Heart Checkup 11/9/16

Robbie went to his heart doctor this week for his yearly checkup. He has Marfan Syndrome, so his doctor checks his aorta each year and measures the size of his aorta root and heart function. The good news is that his aorta stayed the same size. The bad news is that the strong chemo drugs did cause some heart damage. The ejection fraction has gone from high normal to low normal. 

In the big picture we realize that the side effects from chemo are better than cancer, but still Robbie and I were disappointed to hear this.
