Another trip to the Cardiologist

Both girls went back to the cardiologist. The last time I posted about the cardiologist, Addison was being taken off her heart medication as they thought she was outgrowing the SVT. We took her off the meds and put her on a Holter monitor for 24 hours. A few weeks later the office called to say she had an SVT episode where her heart rate was in the 180's-200's for a period of time. So they advised us to put her back on the meds. This visit was a follow up to see what to do about the medication for Addison and an ultrasound to look at Riley's heart. Riley's heart has formed correctly and the small holes she had closed up and there is barely a detectible heart murmer. Riley is now discharged from the Cardiologist. Yay baby girl!!! As for Addison, the Cardiologist wants to double the dose of medication she is taking for the next 4 months and then try to wean her again with another 24 hour monitor. We are hoping she won't have any episodes in the next 4 months and she can grow out of the condition and be free of medication Here are some pictures from the day as well as a video of them playing while they were waiting for the doctor to come in. They are just wearing their diapers and happy to be naked. Riley: Addison:
