Cardiology

Jack had a sedated echo this morning to check on the function of his heart. Thankfully they have lots of fun things to squeeze and play with to keep him entertained while we waited for the doctor.

Jack was pretty funny on the drugs they used to knock him out. He started giggling as the versed kicked in, then woozily chatted from time to time during the echo. I also took advantage of the situation and had the sedation nurse slip in some extra fluids through his IV since he hasn't been drinking much. That made me feel better.

Dr. Pulchaski said that he was "thrilled" with how great Jack's heart looks. The function is good, and the narrowing of the arotic arch they were worried about after his Glen seems to have corrected iteself and he's not worried about it any more. We don't have to go back for another 6 months!

We feel so blessed that Jack is doing so great and are grateful for the many loving prayers said on his behalf.
