Hello again!! Today was Lilyann's followup appointment with the cardiologist..and Lilyann got an EXCELLENT from the cardiologist!! they are super impressed with her recovery. The echo of her heart showed that her heart is all back to normal, no enlargement like before--the heart is doing what it is supposed to be doing...no fluid around the heart!! (which means Lilyann is officially off all heart meds!! YAY!!) Lily's weight was 10 lbs 8 oz...which is exactly what it was the day before surgery--now when i took her to the pediatrician a day after discharge, she weighed 11.4 lbs, but she was weighed with her clothes on (the weigh in at the cardiologists was just in a clean diaper) and she still had some puffiness from the surgery and extra fluid around her heart. So they aren't worried about her "weight loss"
I'm just so overJOYed...lol!! and we don't have to go back for 3months!! and then if she gets a good report again at the next appointment then we will only have to go back once a year!! That is awesome news!!!
Thank you for all your prayers and warm wishes. Lilyann is truly of gift from God--with alot of fight in her! She is going to do something great--you just wait and see. It was so nice to see Lilyann actually smile at the Dr. today...He even said something about seeing Lilyann's smile for the 1st time.
