Today the kids all saw various doctors, here's the rundown:
Sidney's heart looks great! His cardiologist is very pleased. We'll see him again in 6 months, but Sidney's heart couldn't look better right now. The biggest fear was that now that the narrowing of the valve was fixed that some leakage would result and need to be fixed later on. There is no leak at all and Sidney will not need another cardiology follow-up until he is 12 months old, and probably in another year he'd only need to see a cardiologist once each year.
Gyven is being referred to speech therapy and developmental for evals and possible therapy and to re-evaluate his prior autism diagnosis. He's a good candidate for preschool, however, and his pediatrician thinks his long-term outlook is great. He's been given a clean bill of health otherwise. He was very polite and cooperative.
Kyra was her usual shy and buttheaded self (that's my girl!), so it was difficult to get a clear idea of where she stands, but we've been referred to have her speech evaluated as well. While she is mostly on track her level of intelligibility is about half what they want for her age group, so we're going to re-check her hearing and speech to see what help, if any, she may need.
And now I need to go make some dinner.
