Flip Flopped

Renal scan was today. Gracie did well. She cried most of the time but she was still. She has discovered Yo Gabba Gabba so we did a lot of singing of the Yo Gabba Gabba theme in the waiting room which I think helped. So, the tech kept asking me things about transposition and I told her that she didn't have transposition in her heart. She just kind of shook her head and I got the feeling that something weird was up and of course that made me worry a bit. I decided though that I wasn't going to stress and if there was something wrong, Dr. Oliver would call. So, this afternoon, who do I get a call from? Yep, the great Dr. Oliver (I mean this truly...she is the BEST pediatrician ever). She was calling to check on how Grace was doing. I told her better but I felt that the cedar was not helping her. I told her that we got the scan done today and she says that they already faxed the results to her and her kidneys look great and that they found something interesting. Ok...first thought is interesting is a neutral word...is she going to drop a bombshell on me? She does but it's nothing horrible. It turns out that Grace's liver and spleen are flip-flopped, meaning they are on the opposite sides of where they should be. But they are healthy and this happens sometimes with heart kiddos, especially with the severe heart issue she has. It is good to know about this on so many different levels! She was surprised the hospital hadn't told her. Guess they were more interested in her circulatory system. So, all is good in our world.
