Cardiology update

Wren's cardiology clinic visit went well.  He was very well prepared:  for the first time he remembered what to expect, calling it "the doctor who uses the goo to look at your heart."   He asked to hold the buzzer which they use to call you to the appointment and as we walked in he said "I LOVE this place."

The echo was quick and he lay still the whole time. 

Most importantly, the results are encouraging.   Dr Lewin said Wren appears to be in "a stable phase."

His gradients were almost unchanged from last appointment and he has gained weight and height.  His pulses are strong (although I can't feel them very well).

We can go anywhere from 6-12 months before our next appointment, depending on how neurotic I get at the 6 month mark.

I have vowed to be calm so we can wait a long while.

Happy to have this over.  Now there are no immediate impediments to GOING TO HAWAII!!!!

So happy that everything looked good at the check-up! And I like the new design, though I think my kidlets might be scared of the zombie. ;)

So happy to hear the good news. I turned in before your post was up last night and am smiling now that things went well. Those appointments bring a fair amount of stress with them, but glad to hear you're off to Hawaii soon (take me with you!!).

Thanks for all the happy feedback. We are also happy. We ate takeout and today we are eating popcorn!

Is the consensus that my picture is too GHOULISH? Mum has emailed me to ask me to replace it!

Frost and I think its funny that he is so macabre and Wren is so unconcerned.
