Cardiology Appointment

Nov 28 007 - CopyNov 28 010

Tuesday we spent all day down town.  It took three of us to get that ECHO – the nurse to hold her arms, me to hold her legs, and Becca to do the hand motions to all of her little songs.  We were all singing and making funny sounds.  I’m sure the ECHO tech thought we were crazy!  But the cardiologist was delighted – more activity means she’s improving!  She says her heart is not the reason we are still on the vent.  Her mitral valve and tricuspid valves only have mild regurgitation now.  Her heart size is good.  She did increase her heart med by 50%.  It should help with her PH. 

We also got her synergis shot and did tons of labs.  We did a tracheal aspirate to see if we can figure out these brownish secretions.
