Isaac over-all had a good and healthy year. Isaac started eighth grade in the Fall. Isaac was diagnosed with liver disease in December of 2015 and we procrastinated getting his liver biopsy until the 14th of December this year. Isaac had a couple of procedures on the 14th, and the esophagus shows no varicies which is a good sign, his biopsy came back showing he has focal bridging Fibrosis Stage 3, and Mild portal Gastropathy. I will have to research to understand what all of this means, since doctors do not have time to explain details and teach a course about the liver. Anyway, he says we do not have to see him for six months, which is usually a sign that I do not need to worry. Isaac will have an ultrasound to followup on his liver to see how it is doing and an echocardiogram around the same time to followup on his heart situation.

Last night I was reading through my email and I came across a membership permission from a website for kids that Isaac had signed up with. I asked him if he had signed up for this, and he said yes. I looked at the login name with surprise, thinking maybe his dad helped him come up with his login name, so I asked him if he had help picking out a login. Isaac said he did the whole thing all by himself. The name he chose for himself was "Toughboy." Wow I love how he came up with this on his own. I am glad Isaac realizes that he really is tough. It's good to know that he has developed a good self esteem. I am so blessed to have this toughboy as my son, he never ceases to amaze me.

Since Isacc's heart cath, this past June, Isaac's heart has been doing well. We are excited to see him have more energy than he has had for a long time. We hope that Isaac stays healthy, and can wait a long time for his next surgery. His next surgery is most likely his hearing in his left ear, within the next year probably.

When Isaac awoke, he was miserable; he complained that his leg hurt really bad from the Catheter, and his throat from being intubated. It took several hours of vomitting and crying to finally get some rest. It was really difficult to lay flat for so many hours recovering. Isaac was anxious to use the bathroom after waiting so many hours while laying flat, being filled with IV fluids, and a urinal was not acceptable to him. At about 2am Isaac was ready to leave the hospital, and go home straight to his own bed.
As Isaac healed, he noticed he had more energy, and could run faster. Although Isaac hated having a heart Catheterization, it was all worth it in the end. hopefully Isaac can have a very long break before having any more surgical procedures of any kind.
