Caroline had her final post-op cardiology visit last Tuesday. Dr. Stamm gave her a clean bill of health, discontinued her final heart med, and doesn't want to see her again for an entire year! I was shocked. We thought for sure there would be more visits in the upcoming months, but apparently Caroline's heart is doing exactly what it needs to be doing. The hole is completely patched with no residual murmur. The surgery seems to have been a complete success. This being said, her heart is not 100% healed and it is still enlarged due to the extra strain put on her heart pre-surgery. The enlargement will take months to subside, and until then, her heart is still weaker than a "normal" heart, but this is all to be expected and we'll re-visit that issue at next year's cardiology appointment!
Despite the recent set back with the return of the vomiting, we've managed to have a fun end to our summer. Here a few pics of Caroline enjoying her friends and family.
Caroline had a great weekend with two of her Aunties. They even brought her a new slide!
