Luke doctor called me today ( never a great thing when he calls himself though I appreciate it). Luke has a very small VSD (ventricular septal Defect). It is a hole in the heart that is caused when a wall is formed between both sides of the ventrical. For some reason a little area didnt close all the way. It is very tiny but usually closes with time as the baby grows. Luke's isnt closing. THe older he gets the less likely it will close on its own. He is still at an age where it could close on its own but at this point we need to be followed by a cardiologist. I am waiting to hear from the Mass General Hospital for an appt. I feel good that we have such good hospitals around us and if he does eventually need surgery he will go to Boston. Surgery is still aways off though if at all I have been promised. We are hoping the musculature of the chest cavity pushes the spot closed. I just dont like that it is more pronouned now then it was in the past. That's not supposed to happen.
We will just try not to worry too much till we see the next doctor.
