5.27.11 - Cardiology Update - 6 Months!

Cardiology appointment went perfect yesterday.  I could not have asked for a better appointment.  Liam was great, handled the EKG wonderfully and even started trying to dance a little during his echo (I kept asking who IS this child??).  He was SO good....I am so thankful he is not scared of doctor's yet....and I say yet because I'm just waiting for that shoe to drop!

Dr. Verma said Liam's heart has not changed since the last visit - YAY!  He explained his left pulmonary artery (ies ?) is still slightly narrowed, but said it has not changed.  The conduit is not showing any signs of stenosis or obstruction, and pressures were measuring the same as last visit 3 months ago.  SO, we go back in 6 MONTHS!  That will be the longest time period thus far between visits...He almost said we could possibly wait one year, but I'm glad he veered on the conservative side. 

I know this is a short post, but I am headed into work this morning.  Busy weekend ahead, so happy Friday everyone!


  1. Woooooohoooooo! Way to behave little conduit (and Liam)! :)

    Do you mind if I ask what his pressures were at this visit?

    Just think .. it will be a whole other season when you go back again!

  2. So glad things went great! Those darn pulmonary arteries and our TOF kiddos! That has always been Andrew's main issue (thus, the reason for his most recent surgery). We are also praying for things to be unchanged at our next appt! :) I'm so happy to hear things are great with Liam!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. GREAT news!! Exactly what I was hoping to hear!
