~1st Cardiologist appt~

Gavin is 7 weeks old now and saw the cardiologist for the first time today. They did an echo and EKG. He had weighed 8 lbs and 15 oz at 3 weeks of age and today he weighed 12 pounds!!! He is getting so big :) The cardiologist informed me that Gavin had a PDA and ASD when born and that the PDA has closed but the ASD was still there and same size. He did not have a murmur today. The EKG was perfect. He said to come back in 6 months to evaluate and then again at 1 year. He said his ASD was not caused from DS or being premature. He also said it is not the ASD that requires open heart and that if it does not close on its own he will have catheterization to repair it around 1 years old. Gavin is doing great and we are happy he will not need open heart... we were hoping the ASD would be closed but I still have faith :) He is eating really well and is so physical strong. He is alert and attentive ... We are so blessed and love him so very much :) I asked him about Gavin's DS being so very mild and would that be the same mentally .. He referred us to a geneticists. I look forward to talking to them about it all.. I am so curious!

That sounds really good. I am glad for you that you got a good report. Keep the faith. The Lord desires us to be closer to Him and for me, I believe that He is drawing me closer to Himself through John. Keep posting. I enjoy reading about him.
