This past month, we went in for Matty's 1 year follow up with his cardiologist.
Back story quick, of my 3 kids, 2 were born with heart defects. Hailey had surgery at 2 mo. to correct hers and now we just go every 2 years to make sure she's okay.
Matty was born with a moderate VSD, an ASD and a PFO. By 2 mo. the VSD got bigger, but the ASD had closed. By Jan. of this year, the VSD had returned to it's origional size, but was still pretty big. The hole was big enough that Matt would never be able to play competitive sports or work really, really hard. He would be able to leasurely play sports, but none of the hard Texas football kind of stuff.
Well, anyways, back to the followup. So we went in and Matt was a total trooper getting his blood pressure and his EKG done. Then we went in to get his echocardiogram. I was really nervous cause he had to be still and get held down. He fussed a bit, but after 20 minutes we were done.
We waited to hear fromt he doctor. She came in and gave us the news: His hole had completely closed on its own. All done! Heis 100% a normal kid now. Kevin and I were over the moon happy! As of this moment, none of our kids have heart defects.
So yeah, I am a happy camper. Wanted to share cause I used some of the pics on the weekly challenge and wanted to share with everyone else.
