Echocardiogram

My poor sweet stoned baby (sedated for medical exam).

For this extensive Echocardiogram, his Cardiologist decided he should be sedated so they could be certain to get all the pictures they wanted.  He giggled at the ultrasound wand thing being rubbed on his belly and chest and kept trying to put the technician’s fingers in his mouth.  The anesthesiologist gave him graham crackers – one for each hand – which he gnawed on.  It took him until the next day to really get back to himself.

The results were great, though!  His ASD has nearly closed making him “like 30% of the rest of the world”  (according to the cardiologist) and will begin being weaned from his Sildenafil. She did want one more Echocardiogram in three months after he’s had plenty of time to get off the medicine and reach a new “normal”. But good news!
