Arrow small update on my little brother

he saw the cardiologist and the Dr basically said that his heart was great. Giant, and very good. But the problem is that it's too big for his body.
ie: the bird is too big for the cage

but he did recommend that he get an echocardiogram to make sure that there were no other issues since he has had a history of fluid in the sac around his heart already.

I'm hoping he just learns that he can't super-overdo things and has no further problems.

Thats kind of interesting, actually. I didn't know a person could have a heart that is too big, unless it was enlarged due to disease.

I hope it turns out to be something he can easily adjust for.

I've been checking in every day for an update. Did the doctor say what to do if the echocardiogram comes back fine other than don't over do it?
