Ethan's Echo

Ethan and I spent the morning at the hospital today, where he had an hour-long heart ultrasound and an EKG. Little dude was really awesome considering we were there from 7:30 am to 11 am!

The results of his scan were good news - the dilated aneurysm that was seen during my fetal echo was gone, and the issue has resolved itself. The valve between the left and right side of his heart has remained a little bit "open", but apparently 25% of all people have this issue, which really isn't an issue at all. He was declared to have a healthy, normal heart, and we won't have to have any scans done again!

Glad we got that out of the way. it is a crazy week of appointments (DS2 sees the sports medicine clinic tomorrow to follow up on his elbow dislocation, and ethan sees the pedi on Wednesday) but we will make it through!

Great news!! :woohoo: Hudson had a murmur when he was born (not sure if this is the same thing). They said it could take hours, days, months or years to go away or not all but it wasn't a big deal. His cleared up before we left the hospital but I found it interesting how super common it is.

Jonah had a murmur too, the nurse told us they normally see an average of 9 out of 10 babies with it immediately after birth.
