Cardio follow up today was really good. Maybe because it was his birthday, Athan was in a great mood. Instead of tears and fear about the Echo or EKG, he giggled about all the "stickers" and told the nurse "thanks for listening to my heart." Super charming all morning long.
The report: blood cultures were clean (=no more ibuprofen), no fluid around his heart (=no more LASIK), incision site looks great (=no more steri strips), and no leakage in the valve (=no more surgeries).
= hallelujah!!! :)
