Ben's heart

We had our appointment with the cardiologist yesterday to find out more about Ben's heart issue.

They did an EKG first and then we met with the doctor. He was concerned with the EKG results, so he repeated the echocardiogram (heart ultrasound)which had been done last week in the NICU.

Basically, it showed some improvement in one of the issues that typically resolves on it's own. Another issue has not resolved, but is normal in 1/3 of adults and will not cause any complications.

The third problem has not improved. But it is not anything that needs intervention at this time. We will continue to monitor it and pray for improvement. If it gets worse, it is something that can be fixed surgically.


  1. Great news! God has it all under control.

  2. Awesome news! Thanks for the update, and we will continue to pray for him.

  3. Sounds like you guys are on top of everything and they will know what to be watching for! Praying for complete healing!

  4. Congratulations!!! Sorry for the delayed congrats - we had no idea until reading your blog today. We are soooooo happy for you three!!! Prayers will definitely be said for baby Benjamin for continued healing. We are thinking of you guys. This is so amazing!
