The doctor just called and the x-ray came back normal. Whew.

So far, the blood work, EKG, pulse ox, and x-ray are all normal.

Charlie is doing better. The episode this morning was short lived (25 minutes) and his "blueness" was very slight.

This is the game plan. I am to have someone stay with me at all times. When Charlie has another episode I am to rush down to the ER an insist on being seen right away. Explaining to the reception person that I was instructed to do this by Charlie's doctor and that cause the episodes don't last very long that I need first priority. Cardiology will come down and administer an EKG and maybe an echo. This is so they can tell what is going on during... So, luckily, my mother cancelled her plans and is coming over to watch my 4 year old in case I need to go.

I'll let you know. Thanks for all the support.

Just been reading all the posts and was taken with yours-my 8 yo newphew has a pace maker. I hope Charlie is doing better and you can come to the bottom of this. Can't they give him a halter to wear for a while and then download the results and get a better idea from that. I agree about the pedi-cardiologist-he may have a better understanding what could be causing this. Good luck and im looking forward to seeing a positive outcome soon-Lisa
