Well...we had our cardiology appointment today and Isaac's leak
is EXACTLY the same! yep...he's a 6 (from 1-10). SO...no immediate
danger and need for surgery!!! His right ventricle is enlarged (almost twice it's size)..
but, that didn't seem concerning (I guess it goes along with the defect). He
has some narrowing in his pulmonary valve...but, nothing to act on just yet.
His EKG was normal (for him)...only showing a high heart rate of 165 (while
sitting perfectly still...NOT crying). hmm...
So, we have the holter monitor for the night.
He is enjoying eating it...
little stickies all over his chest and belly...
I can't keep his little hands off of them!
he's getting grumpy...
oh wait...he just wanted the camera strap
(i knew that)So...thank goodness( well, not really)..but, he had one of his episodes tonight where he wakes up from a sleep (abruptly) screaming bloody murder. I plugged in the sat monitor, he desats into the low 80s (because he's screaming so hard)...his heart rate didn't get too high...but, it's these episodes that he does off and on...and I just don't know if it's heart related or not...anyway...glad it's on the monitor tonight for them to look at.
We doubled his Enalapril (blood pressure meds)..hmmm...I didn't get an explanation...maybe just because he weighs a little more. (I hope). It was so great to see my favorite nurses and our wonderful card...just makes me happy to report good news!
AND....I hope no one cancels...BUT, we SHOULD get fitted for our old man walker tomorrow.
YEAH...I can just see him now...chasing the boys...I will be a crying fool!
Eli got "Beatty's Best" at school today. That means he was like the "student of the month". He just smiles...because he gets picked every year. This will be the THIRD picture of him holding his award on our fridge. Yeah for Eli.
Chris has a sub in geometry this week...oh, we're never going to get ahead!
and that's all I can say...because if I can't say anything nice....I shouldn't say anything at all.
(but, i'm thinking things....if only you could read my mind)
