An ccho-cardiogram and electrocardiogram performed showed ebstein anomaly (Horner Syndrome), moderated apical interventricular communication. He doesn’t require surgical treatment based on electrocardiogram results; he requires biannual follow up with both echo-cardiogram and electrocardiogram. It is possible that as an adult he will probably require tricuspid valve replacement.  Pablo doesn’t show signs of recent or past of physical abuse.

Mental examination shows a calm and inexpressive child, staring off into space that shows indifference and only speaks when I ask her something, assures to be euthymic even though her appearance seems to be of sadness. Some level of cognition deficit, I have to repeat questions, she writes her name but unable to make her to read some words, can’t add 2+2, low tone of voice, monotone, without any inflection, her thought seems coherent, concrete, limited to isolated words and short phrases, good sleep habits, poor appetite, thin physical constitution, remembers “papa me pegaba” (my father used to hit me), there is no suicidal ideas but “ cansada de la vida” (tired of life), she isolates herself “solo tengo una amiguita” (I only have one little friend), no anxiety data.

Tomas is in urgent need of a family! He has heart disease and recently needed a pacemaker installed. He can stand a little with a walker but cannot walk. He can sit up on his own. He can only babble and cannot talk. He does smile a little bit at his caregivers. I don’t believe he is able to feed himself. He needs 100% help with all his activities. Tomas would thrive in a family setting, with access to all the medical care and therapies he really needs!
