The Final Cardiology Visit

Went to Lana's cardiologist today and it went like this...

Dr.Burkholder: I got some bad news
Me: (blank look on my face but my heart is sinking)
Dr.Burkholder: I'll never get to see you guys ever again... (sad look on his face)
Me: (I look at the floor just to make sure I didn't pee in my pants)

After taking her EKG and ECHO he says there is no reason to keep seeing him. It's as if nothing ever happened. 

During this visit, the cardiologist also had a resident present with him. He explained to him that Lana was the sickest baby he has ever had to take care of in his career. He proceeded to mention that there was a point where Lana was so sick and her pulmonary hypertension so high that her ventricle would barely quiver instead of closing completely to pump blood. He finally disclosed to us that she had a 90% mortality rate and he was in the process of recommending palliative care. This was the point where the goosebumps came and shivers went down my spine. 

She fought her way out of that hole and there are no traces of any damage to her heart. God is good. 

Side note: Apparently she broke the record in his office for having the most ECHOs taken. 

 Taken after she was finally done crying from getting her EKG and ECHO completed.
