Charlie met with his Cardiologist yesterday afternoon, where he had a Doppler Echo and an Echo cardiogram and an EKG and some other stuff... at the end of which the doctor said that overall, he looks good. He has a bunch of little things like a Hypoplastic aortic isthmus (narrowing of the aorta), an enlarged PFO (funky little hole in the atrial septum) and something called an Innocent Pulmonary Brand Murmur. All of these things were noted at his first cardiogram in the NICU and seem to be righting themselves without any intervention. The Doc says these things will most likely continue to heal and lessen until the heart looks "normal" again. He'll have another check up in four months. So, good news all around!
