our little stud...

has closed two of his three heart defects all by his lonesome...the vsd(which would have needed the open heart surgery) no longer exists, which is a huge blessing being that the nicu told us that these holes rarely self correct, the pda (which should have closed at birth and didn't) healed also! now we are left with the asd...such good news for our little man...
~
from here....the cardiologist is worried a bit that the blood pressure in his lungs is a little higher than it should be because of that last defect...so we see her again in two months and hope his strong little heart continues to gain strength....if in two months his blood pressure is still up we will have to go back onto oxygen for a little bit and see if it will help...if that still doesn't work they will go up the artery in his leg and stitch up that little hole....

moving forward is always good...looking forward to a life without cardiologist appointments! yay for camden...and thanks to everyone for the well wishes and prayers on our behalf...we have felt them.
