Mads is doing great. She has an appointment next month, so I know her cathetarization will be soon. It got put off this year. Supposed to be mid year, but the cardiologist had given us a longer pass after her mid-year appointment!
Had any appointments lately for your heart baby/child?
Hello ladies! I just joined this board a couple weeks ago and noticed this specific board for children with heart conditions.
My heart baby is Rose Grace. Her doc noticed a murmur at her 2 month well checkup. She had her first cardio appnt. a few weeks later and was diagnosed with ASD. The hole was 8mm at that time. We go back for a check up with the Cardio on October 7th she's now 11 months old. The anticipation is killing me. My hubby and I have been staying as optomistic and positive as we can, but it is so very scary!
Wish us luck on our next visit! Also I'd love to hear from any of you that have been through this same thing any advice on how to not freak out??? It doesn't help that she is our first baby so we are already completely protective!
Thanks all and glad to have the support from mom's that are going through the same things and understand.
Siera has an appointment with the card. when she turns one in February (so sometime around then). So far, every time I've taken her in for her well baby, the pedi's (there's three of them that she sees) haven't been able to hear anything so I'm hoping everything is fine.
And Rose, my daughter was dx'ed with an ASD, PDA, and a Bicuspid aortic valve. The only thing I can say is to take it one day at a time. It gets a bit easier over time but that worry will always be at the back of your mind. Just stay positive
Libby had her one year post-op follow up with the card in august and they did an echo and EKG, and all looks great! we have to come back in two years
for those who dont rememeber cause its been a while since i posted here:
We found out Libby had an ASD and coarctation of the aorta and pulmonary hypertension at 8 months old, she had her first surgery to fix the aorta. then at 9 months since she was still not thriving they did the second open heart to fix the ASD.
She was a different child after her surgeries, a happy healthy child!
Hoping for nothing but the best for those moms still worrying about what will happen at theri child's follow ups. g-d bless our heart babies
Hi ladies. I have been watching this board for a long time. My son was born with a VSD. And from what the drs can tell he is healing fine. We go back in Feb for a check up. Have any of your kiddos had to use antibiotics before dental appts?
My Maddie had her cardiac cath/angioplasty/coiling embolism procedure on 2/12. There was no progress on her lung. She is still at a 73%L/27%R split on her lungs with the blood they're supplying with oxygen. *sigh*
