As instructed, mommy and daddy took me to the cardiologist to look for any signs of endocarditis or infection. I had my scan done and then saw the cardiologist. He said everything on the scan looked good (or the same as April - hole still there, mis-shaped valve still there) - no sign of infection/inflammation. He did a thorough exam on me - even washed my feet to look for signs (spots) of endocarditis. He couldn't find anything. He said while the thumb nails are a sign of endocarditis, I should have other symptoms. He couldn't explain the nails, but said I appeared to be fine (we are still waiting on the blood culture). He said to keep a close eye on me. And he'd see me in a year, as originally planned.
