Jeremiah did awesome during his echo. He laid there, watched cartoons, and completely ignored everything else that was going on lol. The tech said she wished they were all as easy.
We are supposed to hear back this morning on the results. It's the wait that kills me. I'll update when they call.


**Childrens hospital finally called! They said his ech was completely normal! Finally something positive our way :) what a relief!

Oh wow, we have always gotten my son's echo results during the appt. We see the cardio, then they do the echo and EKG and then we see the cardio again (sometimes she comes in during the echo) to go over everything.

I hate waiting for results like that!

It's an echocardiogram. It is like an ultrasound of the heart, but instead of being all black and white, you can also see red (oxygenated blood) and blue (non-oxygenated blood) as it flows through the heart.

We never even saw the cardio, just the tech that did the echo. She said the drs would look at everything, make their report and send it to the ordering physician. Then that office would call me. It was the pulminologist that ordered it and they never call back on test results until late in the day. Drives me nuts. If I don't hear from them today I'll call first thing tomorrow. Just nerve wracking waiting to hear if your 3 year olds heart is working right lol

Oh wow.  Yeah, I hate waiting for results, especially when you have to keep on top of the doctor's office because they don't call.  I hope you get good news!
