Gongey’s BlogDescribing the Indescribable World of The Gongey

All things Gongey

A Gongey is a special being. Having been created in the fiery furnaces of hell...wait...let me start over.
Back when collars were huge and pants were in the shape of bells I was born. The year was 1977. After 10 long months of gestation I was ready to join the world and make my contribution.
This blog is a record of my life. Good, bad and generally mundane!

Most of us have heard the statement “It will get worse before it gets better.”, well I never really understood that until now. For the past few months money has been REALLY tight. Well June comes along and we have to go on COBRA for our insurance. As we all know COBRA is super expensive. So now we have a $1000/month payment for insurance! So now we are really hurting. Well the financial gods decided they are going to kick us in the face and stomp us in the groin! Elias got his checkup yesterday and we find out he has a heart murmur. Now I am massively worried for Eli, but I really know he will be alright. We now have to pay COBRA again for the month of September because Eli has to have X-rays, EKG’s and various other doctors visits, including a visit to Primary Children’s.

He was diagnosed with Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD). Here is a link to an excellent site about VSD: http://www.healthsystem.virginia.edu/UVAHealth/peds_cardiac/vsd.cfm
The picture above illustrates VSD.

    I’ve been noticing that Elias has been eating less when he has been with me. I wonder if VSD is causing that to happen. I love you, Mary and Elias more than you know!
