Cardiology Visit

Today has been very busy!!! I had the privledge to hang out with my little buddy on his 1st field trip to Noll's Farm outside of Somerset. It was a beautiful day for it, but it was very windy up on that hill, thankfully the rain held out while we were there! They had a corn maze, tractor hay ride, play area, he learned about pumpkins and gourds, and picked his own little pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. It was a lot of fun and I'm so thankful everything worked out so I could tag along!

We saw Dr. Weller at Childrens today also. He was pleased with how well Ethan has been doing. Everything with his breathing, decreased appetite, and sleepiness is all related to the heart issue. He is keeping lasix as ordered and adding digoxin- a medication used to increase the strength and decrease the workload of the heart. I was very pleased with this visit, no admission!!! They are just trying to buy some more time to get his weight up and stronger for surgery. If at any point he gets worse they will just have to do it. He is up to 9lbs. His vitals and lung sounds checked out well. His echocardiogram of his heart is unchanged from delivery. He had to get bloodwork, but that was nothing compared to all the shots he got on Wednesday for his 2 mos checkup!!!! We have a follow up checkup on October 29th and we will see how things are going!!
