The Things You Discover
Today Jimmy called to have me get him from school because he wasn't feeling well. I wasn't surprised he called. He wasn't feeling well last night and only seemed to want to go to school because medicine was working so he felt okay and I told him he couldn't touch Dylan since he was sick. I got to the school to get him about the time morning kindergarten classes were letting out. On my way out of the school after checking Jimmy out, I stopped to talk briefly with his and Emma's kindergarten teacher. We got talking about Dylan and his congenital heart defect. She mentioned that she had a congenital heart defect. I asked what she had and she said she had a coarctation of the aorta. I told her Dylan had that along with his truncus. She said they didn't find hers until she was 16. She was a runner and had no idea she had a problem until they took her blood pressure and it was quite high. I thought it was very interesting to learn that she had one of the same things as Dylan.
