On Wednesday we had Jillian's 6 month cardiology visit and MRI. These are always stressful days for us. Jillian has to be sedated for the MRI, which means clear liquids and NPO (nothing by mouth). I prepared some jello for her breakfast, thinking she would love it, nope she told me "Mom, I have told you 100 times I DON'T LIKE JELLO" oops, but she was happy with otter pops. She isn't a huge eater so this didn't seem to bother her! Once we arrived at PCMC, her anxiety grew as she knew an IV was coming. They unfortunately had to try 3 times before placing it in her arm instead of hand...poor girl, but she did awesome and of course loved getting 2 prizes for her trouble:)
Jillian hates to sleep and even under sedation tried to wake up during the MRI and had to be given more medication then they thought she would need, after that they thought she would sleep longer after, but NOPE not Jillian. She was awake as soon as them lifted her off the scanner! She did really well with recovery and we were out of there in record time.
Dr Everitt called to today with the official results- Severe Pulmonary Regurgitation, Mild Right Side Enlargement with Normal Heart Function. She said nothing had changed to much since last year...so YEAH! She wants to see us in 6 months before school starts. This was the best report we could have hoped for:)
