Post cardiologist post

The appointment was fine. We go to two different hospitals: Boston Children's Hospital and Connecticut Children's Medical Center in Hartford. Really, the only doctor I trust completely is Kathy Jenkins at Boston, but I wanted to develop a relationship with the docs here in town in case we should need them on an emergent basis. We were in Hartford yesterday. No change. Good news. I am proud of her. She thinks it is normal to go to the cardiologist, and that many people she knows have 'special hearts'. I did not puke this time, thank you very much. I did tear up a bit when she had the 20+ leads on for the EKG. Sucks to see such a small person with many wires and such. But then I held it together for the rest of the tests, and got to leave within an hour with good news. I've had and seen enough echocardiograms at this point that I can almost read them to some degree. Lily's pediatrician has asked me several times what specialty of medicine I practice. Ha! Maybe that is his thinly veiled way of calling me an over-involved, micro-managing mom. I prefer to think of myself as well informed, if not a bit neurotic.

    It's never neurotic to get involved in your child's care. Hub and I became like heart specialists with Quinn - we knew everything. Just don't ask us about anything else unoless it was somehow related to the heart.
