Karter's 6 Week Check-Up

Today Karter had his 6 week check-up with the cardiologist. He had to have an x-ray and EKG. He did fantastic on both, only saying he wanted to go home a few times.

Everything looked good. He will go back in 6months for a Echo cardiogram to have a closer look and make sure tissue is forming correctly around the occluder.

In 6 weeks Karter has gained 3lbs, no longer requires more sleep than Kolton and has so much energy. He has always been active, but required about two more hours of sleep than Kolton and he ate but now he really eats.

It's know that children with heart issues sometimes have difficulty gaining weight, require more sleep or tire easily. I didn't think that Karter fit into that category before, I think I might have been wrong.

I'm so glad it's over and Karter is doing more than fine.
