Then, we had a 'lay-over'. Kind of like at the airport, where you have some time in between flights...well, we have the same thing but instead of cool airplanes, we are waiting for a different appointment. Our lay-over was an hour so we explored the hospital. I wasn't in the best of moods so Mommy finally found a cool push car for me to ride in. This was the ticket to the rest of our successful trip.
We finally met with our Cardiologist who had examined the results from the echo. First, good news. The good news is that my Mitral Valve is not regurgitating any worse than it was 6 months ago. I also gained weight! Hooray.
The bad news is that the Mitral Valve is still regurgitating pretty seriously so we are still looking at an eventual heart surgery but for now, we wait. The other bad news is that my hard time with colds and recovery from the colds is most likely related to my heart. If my illnesses continue and I seem to still be struggling with recovering from them, then I will have to start taking medication. Nothing serious. Just some Lasix but Mommy hates meds. She has been so very proud of being medication free. But if it means I'll not miss so much therapy and school, then great. We'll wait and see how I do over the next month or so. Jonah has a fever so we'll know pretty quickly if I recover well from the next illness.
Here are some pictures from the trip to Seattle. See you there in about 6 months!
Check out this cool car. Don't I look like a race car driver?
Hmm. Let's make sure we've got everything....VeggieTales? Yep. We're good.
