Way Back When-esday: echos

Today, we headed to Dallas in the downpour for a visit to Lily's cardiologist. If you've followed my blog for some time, then you know of Lily's congenital heart defect. If not, you can read about it in the February-April 2008 archives. Long story, short--> Lily was born with a hole in her heart and it required open heart surgery to repair it.
As of August 2009, Lily was considered heart healthy. A little over a year after her VSD repair.

We were sent to see the cardiologist this time because Lily received an abnormal EKG when we were in the ER this weekend after her seizure. Come to find out, it's normal for Miss Lily to have an abnormal EKG. It's common to have this right blunder blockage after having a VSD repair. This is great news because we were concerned when the pediatrician set up our appointment ASAP.
All is good with Miss Lilyann for now. No new episodes. We are still waiting on the results from the EEG (brain scan). Once we get those, then we should know what was the cause for her seizure this past Friday.

Lily---during her echo August 2009--a few months shy of 2 years old

Lily--after her echo March 2012--4 yrs old

I am sharing this update on Lily and linking up with Cheryl from Twinfatuation for Way Back When-esday.
