Whatever It Was, It Was Not Her Heart.
We saw the cardiologist today. He looked over Letha's x-ray, EKG, blood tests, and CT scan from the ER Sunday night. He also gave her an Echocardiogram today. He listened very attentively to how I described Letha's pain and the course of it, what helped and what didn't help. After all that he feels that her pain was caused by a muscle spasm of her chest wall. It is very common in children and can be caused simply by growing. He does not feel that it was related to her heart at all. The Amplatzer device is right where it should be, doing the job that it's designed to do! All things heart-related look better than they looked a month ago. So, mystery solved.
