It’s been about 2 years since I had to see Dr. J, my heart doctor. I was so strong and healthy that he didn’t have to see me for a while.
But today it was time to go see him again and take a little test. First they checked to see how big I was. 30 lbs 7 oz and 38.5 inches is what they said I was. Mommy thinks that’s big. Everyone else seems to think it’s little since I’ll be 6 in a couple weeks. I say it’s just right!
Then I talked to one new doctor. He was nice but he wanted me to lay on my back so he could listen to me. And I do NOT like to lay on my back at all. Mommy is stronger than me, though, so I couldn’t get up even though I wanted to. It was over quick, though.
After him, we went next door to see Mr. Jim, and he gave me a couple tests. One was EKG and it had lots of cold sticky things on my skin. I didn’t like that. And since I don’t like to lay on my back, Mommy sat down first and then I leaned back on her, even though I didn’t want to, but she was stronger than me again. They put on some TV I like and Mommy sang me some songs, and I let them do the test.
But after he took the stickies off for the EKG, he put a few more on for a test called the echo. I sat pretty still with Mommy holding onto me tight. And guess what…. I passed all my tests!
Dr. J came and saw me after my tests and said I was doing really good! He said I’m doing the right things since I do swim and cheer and school and lots of stuff. He said it keeps my heart strong.
The best news is that I don’t have to go back and see Dr. Johnson for 3 years!! Woo hoo! I like him a lot, but it’s a good thing when you don’t have to see your heart doctor all the time.
Mommy and Daddy are going to help me make up a letter and some pictures to send to Dr. F, because he is the one who fixed my heart up really good back when I was a tiny baby. We think he will like to see how big and strong I am now!
