Olivia featured in FSU's High Performance Tennis blog

Update 3-

I've had requests for an update so thought I'd send this out...

This last week, Olivia had 3 MRI's on Monday. She did great, even though the big machine made her nervous. It IS a long time to have to lay still even with ear plugs and music! We have not gotten the results back on this yet, but the indication was that it looked good.

On Tuesday, we met with a pediatric cardiologist who consulted with us about her first EKG results. He decided to do another EKG which was unexpected. He thought maybe the first had been an error but the second one came back exactly the same. She will have to have an echocardiogram on April 23rd.

She continues to have her early morning physical therapy appointments on Mondays and Wednesdays and is progressing the way they want her too.

Thursday afternoon she had her 2nd appointment to help stretch and get her muscles supple and loose for the surgeries. Although some of the exercises are a bit difficult for her, she plugs through and says she feels so much better afterwards.

This week we are just waiting on results of the tests so far and receiving more calls from the surgeon's nurse regarding things upcoming.

On a really note, I had been contacted by the coaches of the FSU Men's tennis team who wanted to do a blog article about Olivia. It was sent to me to read after it was written, and really just made me cry. Olivia beamed when she read it. If you care to read the article, you can go to

Olivia's first surgery is five weeks from today. We are counting down.

Thank you to all who continue to pray and support us. And thanks to all those who continue to ask about Olivia and how she is doing. I will post another update as I get more info.
