News that I rather have NOT have gotten

Hubby took our youngest to the doctor today for her checkup. She's fifteen months now.

Em is growing perfectly in height, weight, head. Everything seem normal to Chris until the doctor kept listening to her chest. The doctor detected a heart murmur. He told Chris that he wanted a pediatric cardiologist to check her out.

When Chris told me, I kinda flipped. Why? Because working in the medical field, there are questions I would have asked and all Chris could tell me was "I don't know, he didn't say." Talk about peeved. I was upset at Chris, upset at the doctor, upset at work. This is the time I wish I didn't have to work. I should have been there! All the nurse would tell me when I called was, "we're referring her to Dr so and so".

So that's been my great day. Please keep her in you prayers!


  1. Wow...that is not news you want to hear. I will pray.

  2. Hi Sandy
    Perhaps it will be what is known as a "functional" murmur. I had one as a small child and as I grew it went away. One of my children had one too, and again it went away as they grew. I'm praying for you and for Em tonight!

  3. Hi, Sandy. My youngest daughter has a heart murmur too. It hasn't caused any problems for her- not even when she gave birth to 3 children. Still, it is upsetting news to hear! I will be praying for you all too and will look for an update. Blessings, Glenys

  4. Sorry to hear this sweetie. Why didn't you call? Jeremy had one as well, and it never amounted to anything. Praying for you and Chris.

    Love ya!

  5. Thanks girls! I need the support. It was just a shock at first. I think I was most upset that I was working and feeling out of the loop.

    Feeling like I should have been there for any kind of news. But this was just supposed to be a quick check up and a couple shots, that is now ending up at the cardiologist.

  6. Sorry Jen, I'm bad and should have called but we were in get the Christmas lights mode and then the hockey game and nooooo way was I calling then, lol.

    I'll be home all day, give me a call when you have time.
