspect sedation will be required. If all goes well, we will only need to have one more yearly echocardiogram when Erik turns 5. I can hardly stand this.
The following video is a bit dark, but I shot it this morning during breakfast and hope you enjoy it. Erik is a morning person just like his old mama.
Married to Brian in 2001. Our son, Erik, was born in October 2004. Erik was diagnosed with Williams syndrome by a geneticist in March 2006 at 17 months of age. The diagnosis was confirmed by FISH testing a few weeks later.
