I'm a little behind in posting about Thursdays apt.. It was okay. Her echo didn't look as great as it has been since her surgery... darn. I got so used to hearing that her heart function was looking great that it stunk to hear they saw something that concerned them. Her valve is leaking more, it has always been mildly leaky, but it was moderately leaky during the echo. Her pulses were still great, but the echo's don't lie.. So they've increased her blood pressure medication in hopes that it will take care of the leaking. We have to go back in 9 days for another echo to check it. If it is still leaky, we have to do a cath. We weren't planning on a cath until she was like 2, so that was kinda dissapointing to hear. But it's not for sure yet.. we're hoping the meds take care of it for now and we can hold off on the cath. The last couple of days she has been a little sleepier than usual and not eating as good. Maybe it's just me being worried, but I have noticed a little of both those things. She did put on some good weight though.. finally 16 pounds!!
