Recently, we have noticed that olivia at night has been a little more swollen. We had an appointment in two weeks to see the cardiologist, but the worrier in me was thinking worse case scenarios. Congestive heart failure, pulmonary hypertension....only the worst! So, Brett called and they were able to get her in early. Yesterday, as I was getting the lowdown, brett got rear ended. So my dad had to bring her by himself. After an echo, ekg, exam, lab work and chest xray...all was cleared. The cardiologist thinks it is because she is gaining weight, not from compromised heart function. He increased her lasix to see if it helps. We are keeping the fingers crossed.
