Barrett went to the cardiologist this morning for a check up and his heart is looking good! Normally, they weigh him and do his EKG first thing, which require him to be undressed. Well, he HATES being naked because he gets cold (and he is modest too, I think~). Today, I dressed him in lots of layers with his snuggly blanket outfit on top so he would be extra toasty before and we could wrap him up quickly afterward. It worked! He cooperated very well. He weighed in at 11lb 0.7oz, so he is gaining weight like a champ. His EKG still shows possible signs of a predisposition to heart excitement, but his echocardiogram measured his ejection fraction in the normal range which means his heart is beating properly! Yay! No signs of SVT! Who-hoo!!
