Quoting THEIR QUEEN =):“ Has anyone of you ladies been told that your child has a mild heart murmur? I just got out of my sons ... [snip!] ... worried. If any of you mommas out there have been told the same can you plz tell me what happened or is happening? TIA Reyna”
When Marcus was born he had a very loud and noticable murmur. They checked it out and found a whole bunch of stuff wrong, did a fish test to his chromosomes and found he has VCFS its a genetic disorder.
His heart problem entail:
-Hole in Heart (causing the murmur) - most babies close up on their own
- Severe Pulmonary Stenosis with DORV
- Brain Damage to 20% Lower left brain (due to throwing a clot and stroking during a surgery)
He has had 2 surgeries just catheters through his hip. One at 2 weeks and another just here in August. They were to put a stent into his valve to open it up.
He is having open heart surgery before christmas to close the hole and create an artificial valve to lead the valve back to where it is supposed to be and channel it through the hole and close the hole around it. Going to be an all day proceedure.
Marcus's Murmur was extremely loud and still is. It sounds pretty cool when I listen to it through a thesiscope (cant spell) .. but its scary as hell.
You baby just has a mild murmur and he is still only small and growing. Murmurs are usually caused by there being a hole in the muscle of their hearts. And most cases close up on their own.
Be strong momma, hope everything turns out ok.
