We took Maddie to see Dr. Heller on September 7. Maddie was VERY nervous about going. I can’t say I blame her – knowing what her sister’s been through.
This appointment was a way for us to confirm there’s nothing wrong with Maddie’s heart. I was a bit concerned after hearing aboutÂ all these children who were dropping dead of undetected heart defects.
Maddie has a PERFECT heart! (Thank you GOD!).Â She weighs 41 lbs and is 43″ tall.Â Her oxygen sat was 99% and her blood pressure was 94/60.
Dr. Heller did an EKG and an echocardiogram on Maddie. We had to convince her the EKG wouldn’t hurt and once she had a sticker on her that didn’t hurt, she was good to go.Â Her “favorite” part was the “jelly on the belly” as we called the echo.Â I actually had a hard time understanding Maddie’s heart since I’m so used to Olivia’s.
