Baby Zane


SO I think most everyone knows but I just wanted to post and let everyone know Zane is doing good. He had a heart murmur when he went for his recent check up, so they made me take him to a pediatric cardiologist. Up at Primary Children's he had a chest x-ray, and an echocardiogram and saw a great doc. He has VSD (ventricular septal defect) or a hole in his heart. It's in between the bottom two chambers and I guess this is pretty common in babies. He's been put on Lasix (a diurectic) to help ensure he doesn't get too much fluid in his lungs and he has a follow up in January. Most of the time these close up on their own but if it doesn't he'll have to undergo a simple open heart surgery. But he's a very happy, and healthy baby and is doing fine and will be just fine!

He is such a cutie Jana! I Hope his heart heals on its own.

Jana, he sure is the sweetest little one. It was good to read the update; now all we have to do is pray and pray Zane to the best of health with healing on his own.

Poor little guy. Hopefully he will heal up and won't have to do surgery.

You know, it's amazing how these little angels are able to outgrow some of these scary ailments. Though, sometimes they don't, they always heal miraculously and are back to normal before we even know it! He is a cutie and will go far in life!
