5 month Post Glenn Cardiology Appointment

Daylen had another post glenn check up with his cardiologist and it went fantastic! He is almost 10 months old now and growing so much! Weighing in at 20 lbs and a little more than 2 feet tall (shorty), he didn't need an EKG done, but did have more pictures of his heart taken thru an echocardiogram. His o-sat's were 88 (but the probe had a weak signal so I believe they were higher) Dr. Parihk took Daylen off of the lasix completely and increased his aspirin (for blood thinning) to half a tablet every day now since he weighs so much :)

After all was said and done, Dr. Parihk said we didn't need to come back for another 7-8 months! How wonderful! The only downside to that is the fact that I know once those 7-8 months are up, they will be deciding on a plan for his 3rd surgery :/ (sigh) However, I can NOT wait until we are post-fontan!!

He was trying to crawl out of the office so we occupied him with food :)
