Cardiology and GI appointments...

Callie saw cardiology on Monday, everything was good. Her weight was still 19lbs. and her height still the same. Everything looked the same since her last echo, which is great. Now, she won't see cardiology until she gets back from her Jan. trip to California. Callie also saw GI on Wednesday for her throwing up, she has been throwing up more and more in the past 3 weeks and I wanted to try and work on get this resolved. Since, we know Callie doesn't have reflux and has had enough swallow studies, upper GI scans done to last her a life time. But, like always he blamed it on her heart and changed her reflux med to Prevacid and sent us on our way. So, we are going to continue to watch her and if things don't start improving we will be doing some blood work. Please pray for her GI issues and we get some relief from the vomiting and our upcoming trip to California. I'm already antsy about this trip! Will update more later with some pics, very tired and ready for bed. Hope everyone is enjoying the COLD weather:)
