The Cardiologist

I woke up this morning on edge waiting for the doctor to call and tell us when we needed to be at the cardiologists. It seemed like it took forever, but he finally called. He told us we wouldn't have to go all the way to Colorado Springs because the doctor does a clinic in La Junta once a month and we got lucky that that day was today. John, Mary and I headed down there with baby in tow. We got there and after a butt load of paperwork and her first blow out diaper(it got all over the car seat) we went in. I just have to say Daphne is such a good baby. The nurse hooked her up to the EKG (there were about 10 cords attached all over her body) and of course she couldn't get it to work. After a few minutes of fiddling with it it was working, but she discovered it was also out of paper. Daphne sat there for about ten minutes perfectly still with no crying while the nurse got all of this set up. It was pretty amazing! The doctor checked the EKG results, listened to her heart and had her O2 stats checked with and with out her on oxygen and he determined there was nothing wrong going on with her heart. It was such a relief, but now we are back to square one with finding out why her O2 stats are so low. I called her pediatrician and we are going to keep her on oxygen and see what is next to do on our doctor visit on Friday. I'm really hoping we can find out what is going on quickly so we can get it fixed. Keep praying for little Daphne.
