One Less Doctor

More great news to report from the Wakefield clan. We had our monthly cardiologist visit this week. Lucas had an echo, the first since being inpatient in Seattle. Lucas' diagnosis since pregnancy has been a VSD and an ASD, ventricular septal and arterial septal defect. Well, as of Thursday the VSD is almost completely gone! The Dr said it was about the size of a pin prick. The ASD is bound to close up on its own and really cause no health problems. We won't be having monthly visits anymore and we don't have to return until Lucas is 1! We are so excited and I love having a Dr's appointment out of the way.

We also met with the neuro optimologist. It went good. He used a lot of foreign terms and big words that I didn't know, but over all it was good. He said that Lucas can see its just that his vision is under developed which we pretty much knew. The vision therapist was there with us during the appointment so she took notes and will probably explain everything to me again. He showed us a few techniques to work on with him too. Overall it was a great experience.
