Perfectly Imperfect!

DJ's heart is very different than a normal - ordinary - run-of-the-mill - heart. He has a very special heart. An ordinary heart is illustrated on the left, and DJ's special heart is on the right of the diagram below. You can read more about DJ's unique medical condition here, and here, and here.

DJ had his annual heart tests today. He was such a trooper. The ultrasound, EKG and ECG went very well. All 5 of his heart abnormalities are either growing with him - that is what we want - or even improving. This is such wonderful news. DJ is currently sporting a heart monitor halter for 24 hours - or, as he calls it, his Heart Robot.

A boy, his robot, and a perfectly imperfect heart!
