Riley’s visit to CHOP went well. He will see Dr Mancilla (Endocrine) again in 6 months. Prior to that appt he will have another DEXA scan to check his bone density. Endocrine is extremely happy with the results of Riley’s previous Zometa infusions but with Riley still growing any new bone growth will not have been treated. So for now he will skip another infusion and see how the scan looks in 6 months. Thankfully no new fractures have been noted from CT and they’ll check the spine again when Riley has his next orthopedics appt and xray for his scoliosis.
Riley also had ‘research’ labs done as part of the Covid vaccine study he’s participating in along with additional labs that Endocrine ordered.
Flex xrays of Riley’s neck were ordered by Dr Drant (cardiologist seen for Loeys-Dietz). Pretty sure this was to get a baseline but if there is anything of concern Dr Drant will be in touch.
Riley’s next appt is in July to see Heart transplant. Then soon after that Riley will be off to Heart camp!!
