So, we took her into the pediatrician yesterday to make sure she was okay. We were worried she was having issues with a leaking valve, or heart failure.
She had an X-ray and blood work completed to see if they could find something abnormal. They found that Reiss had elevated BNP levels (a measure of heart failure) in her blood tests last night. To compare – the last time her test was “elevated” was in Dec 2015 and the number was 350. Yesterday, it was 7000.
