Holter Monitor Results, Better Late Than Never

Our doctor called and left us a voice mail regarding the Holter Monitor results. The lowest heart rates were in the 40's for brief times, average hourly rates were all above 60. The highest rate was at 160.

C did not drop any beats and remained in sinus rhythm throughout the test. Overall, this is a big improvement from where we were immediately following surgery when his heart rate would linger in the 30's.

It looks like we are not facing the need for a pace maker at this time.  Hopefully C will continue to grow into his heart.
