Cardiology Appointment

At the beginning of October, Apple saw a cardiologist. While there wasn't anything apparently wrong, often, children with Apert's Syndrome can also have anomalies of the heart. Luckily, Apple's heart checked out just fine on an EKG and ultrasound.

She was perfectly happy until the nurse tried to take her blood pressure. Apple started to cry and cry and they wanted to take a reading on all four limbs. It took about 40 minutes. By the time the EKG rolled around, Apple was very tired from all the crying. I gave her a bottle of milk, which calmed her enough to get a good EKG reading and she fell asleep during the ultrasound (she sleeps with her eyes open).
