Appointment update!

Well, the prayers are STILL working!! I have good news and bad news. The good news is that there is no more and no less valve leakage in Linden's heart. The bad news is there is no more and no less valve leakage in Linden's heart. That means that the medicines are still working, but there still is quite a bit of leakage. Linden is currently on 5 medications-- Enalapril, Sotalol, Asprin, Lasix and Digoxin.

To everyone who comes in contact with her mentions how she doesn't seem like a sick baby, but there are some things that I've noticed about her, especially since starting the Enalapril and the Digoxin and getting back on Lasix. She used to have good muscle tone, but since those meds, she's been alot weaker. Her legs, at times, are very floppy. She was working on standing up when being held, but now I'm lucky if she has enough strength to play in her excersaucer. Her eyes have very dark circles underneath and they're always tearing up. Sometimes, at night, she will toss and turn for hours until she finally falls asleep. I believe that the Lasix does that to her because it starts happening within the day when she starts on Lasix. *she's been on it 3 times since November*
