We got our written report from the cardiologist tonight and I thought I’d share my favorite parts:

On exam, she is an alert, bright, very lean but toned infant girl in no distress. She is exceedingly active throughout the visit with a penchant to bring her feet to her mouth. The head and neck examination is negative with a modest amount of drooling.

hee! And here’s the part about surgery timing being extended to who knows when (!):

I am encouraged by her weight gain and depending upon the ongoing progress that she makes over the next few months will guide us to determine whether we would proceed with surgery likely this fall or at a later date. As we had discussed in the past, I would be somewhat surprised if she would go on to spontaneously close this defect but as in many aspects of medicine, there is never a never and there is never an always. I think we can comfortably say that she is handling this defect quite well.

But even with that glorious paragraph,this is still my favorite part:

cc: father and mother: Pierce and Rebecca

    She recommends a form of leg lifts where you bring your foot to your mouth all day long. And sucking on toes provides an extra calorie burn for the swimsuit season.

    I’m laughing too hard at “Pierce” to formulate an appropriately witty comment. But what a fabulous report card. That’s one for the baby book, for sure. “Very lean and toned” = supermodel! “Penchant to bring her feet to her mouth” = f’ing awesome.
