Patrick had a cardiology check-up yesterday and Dr. Rhee said that while his heart is still enlarged, it has not become any worse. If his heart stays as it is, he may not require any future open-heart interventions!
It is likely that P will need a couple of less-invasive procedures in the cath lab (one to test the electrical pathways again and make sure he’s not in danger of an arrhythmia, and one to further close his ASD). But we can handle quick over-nighters at the hospital for these types of procedures. We’re so grateful things are holding steady!
I would upload a photo of P wearing nothing but a diaper, hospital anklet, and sandals in the exam room (playing with cars of course). But I don’t have my phone (which contains the photos)with me, so instead here’s one that Braden took on Monday (also with cars). You’ll just have to imagine that you can see his pot-belly and chicken legs ♥
