GRACIE AND THE CARDIOLOGIST
Here I am getting checked in. Dana went with us. She's my friend from Brentwood and she held me and lifted me and that was nice. See how good I am.
Dana is holding me while Tyler checks my BP.
Dr Small is the cardiologist and she is checking me. I really love getting all this attention! I am such a special girl!
Dr Small is giving me a kiss and telling me how good I was. Then they made Mom and Dana leave and they did an ultra sound and Xray and I did not like that. Dr. Small says I have a mild murmur and she will follow that with another check in four months but my squished face is creating some problems in breathing and when I go back the surgeon will look down my throat to see if he can help. She wants me to cut back on my treats and lose a bit of weight and to not overexert myself or get overheated. We were there about three hours and I was sooo tired. Mom was tired too. Linda did you see how I kept smiling while they were checking me? Wasn't that nice???? (Gracie, I saw how brave you were!!"
