Our tiger baby had her follow up appointment yesterday. She was definitely not happy to be back at the hospital. When they put on her hospital bracelet she really made a fuss. Poor baby just doesn't understand what all this means for her.
She had an X-ray and was examined by the cardiac surgeon and it could not have been a better report!! She's doing exceptional with the surgery. Everything looks just as it should in her heart! Her oxygen was 98% and it still shocks me to see that reading after we were used to seeing 68%. AND it does not look like we will need a cardiac catheter procedure to plug the MAPCAs either (something they thought might be needed to follow the surgery).
It takes 8 weeks for her to heal and it has already been 2 weeks. The doctor told us we should treat her normal and not have to restrict her...if she is comfortable doing something than let her — That she would know what she can do. Well, that means tiger baby should be running around here and doing somersaults very soon (;
I can only be in awe that we are on the other side of this. It felt like we have been climbing a mountain ever since we got these children 3 months ago... I hope this summer is full of uneventful playful bliss at the Lekberg homestead. (With the exception of one joyous event) Saturday we get to celebrate a BIG BIRTHDAY!! This little charming will be THREE.
