Good Heart News

Tuesday, April 8, 2008



Caro had an appt with her cardiologist today to evaluate how her heart has taken to the device that closed up her ASD (the hole in her heart)(see this post for some history behind her ASD Closure)

The doctor said that her heart has completely closed around the device -there is no leak through it. Usually, it takes 6 months + for the heart to take to the device (it has been 5 months), so he was very pleased.

He also said that the heart murmur she has had since birth can no longer be detected. He said that her heart is now performing as if nothing had ever been wrong with it! Caro finally has the perfect heart she deserves.

He said that he wants her next check-up to be in ... 1 year! That's how unconcerned he is about her heart.

PS - He also cleared her (from a heart standpoint) for her cranial surgery coming up on the 16th (I'll post more about that later).
