Keep us updated on her progress!
Thank you! We went back to the cardiologist yesterday and she indeed weighs 1 lb 11 oz more than she did when they first calculated her dose! She went from .75mL to .85mL. Unfortunately, it seems to be getting a little bigger since our appointment last Friday with the plastic surgeon. I'm going to contact him and see if he thinks we should get a little more aggressive.
