When Alyse was born, she had two tiny holes in the upper chambers of her heart and a slightly low heart rate. It's not something that's totally uncommon in newborns (especially preemies). So, it wasn't much of a concern, but they asked us to follow up with a cardiologist when she was 6 months old. I took her in on Monday for the followup and they ran a lot of tests. As expected, the holes have closed, but her heart rate was still a little low. Although she doesn't have any obvious symptoms of any heart issues, they decided to put her on a 24-hour monitor just to get a more detailed reading of her heart rate. We'll get the results in about a week, but don't expect it to show any problems. As you can see, she tolerated it very well and remained her normal, happy self!
