Cardiology Appointment

Chase had his first appointment with his cardiologist today since returning home from MUSC for his Glenn. Here are some quick stats (my MacBook has a mere 8% battery remaining and I'm way too lazy to get the adapter. Sorry folks!):
  • Weight: 14 lbs. 11 oz.
  • Length: 25 1/4 inches
  • Oxygen saturation: 83%
  • BPs, heart rate, etc.: Great
  • EKG and Echo findings: Great
Overall, Dr. Horne was very pleased with Chase and how well he is doing. We'll return for a quick visit Tuesday morning to have the stitches removed from where his two chest tubes were. Believe it or not, we're getting close to spacing out our visits to be longer than every 2 weeks, which is awesome 'cause it means Chase is doing wonderfully, but also scary because it means mommy won't get the warm & fuzzy comfort and reassurance of knowing all is well with his heart quite as often.

We've also got an appointment with his pediatrician lined up for Tuesday afternoon. This will just be a quick post-surgery follow-up type thing. We've got to wait 2 months before getting his 4-month vaccinations, so we'll be quite a bit behind. No worries.

I can't say thank you enough for your prayers for us (especially Chase) through the past 2 weeks for his heart cath and Glenn surgery. We are so grateful for the love and support of our friends and family and blog readers!!!
