Longest cardiology appointment ever..........

We went in for an annual cardio check up today - I am plain worn out.  We were gone for five hours at their office but it was the most complete and thorough appointmet I think I have ever had.  No messing around - EKG, Sonogram of heart - exam - halter monitor - wow!  And a great doctor.  Very in tune with kids like Meg and what to look for.   Meeting with him made all the wait times in between worth it.  Heart checked out good.  Apparently the mitochondrial disease has not affected the heart from the standpoint of it pumping and beating.  That is great news.  I had a lump in my throat while we waited to hear.  The heart and brain are the organs that use the most energy.  I feel relieved.

Decided that tomorrow we are going to go back in to the HBOT chamber for 90 minutes a day.  Got to just do it - help that brain out!

Good idea,Terri! Lie down with her and rest if it is possible.
It would probably do you some good too.

Love to all of you,
