Cardiology Visit

Jack had a cardiology appointment yesterday. He screamed the entire time and kept saying "all done" and "home," well, at least until he finally fell asleep exhausted in my arms while we were talking with Dr. Puchalski. Then we were finally able to get a good blood pressure reading and Dr. P could liten to his heart without trying to hear past the wailing.

His xray and EKG looked great and even with all the screaming his sats were in the low 80's so we don't have to go back for 6 more months. Dr. P still thinks we're on track to have his Fontan sometime next summer or fall.

Oh poor guy!! Kind of glad to hear it though lol seeming Kylie did the same thing. She screamed "owie, owie owie!" the whole time poor cardiology department, then she crashed 1/2 way through too!! Thats to funny. Glad he got the okay!!! We go back in 6 months also Nov 3rd for a sedated echo. Makes me nervous cause Dr P said he only does them right before the Fontan, looks like we are on the same road again? Dr. P hasn't given us a time frame, due to the weight loss, but am assuming we will know more then. They tried to do an echo at our last appointment but she screamed so loud and hard it was comical. Glad he is doing so well and looks like you are having lots and lots of fun!!!
