Update

Sorry I didn't get back sooner on Baron's visit to Dr. Goodwin but got a bad stomach bug on Thursday and am just now feeling better. Had to drive to Tinton Falls, NJ (about 1 hour 40 minutes) and then home (about 3+ hours) and didn't think I would survive. Wanted DH to drop me off on the side of Route 80 to die!!!

Anyway, Dr. G. did an echo anyway just to make sure nothing was going on and again, it was normal. All numbers in range and no enlargement. Relief! Will be sending the holter back tomorrow or Wednesday depending on Hurricane Sandy and then the wait begins! Thanks everyone for your support. Couldn't do this without DT!

Just a few photos of Baron's playdate with his cousins last Wednesday:

Oh for shame!


Miley in charge!


Hugs!

Just saw this thread for the first time and I'm so sorry! But that's great his echo results are normal. Its so good you did the testing to find this. The earlier heart meds are started, the better.

Glad he's doing well and love the pics Hope you are feeling better too!

Thanks Burns. If it not for DT, I might have done the early testing. So now I feel and hope we have given him some extra years of life.

Holter Results

Dr. Goodwin, Baron's cardiologist, just called me with Baron's holter results. I think I need a drum roll: He had all zeros! No VPC's at all. I am in total shock. He said if I wanted to extend his echo and holter for a year, we could or just the echo in a year and keep the holter at every 6-9 months. I opted to do the holter again in 6-9 months and the echo at year.

Thanks everyone for their support. Could not have gotten through this without DT.

Just for information purposes, I ask Dr. G. if he saw a lot of Dobes respond this well to the meds and he stated that he has seen some but not in large numbers. I feel so blessed that Baron is one of them.
