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!!


  1. My duaghter has Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome and had her Norwood on January 4, 2010 and just had her Glenn 2 weeks ago at MUSC. She also had SERIOUS digestive problems although it has gotten better the older she gets. She's still on reflux meds and they do seem to help. Praying for wisdom for the doctors to find the right dose and combination of medications for your little one!

  2. My son is 15 months old. Had his Norwood April 13, 2009 and Glenn in sept 2009. He had severe reflux with no rhyme or reason. It does get a lot better! It takes a lot of patience and changes of clothes :)
    Colin's got better after his Glenn, hopefully your clears up sooner.
    We will keep your family in our prayers.
