Cardiologist Visit and Echo Results
Wow I am so encouraged today . . . we saw the cardiologist and had an echocardiogram for Brandt and yippee . . . he weighed in at 8lbs 3oz!!! That means he's actually gained 6 oz since Friday. His doctor is also very pleased with the echo results--all functions remain stable with great shunt flow and no additional leakage. Of course, he had to projectile vomit all over his car seat, the exam table, himself and ME to finish off the visit. Glenn says if he weren't doing all this spitting/throwing up he would be HUGE. We do have a concern around his digestion right now--don't think it's a big problem, but I'm in touch with the pediatrician's office about that. A quick side note . . . I am having some health issues that may require further surgery--please pray for wisdom about the timing of all that considering Brandt's high maintenance needs right now!!
