Februuary 5, 2011 My 2D ECHO

Deary Diary,

I just had my 2D Echo in Hi Precision with Mommy, Lola Mama, Lolo Caloy, my brother Ethan and cousin TJ today after my VARICELLA shot yesterday. My Pedia-Cardio said my heart is fine, thank God!

2D Echo procedure ongoing...

Me saying - "I'm Good!"
Lola Mama, Kuya Tj, Ethan and Me after my 2D echo :D

After having a KAWASAKI Disease way back 2007, my heart's left valvula had a "mild mitral regurgitation" or "singaw" in Filipino term. So now, it's my 4th 2D echo already and I still need to continue monitoring my heart to avoid any problems in the future so I need to come back again after 2 years.
Kawasaki is a deadly disease, a very rare one and scary. I really had a hard time having KAWASAKI especially my mom and dad (emotionally, physically and financially) for I was only 1 year and 2 months old. To give you some info about this sickness, here's the symptoms I had before....

Symptoms of KAWASAKI are :
  • severe redness in the eyes
  • a rash on the stomach, chest, and genitals
  • red, dry, cracked lips
  • swollen tongue with a white coating and big red bumps
  • sore, irritated throat
  • swollen palms of the hands and soles of the feet with a purple-red color
  • swollen lymph nodes
Mom and Dad were so scared and became paranoid whenever me and my brother is having a high fever but In God's goodness, we were fine. Hope not to have kawasaki again in the future.

That's all for now! Good day!

Hugs an kisses,
