Medical update.

 We visited the cardiologist today and went to his pediatrician. The Cardiologist is from Pittsburgh but comes to the Altoona Hospital to see his patients every Friday. He is a really great guy and loves Case.:) Case is doing well heart wise and will get an echo at Children's on the 26th. The echo is to check for the PFO. He weighs 12 pounds now! YAY. As far as him refusing to eat by mouth, I had a long talk with his gastro doctor, Dr. Ruldolf. He is such a fantastic doctor! He said we don't want Case to loose all desire to eat by moth. He put him on a new medication that I give him 3 times a day 15 minutes before a feed. It is suppose to help him empty his stomach so he feels more hunger and should help stop the retching. He has been on it for 2 days and if it isn't helping lessen the retching after 5-7 I'm to call him back. 

Case is eating very little the last couple days, more then he was but nott much. We shall see what the feeding clinic at Children's hospital says on the 26th.:)

Playing at Cardiology today.:)
