Promising News

Sweet Pea saw the cardiologist again yesterday.  And things look good =)

Since her last appointment with him (4 weeks ago), she's gained just over a pound (1lb 2oz) and her blood oxygen levels were right around 94%.  He was happy to hear that she's a lot more active and was pleased with the amount of food she's eating in a day. 

We have another appointment with him next month and the plan is to have an ultrasound done on the heart.  If everything continues to look good (weight gain, blood oxygen numbers, activity levels...)  then we can continue to hold off on the surgery.  Right now we're looking at mid to late October.

Deep in thought...

I'm thinking Sweet Pea looks like her big sister at that age...


  1. I'm sorry I've been out of the loop. What's going on? Does Sweet Pea have a heart condition? I'm glad to hear that all her numbers sound good and that any surgery can wait a few months.

  2. Wow, I was just thinking the same... definite similarities to her sister! She actually looks brighter and healthier in these most recent pics too. So glad she's doing well and that surgery can wait until she is older!
