Baby X Heart Update
For those of you out of the loop w/ no access to our family blog, I thought I'd update you on Baby X's heart. We went to see his cardiologist yesterday for an EKG, echocardiogram, etc. which we've been doing every few weeks since he had the angioplasty. The doctor was very pleased to see that the area they repaired is growing with him as he grows instead of staying at the size they made it while he continues to grow bigger. The doctor said this is a good sign, they can't always tell if it will be the case or not. He'll still have more stuff done to his heart in the future (angioplasty again, and then valve replacement when he's hopefully much, much older), but for now it seems like we'll just keep having these doctor's visits that are getting further and further apart, but no major issues in the near future. Yea!
