What we found out...

Well, Dr. Harper did a TEE, which means he basically did an internal sonogram. Haley swallowed a tube with a camera and the doctor was able to get a really good look. He definitely saw a thickening at the top of the septum... egg-shaped. There was also a thickening on the top left wall of the atruim (I stink at medical terms... bear with me). Dr. Harper is going to show 3-4 other doctors on Monday and Tuesday and will give further thoughts. For now, he isn't convinced it's a tumor and it could be fatty tissue and/or a lypoma of some sort. Nothing concrete yet, but he ruled out many things it could've been and seems to have almost ruled out a tumor.... wow. We didn't expect that one to be ruled out (technically, it's not ruled out... just more unlikely at this point). There is a good chance that Haley will not need the surgery anytime soon, and maybe ever.

Haley is tuckered out. Isn't she pretty.
