It really is a different experience each time we have a cardiology visit. Today it was just Addy & I for our appointment. Heath was at work receiving text & picture play-by-plays of each part of the visit. Last year, at 2 1/2 years old, I can remember a meltdown over having to lay down for an EKG and making valiant efforts to try to get her to participate in walking saturations (run up and down hall x3 and then check oxygen saturation) that did NOT happen because she really just wanted mommy to carry her and was not going to participate in anything that included walking on her own two feet.
Today was a different story! She did everything that was asked, including the walking saturations (with mommy of course) and acted like an old pro! She knew every cue point of when to ask for stickers, snacks, and prizes....and even explained her special heart and white blood cells to Dr Kavenaugh! That being said, of course I had to document the whole visit with pictures! I'll give you the final reveal at the end of all these pics showing our very long day!
