It has been 5 months since our last visit with the cardiologist. This is the longest we have gone without seeing him. We're getting longer on a lot of visits. No more VNA visits, next month will be 5 months since we saw nutrition. And even with going longer between visits, this one was planned to just be a consult. No tests were planned, just weight and measured. We thought tests were planned - Timmy's insurance called to let us know an Echo was approved, so we thought one would be done, confusion ensued, but the Dr. and the image specialist who does the echo's was more than happy to do one on Timmy. The Dr. said she's had a thing for Timmy since the first time she did his echo.
Everything is still the same. He is doing as well as a kid who had gotten surgery. Some of the cardiologist's comments:
"Hey, don't listen to us Doctors, we don't know what we're talking about."
"The man upstairs knows a whole lot more than we do"
"He's doing great!"
"Look how good he looks."
Anyway, the cardiologist approved the removal of another medication with monitoring. He was happy that we were down on another medication, and he was happy to not raise the amounts of any of his medications. This puts Timmy down to 4 medications. 2 taken twice a day, and 2 taken once a day. A long way from where we started and we are grateful.
OK, here are your Timmy pics.
