We took Bryson last Thursday to Children's for his check up with his cardiologist, Dr. Best. He weighs 14lb. 10oz. and is almost 25 inches long!!! They did a heart echo and found all 3 holes are getting smaller!!! The 2 holes in the bottom, VSDs, are tiny! Dr.Best said they sound like water squirting through pin holes and the hole in the top, ASD, is small! When we had our last echo, 3 months ago, the top hole was categorized as moderate to large in size. Dr. Dyamenhali, who took care of Bryson in CVICU, helped with the echo and doesn't think B will have to have another surgery! Dr. Best took him off two of his medicines so he now only takes one medicine twice a day. He released us for 6 months and we don't have to come back to Little Rock. We will be able to go to the Regional Childrens Clinic in Lowell. This clinic is a branch of Children's Hospital so we will get to see the same cardiologists.
Bryson is sleeping pretty well and is getting up about twice a night to eat. We've discovered he's quite tickilish and will even laugh out loud every once in a while. He's beginning to grab at the toys on his bouncy swing and carrier and is sometimes successful in getting ahold of them. He loves his big sisters and they're great help. (most of the time) Every once in a while Rylee might accidently be a little rough. :)
