We were handed a referral and told to make an appointment with a pediatric cardiologist for further evaluation. Even though I knew that this is common and most often benign, there remained an undercurrent of fear until the cardiology appointment.
The day of the appointment, Satch donned his cape and equipped himself with a metal sifter and tea diffuser. We were a sight to behold. On the bus a woman asked, "What's he gonna do with those?", and Satch answered, "I need these to rescue a deer". She looked back at me puzzled. "To rescue deer", I repeated.
Satch was worried about the cardiogram, but I told him that he could take home the electrodes for his doctor kit and I would take his photo for Dada which produced an instant smile. The doctor listened to his heart for a long time and determined that the ekg was normal and the murmur was (thankfully) benign. Then he asked, "What's he gonna do with those?". "Rescue deer", Satch replied. The doctor glanced over at me. "Rescue deer", I explained.
We're leaving early tomorrow to spend Thanksgiving with family. Have a happy holiday and see you Monday!
