We went to the cardiologist today and after 3 different reports from the orphanage doctor we were told today that Daria, for SURE, has.... A COMPLETE AV CANAL! Surprised? I'm actually surprised she's alive with that type of defect. This is the same thing that Brianna had and she was in congestive heart failure at 5 months old! Granted it's not as large as Bria's was (can't be) but still, we are surprised! So Cecil... if you'll please take note of that for your talk with the cardiologist we'd appreciate it. Her mitral valve is incorrectly formed but the other valve is fairly well functioning. Her pulmonary hypertension was pretty high but is now a little better and the cardiologist has NO flight concerns as long as she stays on her medications. YAY!!
