Cardiologist Appointment #2
Today was our second pediatric cardiologist appointment. Going in you don't know what to think. Part of you thinks well I already know about the defect so that makes it a little easier. Then there is part of you that prays they don't find anything else. We are happy to say that there is no new news. What we know is that Carson has an AV Canal Defect. Here is a link that explains it for those of you interested : http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Conditions/CongenitalHeartDefects/AboutCongenitalHeartDefects/Complete-Atrioventricular-Canal-defect-CAVC_UCM_307023_Article.jsp. He will have to be medicated a few weeks after birth and will need surgery around 4-6 months. We want him to be a strong and healthy as possible for the surgery. This will be a scary waiting game. I love our doctor and she seems very optimistic about everything. We just have to put our trust in her and God.
