We had our appointment with the cardiologist today, and I was nervous after our scare on Monday. They checked her SAT levels first and couldn't get them to read higher than 70 on her feet. But then they checked her hands and her SATs were around 85! They're chalking up her low SATs on her feet to poor circulation and cold feet! Then they did an echo and an ekg, both of which looked great! The dr. increased a few of her medications now that she has gained weight and he said we don't have to be seen for another month! We're still unsure why she looked a little 'greyish' on monday but everything checked out great today! As things are now, we're expecting Teagan's second surgery to happen sometime in Sept. or Oct. But for now, he gave us the ok to travel by car and get out of the house! Yay!
We started this blog to share the latest happenings at the Maxwell house and our daughter Teagan's 'heart journey'. Teagan was born March 21st 2008 with a congenital heart defect called Critical Aortic Stenosis which led to Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. (HLHS)
