Annual Cardiology Check-Up

 

Matthew had his annual cardiologist today.  He gets to have an electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, and a visit with the specialist once every year.

Remember his mitral regurgitation (leaky valve)?  Last year, it was “moderate,” and they wanted to watch it closely.  This year, it is “trivial.”

And that pin-hole between his ventricles that they were watching?  It is gone!

In fact, his little heart is doing so well, we can now go 2 years between cardiology check-ups.

Not too bad for “zero percent chance of survival….”

There is so much going on around here … so much to write about.  New house, new baby, new puppy, new flock of chickens, new routines … I apologize that I don’t keep this blog very well updated.  For now, just taking care of my children and my family takes all of my time and energy.  At the end of the day, I can barely form a complete thought, let alone write one down!  But, we are very, very blessed, and for now, it is enough.  Patient readers, thank you for continuing to care about our precious little boy and our family.  I will update when I can.
