Since leaving the NICU last February, Sophie has been having routine echo cardiograms every few months to check the left side of her heart. She started off in the NICU on meds for high blood pressure, which likely caused some thickening on the left side of her heart. Her blood pressure has been great for the past 5 months, and the thickening has shown some improvement, however, the cardiologist and nephrologist wanted to keep an eye on her heart to make sure it continued to improve.
Today was a big day for Miss Sophie! She was released by the cardiologist, and does not have to go back unless we have concerns! Her echo cardiogram looked great! We are so relieved that we do not have to worry about her having a heart condition that could effect her long term. This girl is such a little fighter! It's so hard to believe that she hasn't even been home with us a year yet! This is a great way to start off our new year!
