After small boy's troubling echo in April, his stress test in May and his MRI on June 1st, we didn't hear anything for a while.
Eventually, in July, I called to make sure he was o.k. to fly to visit family.
In August, I called again to ask what the treatment plan was--and learned that instead of surgery, small boy will just be having more frequent follow up visits with his cardiologist.
I still haven't seen a report on the MRI findings, but I figure they must have been reassuring since we are not scheduled to return to the cardiologist until late October.
In the meantime, he is enjoying first grade and his teacher is trying to find ways to help him productively channel all of his energy.
Once again, there will be no long range plans being made by this family--nothing beyond October 26.
