Heartening News

Vera had a cardio appointment today.

Her last echocardiogram was when she was one and a half.

Now that she's 2 and a half, I thought it would be good to get a yearly update.

No new news - which is good news. There seems to be at least two ASD, but they are very small, about 2-3mm. Dr T explained that intervention is only considered if holes are like 10mm.

Vera's are not causing any problems at this point.

There is increased heart beat pressure, but to be expected because she is a biPAP patient.

We go back to the hospital in 2 days' time for her GI appointment.
