Delays and more Delays... Which is good!

My name is Marriah, and I'm four months old. I see the doctors less frequently, and every time I do, they decide to wait longer and longer for my next appointment.

Every appointment I go to, in Seattle, the Doctors are very pleased with how my health is doing. I'm consistently putting on weight, and becomming more interested in the world around me. This all means that my body and brain are getting plenty of nutrients and oxygen.

Each visit the Doctor reassesses my heart condition to determine when the next procedure or surgery should occur. And each time, I see them, I'm doing well enough where they push any procedures off until later. The longer they can delay any interventions, the better my long-term health will be, which means fewer invasive procedures.
