Re: [FH] enlarged heart
- 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. :)
