AR's heart update

We went back to UAB yesterday for Anna Riley's one year check on her heart with Dr. Carlo.  We didn't get the news we really wanted but it wasn't necessarily bad either. We were hoping that she had outgrown the premature heart rhythms that she was having last year.  Dr. Carlo said he is still hearing the same thing he did last year but that she really might not ever outgrow it. The good news is, it doesn't really affect her.  He said she might notice a difference and eventually be able to tell me her heart feels funny at times (kind of like people with heart murmurs). He still wanted her to wear the holter for 24 hours again to monitor her heart to make sure there weren't any other irregularities.  I was a little worried about her wearing it this time but she did great...she kept calling the actual monitor part her phone! haha.  The nurses all bragged on her yesterday too because she would just lay back and let them do what they needed to do.  She was such a big girl.  She also wore her monitor to school today and did great with it.  She was very excited to take it off after her nap though!  We get the results back in a few days. 

What a difference a year makes!
