Yearly Visit a Success

Isaac ready for his yearly visit to PCMC Cardiology
Isaac started with an Echocardiogram

Isaac gets an EKG before he visits with his cardiologist.

Isaac has been blessed to only need a yearly visit for the past few years.  Last June Isaac had a heart cath to close the fenestration in his Fontan.  Ever since the heart cath, Isaac's oxygen saturations have been in the low 90's (which is really good for his condition).  Today the cardiologist said that his heart is stable.  I am relieved to know that nothing has changed for the worse.  He still only has half a heart, and he still has a leaky tricuspid valve, and this does not mean he is cured, however he is able to live like a healthy boy for a while and that is a huge blessing.  One piece of good news this time is that his medicine has been decreased to one time a day and will possibly be eliminated next visit in a year.
