We have no home internet and won't until next Tuesday so sorry for the lack of updates or checking in on others' blogs. I am going crosseyed trying to read emails on my phone.
Dariya was a trooper at her cardiology appointment. They were ontime which made things go much smoother. She had an EKG and an echocardiogram.
She laid still and was happy as a clam during the testing. I am sure the cheerios helped.
Her doctor, Dr. Kaine has been to Ukraine numerous times to help train doctors over there and had a group of Ukrainian doctors come here to learn. How cool is that? He worked in Donesk.
Dr. Kaine looked at all her tests and said Dariya does have a tiny Patent foramen ovale (pfo). This is the opening that is present in everyone in utereo which usually closes very soon after birth however, 15% of the populations never closes. This is not causing her any problems nor will it probably ever need repair. If repair were needed they would do a simple catheter procedure later in life. We come back in two years to make sure all is still ticking away well.
Thanks for all the prayers.
In other news, Dariya's glasses should be in by the end of the week, sorry you will have to wait for next week so I can upload pics.
Dariya is also jumping on the potty bandwagon. She is signing and saying "papa" when she needs to go consistently. She has gone several days in a row with dry/clean pants at waking times. Yahoo one happy mama here(have you seen the price of diapers?)
Take care and more from our house next week!
