Most importantly, his Heart is looking Great!
Owain had a peds cardiology appointment a few weeks ago. Do you remember last month when I finally posted an update about is December appointment? Here it is in this post. It took me a while to post and update because I didn't like what I was hearing, so I figured I would just ignore the whole thing.
I am happy to say that this month's appointment was great news! Just as I mentioned in the other post, which was also an update from his latest hospital stay, his O2 sats are up. And it looks like they are staying up in the 80's which is just where we want them to be. While we were waiting for his cardiologist, he was getting bored, so we walked the hallways in clinic. When his cardiologist saw him walking up and down the halls, she said that is one of the best ways to tell how great he is going. I was very active and only just a little blue. He had no intention of stopping any time soon and would have been happy to continue to walk that call for much longer.
He had a full work up, with an echo, ekg and of course the pulse ox. Everything looked great! When we had our check up in December, we were at the point were we were scheduled for cardiology check-ups every 3-4 months, now we are every 6 months and it looks like surgery will not be until next year! Mostly likely it will be around the time he turns 3, so late next spring. We thought that his next surgery was going to be before the end of this year and now it is over a year a way. I know that things can change, and often do for Heart babies, and that anything could happen and his surgery may be pushed up again. For now we are so excited to be able to put it off for another year.
