I felt very blessed to deliver a beautiful baby girl almost 2 yrs after having my son. On day 2 I was ready to go home and was waiting for the peadiactic team to do the newborn check. The dr said her heart had a murmur and it didn’t sound good, gave her a chest X-ray and booked us in to the cardiologist for day 7. I was an emotional wreck not want to let her cry, get worked up! After 5 horrible days we went to the cardiologist. He explained she had three holes in her heart and would need medication to slow her breathing and reduce the pressure on her heart.
Check up 8 wks later, pressure still not good, remain on the medication. Checkup in 8 weeks pressure is now above 70 no more medication!!! for the first time in 5 mths did she not have to have her medi!!! We don’t have to see him until she is 11/2 yrs and there is only one hole left!! Amazing little girl was mending herself.
There are a lot of bubs out there worse off and I feel for them because the worry in my heart for her almost broke me!! Xx
