Trip to the cardiologist

Trey went to the cardiologist today to diagnose his heart murmer. He was such a good boy. This made the visit alot more pleasant. First the nurse checked his blood pressure and O2 saturation which were all good. He was grabbing at the cords so I had to hold his arms, but other than that he was an angel. The nurse said he was her favorite patient. His Dad was at the appointment too and helped put him to sleep at one point in time. Tony was such a big help. We were there for over 2 hours. When he went for his EKG, the nurse asked if he would take a pacifier. Of course he does, but he didn't need it at all. He stayed still during the EKG so it only took a few minutes. He also had an ultrasound of his heart. This went well until she needed me to hold his head back. He screamed and screamed. The Dr. was so great and explained everything to us. Trey does have a heart murmer. On a scale from 1 to 6 it is a level 2. The Dr. diagnosed it as trileaflet aortic valve acting as a bilateral valve. He should have no issues from it. We have a follow up appointment next year to check on it. Everything is OK though. We are so relieved and thankful. This kid really likes to scare and worry his parents. I am sure this is just the beginning though :)
