So today we made the early morning trek to Children's Hospital to see Henry's Cardiologist. Dr. Martin and his staff were simply amazing. I can not say enough how impressed I was by the level of care, the way they treated Addison and the way they treated us.
Henry had no worries but he sure looked cute in his little hospital gown.
He weighed in at a beautiful 7.04
After the EKG he had an echocardiogram which showed our beautiful perfect boy has a beautiful perfect heart. He has something called a Patent Foramen Ovale, or PFO for short. That just means that the separation between his atrium that is supposed to open wide at birth is not open very wide. However, the doctor assures us this is of no concern at all now or in adulthood. Dr. Martin stressed that it is in no way related to his turning blue while eating. Addison will be rechecked in a year to make sure it has opened properly. Although, I am not sure exactly why if it doesn't affect his health at all.
We celebrated with a coffee/chocolate milkshake. Yeah, it was really good. And so not on either of our diets. But sometimes you have to break the rules.
