We are blessed to have the best cardiologist who always makes time to talk and explain to us anything and everything.
Dr. Golander was thrilled to see Tehilla walking around and looking great. We talked about Tehilla's heart rate. He explained that her body is adjusting to the new circulatory system that she has. It's not shocking that this happened.
What he is happy about is that her body is stable while her heart rate is bouncing around. If her other vitals were fluctuating or she wasn't eating, drinking or being active then there would be cause for concern. But she is the complete opposite. She is doing great! So, we want to be thorough and make sure that we aren't missing anything, but not overly concerned.
She will have more blood tests done and a Holter monitor has been ordered for tomorrow morning. She will wear a Holter monitor for 24 hours that will monitor her heart rate and blood pressure. It will see record her readings while active, eating, sleeping and everything in between to get a full picture.
As long as there are no setbacks, we have been told we will be coming home this week. In time for next weekend. Of course, we have to see how things go, so we don't know any specifics right now.
