This last Thursday, Bennett had his annual Children's checkup to make sure his recovery from Kawasaki Disease continues to be smooth sailing, and he passed his tests like a champ. He even received the all clear to now have checkups every two years. Since he had no initial coronary artery damage from his illness, it's reassuring to hear that the likelihood of any issues arising is very low. The ongoing checkups are just to ensure all continues to be good and as the doc explained to us this visit, KD was first diagnosed in the late 60's, so it's not entirely known how kids with KD age and how it will affect their heart as they get older.
This kid of seriously such a trooper when it comes to going to the doctor. He's so brave and tolerant of everything he's put though. Love him.
