For Tre, it was a big and long day today. Yes had the standard ECG, vital signs check and chest x-ray that all of the children have when arriving for their initial assessment. However, what was not so typical was that Tre had two echos carried out today.
Tre is a very sweet 8 month-old girl with big brown eyes and a beautiful smile. She is like many of our Shevet children noticeably much smaller than her same aged peers with a healthy heart. However, having observed her echo today I can see that actually much more than her small frame could ever show us her existence is quite miraculous. Tre’s heart presentation is very complex with multiple structural problems present. The doctor carried a thorough echo following her initial echo earlier in the day in order to move forward to planning the next steps.
For Tre doctors will need as much information as possible about her heart. She will need to have a CT scan and a catheterisation before surgery for her is planned.
Please do pray for God to inspire the medical team with His knowledge and understanding which surpasses human minds. Also thank God for making this complex little one in his image.
