We had another visit with our usual specialist, Dr. Bleich today. She was pleased and encouraged by the cardiologist's report. She was also pleased with Matilda's growth, which is normal and good. Her heart (right atrium) is still very large, but doesn't seem like it's growing at the same rate. Of course, this doesn't mean that it's shrunk, but that her body is growing and, it seems, the heart growth rate slowing slightly. We think/hope. Thankfully, we don't have another visit to Fort Worth until the 21st of December, which is a great blessing. The trips are becoming very tiring.
So, all in all, no news is good news! Above is a video of the ultrasound that they did today. Starting around 2:00, you can see the size of the heart and, more sweetly, Matilda's face. There are more images of the face later on in the video.
