Cardiologist appointment results (x-posted)
 
Marsi was an absolute champ today. We got there at about 1:30 for our 2:00 appointment because we had to go through paperwork. The first thing that happened was an EKG. Everything with that was normal. The cardiologist definitely heard the murmur the pediatrition was hearing. We decided to chance having an echochardiogram without sedation because it was Marsi's nap time. She was such a champ through it! They were able to complete the whole thing (about an hour) without any sedation!! When they were done with that, we got the diagnosis. Patent ductus arteriosus. In order to figure out the importance of when it needed to be fixed, we needed to see if her heart was getting enlarged. They found that out through chest x-ray. This showed that her heart was already getting enlarged and that the problem needed to be fixed pretty soon. With everything that was told us, we opted for surgery. We don't know when it is going to be. The surgeon is going to call to make the appointment. Because of that we needed her to have her blood typed and tested so she had to give blood today too. She did so well through all of this. It is heart breaking, but I am glad we caught it early and it can be fixed.

*hugs* Augie let me know about this last night, but I wanted to track you down and give you big hugs.

I'm glad they did catch it early, and that it's something that's fixable. She'll be a champ through that too :)

psst... you should share some new pictures of her :)
