Cardiology Results

Well, it was a brief visit. Madelyn was great. The cardiologist stated that the PFO was a pinhole and they would see us back in 2 years. She has no limitations on her activity other than until we run another echo, no scuba diving. When told that she couldn't scuba dive, Madelyn showed no emotions. I think she's OK with just snorkeling for a while.

We also had her monthly visit at the Children's Cancer clinic. Her blood tests all came back great. She walked unassisted around the entire office and was the talk of the clinic. We submitted a urine sample for VMA/HVA levels and should have those results in 2 weeks.

Madelyn's surgical incision looks good. Unfortunately, they placed an occlusive dressing on the site that adheres to the steri-strips. We removed them tonight and replaced them with some we have at home. She took a bath tonight and is now officially back to her routine.

Sheila is getting some birthday pictures done at Portait Innovations next week before they depart for PA/NY. We'll post them on Picasa when we get them. Just in case you want to see all of the picture albums, go to this address
