April 5, 2013 Another follow up Echocardiogram

Andrea and I took Evan for another Echocardiogram.  He had to be sedated again.  This time he did not want to go to sleep as easily!  He had taken a 20 minute power nap in the car on the way and didn't want to go to sleep for nurse Jenny!  After some struggling he finally went to sleep and they could start the echo.

Everything went smoothly and he woke up well from the sedation.  We had a few hours between the echo and they visit with the cardiologist so we walked across the street to have lunch.  It was Evan's first time to sit in his stroller without the infant carseat.  What a big boy!

We went back up to the waiting room after lunch and waited for the doctor.  Poor baby was so tired and fussy from the sedation!  He drank a big bottle and went back to sleep!

His cardiologist was quick and easy once he came in!  He said that his arteries were normal and that we could stop the prednisone now and also stop the baby aspirin!  We are able to start spreading out the time between the echocardiograms.  We won't need to return for 6 weeks for another echo!

We are so blessed and happy that he is getting better!  Thank you everyone for the thoughts and prayers!  We are so grateful for each and every one of you!!!
