Tristan's Cardiology Visit

Tristan's mom here. Tristan had his cardiology appointment last Wed. Not very good news so I had put off writing. Just not up to it. But I did want to let you know. It is good that his side effects from the HOCM are under control- BP, heart rate, left atrium is normal size but at the high end of normal & murmur better also. But (and that is a hated word) his heart wall continues to get thicker. It was thicker the last visit (6 months ago) and now is thicker yet. That is the thing we can't do
anything about. And also the thing that will take him from this world.
I am just so sad. I had hoped that maybe he would be stable this visit
but it seems the disease is progressing.
