      Hi Kristin,

      Yes she had an xray, ultracardiogram and saw a cardiologist. She has a
      gallup rhythm, enlarged heart. She had a small accumulation of fluid which
      they believed was in her lungs (it barely showed up - that's never been
      entirely clear to me) and scant fluid in her abdomen.

      No problem for the questions. Thanks for the hugs. :)

      Cathryn.
