Day 2 of furlough started with a cardiology appointment at 8:45 am for Kamran. I obviously scheduled an early appointment to accommodate my work day. When I chose this week as my furlough week I decided to let the early appointment stand and I’m glad I did. It was nice to still have a full day.

We went to the cardiologist yesterday to check on Kamran’s ASD. He was born with an ASD (Atrial Septal Defect), PDA (Patent Ductus Arteriosos) and PPS (Peripheral Pulmonary Stenosis). The PDA resolved in the NICU and PPS had resolved by the time he was 2 months, his last follow up at the cardiologist. At the 2 month follow up the ASD shrunk but was still there. Our good news yesterday? The ASD has completely resolved! It’s gone. No more heart follow ups, no more EKGs and no more echocardiograms! I have to say though, Kamran really liked this particular cardiologist. So much so that he followed him out of the office when the appointment was over.

After the cardiologist, we went to visit with Aunt Nikki and her mommy. Aunt Nikki has 3 dogs, and Xander, the teacup yorkie just LOVED the pint sized human who is Kamran. Kamran loved him back. The first 20 minutes of our visit was filled with a curious, hoppy puppy and a belly laughing baby. Eventually Nikki and Mrs. Rita pulled out lots of loot they were prepared to spoil Kamran with. Books, a reading toy and…a huge, fun car for Kamran to ride in. We drove him around the living room a bit and then he took over and did the pushing. After all of that fun was had we went to lunch at one of my favorite taco places. TIPPYS! It was good to catch up with family yesterday. Kam had fun, I did too…and Kamran went to bed an entire hour early. We wore his butt out!!
