|The good news is that there is nothing on the lung. The doctor said the spot on the Xray was a shadow from his nipple. Thick nipples.
Not sure who he inherited that from. So now, the hyperbaric therapy is the way to go. Happy about that!
We got some strange news also. The human heart takes blood in from the body into the right side of the heart, pumps it into the lungs and has it returned to the left side of the heart which then pumps it back out to the body. Steve is unique. His heart is plumbed backward! Less than 2% of the world's population has this strange
anonmoly. Leave it to Steve. He always has to be different. It's nothing to worry about. Just different.
Lastly, we got what could be some bad news. Steve has an aneurism on his aorta. The doctor said they don't usually do anything with one until it reaches a 5. Steve's is a 4. We have an appointment with a cardiac surgeon next Monday afternoon. If any of you have any experience with an aneurism, please share. My Poppa had one inside his heart and had to have open heart surgery. Don't know if DH's bears any similarity. I know his is not insidethe heart. I don't know anything about the scale they use to measure one or determine it's severity. While we are certainly thanful and greatful to God for the good news, this is a worrisome thing. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.
