Ten Thoughts Tuesday


1. Last Wednesday we had an appointment for BB#2 at a pediatric cardiology private practice.

2. He was upset at first, but this time the office and the doctor were more relaxing, there were stuffed animals and the doctor tried to calm him down, and referred to his heart beat, as a “frog” so she tried to amke it interesting for him.

3. So finally he calmed down enough and she could do anย echocardiogram and an electrocardiogram! Hurray! This means I don’t have to be admiteed to the hospital for a day for them to sedate BB#2 to do these tests.

4. And for the results. I couldn’t even imagine this good results. He had a PDA :Failure of a child’s DA (ductus arteriosus) to close after birth. So now it looks like for sure his DA has closed all by it self! Hurray!

The last doctor also said he might have a Sinus venosus atrial septal defect, which is a deficiency of the atrial septum. But during this echocardiogram this Cardiologist said his atrial septum is intact, so ALL GOOD! I was soooooo glad to hear this.

He still has a heart murmur and his Foramen Ovale ( It is one of the fetal cardiac shunts),is still open, but ther eis no blood flowing through it…. But she said this can still close by itself and it is not anything to worry about!

5. We have to take him back for controll in 2 years!!! 2 years without a cardiologist. Hurray!

6. So these results were the best easter present for me ๐Ÿ™‚

7. BB#1 had a 6 day spring break. But nothing went according to plans ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

8. We wanted to make a day trip to Budapest but that didn’t happen.

9. BB#1 came down with a fever on saturday and by the time he recovered all his friends became ill, so we could do any of the play dates we planned.

10. For these and other reasons (Daddy Blackberry worked the whole weekend, and the weather was crappy, strong winds and cold) Easter was not so perfect this year, but the kids still enjoyed the egg hunt and all the chocolate. And to end on a good note the Magnolia Trees are in full bloom in our city, so taking a walk is really enjoyable this time of the year ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I’m so glad the appointment went as well as it did, and the results are so good. Maybe two years from now he won’t mind going as much, too.

    Having Easter with your loved ones still seems pretty perfect to me, and the magnolia tree is so beautiful.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you so much for thinking of us ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so glad with the results. I am also hoping that in 2 years time, he will be more calm. This time his pulse was 190 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
      Happy easter to you ( a little late, sorry). You are right we were all together for the holiday (even my brother came home ), and that is all that matters.
      What is blooming where you live? Where do you live?

      • 190 is really high and would be quite scary to me. Obviously his doctor know much more about the heart than I do. I live in South Jordan, a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah in the United States. There are tulips and daffodils blooming here. My yard also has some short, small blue flowers that bloom every spring, but I don’t know what they are called. I know you live close enough to Budapest to make a day trip there, but I don’t know the name of your town. What is it?

  2. How wonderful to hear that you don’t have to go back for two years!! That’s awesome! Sorry Easter was a bit of a flop; we’ve had holiday weekends like that, too. ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. Wonderful news to hear BB2 is now doing so well..
    Vinnie also got sick with the same fever, cough and cold BB1 has. It’s never ending this year. Bring on the summer ๐Ÿ˜€
