That my little girl is all ready 5 months old. She is growing up way too fast!
She went to her check-up today and she weights 17.5 pounds, so not as big as I was thinking but still in the 90% for weight. The NP was just commenting on how healthy and beautiful she was and then started listening to her heart and kept listening and listening and I knew something must be up. Then she said I'm going to borrow her for a minute and left the room and went and had 4 other Dr.'s listen to her chest in the hall. She came back and informed me that she has a type of murmur that they have never heard before and that if she wasn't so fat, healthy and pink we would be going to the hospital because it sounds so strange. She gave me the name of a Pediatric Cardiologist that we will be seeing next week to determine if it is a normal fine murmur or a congenital heart defect and tells me to try not to worry too much. Yeah right. Needless to say I fought the urge to take her to the ER anyways because I want an answer like now, but I will be patient until we see the Cardiologist. Everything I have read on Dr. Google is not very positive stating that most murmurs heard before 6 months are not normal murmurs but I'm still hopeful.
