Not Good Results

We are waiting to go for an echo. We just spoke with Professor Rein, the head of pediatric cardiology, and Dr. Tashma, another cardiologist. They have the results of Tehilla's holter monitor.

The results were not good. Tehilla's heart remained mostly in the 40s most of the night. In addition, it seems that her heart skipped a beat at one point. The fact that her heart rate is so low when she sleeps, could be fine. But not that her heart missed a beat.

They don't have any clear answers right now, but it's worrisome. Our cardiologist comes back next week and they will talk to him and our surgeon. They want to redo the holter monitor in two weeks to rule out any randomness because she is post-op.

They are discussing the possibility of putting in a pacemaker and keeping it on standby, should her heart stop. This means another surgery.

Right now, everyone is processing the information and nothing is conclusive. We will do an echo now and probably still be sent home.

We are very much not out of the woods and Tehilla could really use prayers.
