Mabel's Follow up cardiology appt
Let me start off by saying that she was such a GOOD girl during the whole appt. She had an EKG to confirm something was not 100%. She then had a check up by the dr in which she just looked up at him with her big blue eyes while he listened to her heart. Lastly, she had an ultrasound. What did they find...
1. She has a MILD Pulmonary Valve Stenosis (P
A patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a defect in the septum (wall) between the two upper (atrial) chambers of the heart. Specifically, the defect is an incomplete closure of the atrial septum that results in the creation of a flap or a valve-like opening in the atrial septal wall (see illustration). A PFO is present in everyone before birth but seals shut in about 80% of people.
So this sounds like a lot of not so good news but both are small and mild. He said she is thriving and we should treat her like we have been doing for the last year. All is good.
Love you Miss Mabel
