We spent only 1 hour at the pediatric cardiologists office today.
They told me to prepare for 2-3 hours, so we were pleasantly
surprised that we were out of there so early.
They did an EKG, an ECG and a few other tests like listening to her tummy and feeling her ankles and wrists.
She gets an A+ for heart health. She doesn't really even have a
murmur - what the doctor was hearing was normal blood flow to/from her heart. It just so happens that her heart is very close to her chest wall so the sounds of blood flow is very pronounced.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with her - aside from being really enraged about having the ultrasound on her heart. But she got over it fairly quickly.
On a side note: I took a good sized lunch of Bridget's "safe" foods
with us to the office since I was anticipating being there from 10-1
or so. As we waited for the doctor to come in, we broke out the lunch and she was happily eating her sweet potato cubes when the doctor came in. He chuckled and said that he was "all for it" when it came to having a picnic.
The whole staff was wonderful with her. Too bad they aren't our
Bridget (03/02) - who is now apparently 26.5 pounds (barenaked) and 35 inches tall, quite different from the 28 pounds/34 inches she was last week. Amazing!! She is going to be a tall one - that girl.
