Cardiology Visit

Maren had and AWESOME visit to the cardiologist today! Last time we went, she was a total freak show! It began in the waiting room. She went into a fit when her name was called to go back, held her breath and induced a seizure. Good times. The rest of the visit wasn't much better.

That did not happen today :) This visit was the polar opposite of last time. She hopped on the scale and laughed, almost hysterically, when they lowered the little hat thing down to measure her height; she was very excited to have EKG stickers all over her chest and belly (less than excited when said stickers came off); had a big old goofy smile on her face while she watched the red light of the pulse oximeter light up her fingernail bed; sat perfectly still watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on Randy's i-Pod while having 2 blood pressures taken; giggled every time a doctor touched her because it tickled; and finally, she yelled out, "cheese!" while having her x-ray done! Not that I'm complaining, but what the hell, Maren? What a difference 6 months make!

The medical side of the visit was just as good. Her EKG was fine, her blood pressures were "great," her heart and lungs sounded good. I think her x-ray was okay. We left after it was done and haven't heard from anyone. The only thing that I wasn't sure about was her pulse ox. It was 100%. It is pretty neat to see Maren as pink as they come, but the fear of PLE is always lurking in the back of my mind. Whatever. The doctor was okay with it and Maren's doing awesome, so I'm not going to read anything into it.

So in conclusion... Freakin' awesome visit! Yay for God, yay for Dr. Jonas, yay for Dr. Donofrio, and yay for everyone at CNMC who got Maren to where she is today. Yay for umich, too, but lets be honest-- Children's did all the dirty work!
