Heart of the Matter
Sheena has been stuck inside for the past 2 days, as it is freezing and blowing a gale outside. Her chest is still very crackly so I was not going to risk it. She has enjoyed a millon cuddles from Aunty Daphne and Sheila all the way from Canada. Even the Canadian's are finding it cold here.
She was reviewed by her cardiologist today, and her heart has improved. The Doc things her VSD has closed, but she still has a small ASD and PDA. He thinks they are smaller than before, and he only wants to see us in 2 years time for a review. Sounds good to us.
He thinks none of her current symptoms are related to her heart, but just that she's been hit with the double whammy of 2 isolated viruses at the same time. That's why she's dropped so much weight, and is still breathing hard. Like the doctors at the hospital he reminded us that this virus can take a month or several months to get over. Its going to be a long winter.
