Just returned from the pediatric cardiologist and everything went great. Ben was a real trouper and did everything asked of him. They had Curious George on a small TV mounted up high so he was able to watch that while they did their thing. After that, we went to another room where he had his blood pressure taken and then they did an EKG. I forgot that they do that so I did not warn him ahead of time so he was a bit disappointed about having to do something again but he did it without complaint and I read a book to him while they did that. I also told him we would go for ice cream on the way home, which made him happier.
The doctor said that he still has a tiny whole in his heart. It is only about 2mm in diameter so it is very tiny. She said it is smaller than it was two years ago. We have to go back in two years and do it all again and we are hoping it will be gone. The tiny hole should not impact him at all while he is young but when he is older it could make it more likely for him to have a stroke. She said if that happened, they would fix the hole at that time but it did not need to be fixed while he is young.
In other news, I have another cold, which is a real bummer. Off to fix dinner now.
