I went to meet my new cardiologist today * DR.COBER * .. he is young and BALD .. BOL !! , he as very , very nice.... he gave me a GREAT exam and said that nothing much had changed from my last visit in May per Dr. Fergusons notes... so he didn't think i needed to have an echo done this visit.. instead they did a chest xray as mommy told him how much coughing i have been doing especially in the mornings and the past 2 days.. good news is there is no fluid in my lungs or around the heart .. bad news is my left atrium of my heart is so very enlarged that it is really pressing on my trachea and the bronchi in my lungs are thicker compared to my last chest xray ... so he has put me on a cough suppressant to help relax the trachea and an antibiotic to take care of any infection there maybe in my lungs.. mom hopes it doesn't mess with my stomach .. god knows i have enough trouble with that as it is .. i will see him back in 4 to 5 months for my echocardiogram unless i have any other problems . So .. really it was a good visit .. and mom is so glad she took me in a month before my scheduled appointment!

Buttercup & Mom !

p.s. i gained 6 ounces !! woohoo !!!

Oh Buttercupi, that is WONDERFUL news that you are staying stable. I hope the cough suppressant will ease the coughing so you can be more comfortable. Your story is so inspiring and I hope and pray that I will do as well as you have been. You have a wonderful mommy to take care of you.

PS - young and bald....lucky you ;)
