Pericarditus update...

Barney went to see the Cardiologist today and he would like to get to the bottom of why it keeps happening and returning so quickly. So Barney had to have lots of blood tests and he goes for an ECG tomorrow afternoon. He will see the Cardiologist again in 6 weeks time.

The Cardiologist wants Barney to go and see the Auto-Immune Dr again to see if his dry mouth is an auto-immune disease, which can cause Viral Pericarditus. It can also be triggered by a cold too, but they still need to know why!

I guess once they can get to the cause they can try to cure the Pericarditus. So something else to add to our list right now! YAY

Back to DHMC tomorrow for the twins too - U/S, Maternal Fetal Medicine Appointment, Pallaitaive Care Appointment and hopefully a tour of the Birthing Facility too. I will post again with more news in the next couple of days.


  1. I'm hoping they can figure out what's going with Barney's heart so they can treat it. Hope everything goes well with all your appointments!
