The ECHO is loud and clear!

Rafa had an excellent ECHO reading this morning!
He has a nice, strong, well-formed heart with no visible damage from being pushed around by the other organs in his chest. SO nice to be leaving the hospital with a huge piece of good news...
Why this is so important:
1. A normal heart means the likelihood of an undetected chromosomal abnormality compromising his recovery is far less.
2. A strong, healthy heart will help him to combat any pulmonary hypertension he's going to experience while his heart and lungs work to strike a balance.
Raise a glass! Have a hot fudge sundae (we did)!


  1. Hooray!!!! This little guy follows right along with the Searches - a big and generous heart!!

  2. Congrats! I'm so excited for you ... that's a huge blessing, and hopefully a little bit of a weight off of your chest!

  3. Yay!!! This is WONDERFUL news! Go Rafa! Sending lots of love from the Escobars.
