Update On The Lil Man

Some of you may know that my youngest little guy had been diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease this happened in May 2 weeks after he turned 1.
 We have been seeing a pediatric cardiologist since then to have EKG's & Echo cardiograms on his heart. Kawasaki Disease can affect the child's heart unfortunately for C he developed a small aneurysm on his left coronary artery. So we have been watching the progress of it. He was on a high dose of baby aspirin but at our appointment in July they took him off that as his aneurysm began to shrink.

If you want to read about all we went through & gain a little more knowledge on Kawasaki Disease you can read Part 1 & Part 2 


I thought first I'd share some pictures of how our routine appointments at the cardiologist go first they weigh & measure him & take his blood pressure (I didn't take any pics of that).

Next comes the EKG:


Then after the EKG we move onto the Echo Cardiogram:





So what did they find.....????

His aneurysm is gone!! Thank the Lord!!!  The cardiologist told me I could breathe again! I was soo happy!!! We are still keeping a journal of his joint issues both with his pediatrician & his cardiologist.  But, the main thing is his little heart is back to normal.  Even though his aneurysm is gone we still will have follow ups with the cardiologist for a long time we don't have to go back for another 6 months :)

So I'm a happy happy mommy right now :)
