So cardiology visit today didn't go so well :( I'd go into all the details and whatnot, but really.... I don't feel like it. The gist of the problem is Yale's leaky valve. Its worse and his right ventricle has enlarged some more. So Yale is being presented on Monday when Dr Golding will be back at Sick Kids. Then we'll know if we have to go for a visit. (most likely) Liz says its most likely they will make a medicine change that can be started here in London. Only we'll have to make weekly visit until it is at a theraputic level...which Liz said could take quite a few weeks. There are other things that could be done.... but we don't want to think about surgery or cath lab or anything...
I just hope this is the course that everyone agrees on and it gets Yale's heart stronger. My biggest fear is it not getting better and them no going through with the Fontan. Luckily the fontan is quite a ways off, but still... Immediately when I got the news I went straight into the what ifs. I didn't ask anything yet because I just don't want to know the worst case scenerio...(but of course I know). Once again I have to put faith in the doctors..they know what they are doing... Its just so disheartening. He seems to be doing so well. I knew right away today looking at his xray that his heart was enlarged. and if I can tell...thats a bad thing :(
On the other hand I am very glad we got our visit home in there while we did. Yale had a great time and we had lots of visits...and lots of normalcy...which is far and few between.
Here are a few pictures of our visit :)
