Aaric had his latest Cardiology check up yesterday. He continues to do well. His sats are lower then I would like hanging out around 88 to 91 O2 range. Other then that his tests all look great.

I always forget to update

Aaric is currently doing well. Nothing has changed he remains stable, with 6 month cardiologist check ups. We recently moved down south and he seems to have adjusted well. His new cardiologist is out of Pensacola, Florida.

Cardiology check up

Aaric had a cardiology check up today. Everything looked good with his echo. He is still having to do a 24hr holster study cause they are continuously monitoring Aaric for sinus node dysfunction due to picking up occasional junctional rhythm on his EKGs. At some point in future he most likely will have to have a pacemaker implanted.

Updates

Aaric Started Kindergarten in the fall, He has been doing pretty good health-wise, other than he picked up the flu last week and ended up admitted to the hospital over night. He seems to be finally recovering from the flu. In other news , he got approved by Make a wish for a trip to Disney world which was supposed to be in Oct 2015 but the date is now being moved up to this summer.

I realize it has been a long time at least a year sense I have updated Aaric's journal. Its going on 2 years sense he had his last open heart surgery (the fontan). I guess after the last surgery you kinda of want to feel like everything is finally okay with your child. 

Aaric is doing very well. Our check ups every six months with  the cardiologist,  make me face reality that his heart is still not normal. Especially when you see  EKG wires hooked up to your 3 year old, and the  echo cardiograms they do of his heart, and the holster monitor study every six months. Its like its a waiting game of what is coming next.

YAY

Aaric had a Cardiology appt yesterday with Dr.Karr. He had an echo done everything looks great nothing is leaking. Everything is flowing correctly. He got to come off the Lasix one of his meds. His oxygen is up into the 90s now. 

Once they have a event recorder available they are going to call me to try and wean him off the digoxin. So please pray he will not have any tachycardia issues, during that time. I am hoping he gets to come off of the med, cause he was not on it before he had this surgery. 

So in other words Aaric is doing GREAT and his heart looks awesome and has fully healed.

Doing well

We have been home almost a month. Aaric has been doing really well. He seems pretty much back to himself now. Hopefully at his next card appointment they can start weaning him off some of the new meds he came home on.
