Helloooooooooooo lovely ladies. We have had a scary few days but am hoping that some of you will be able to share similar experiences and hopefully offer some reassurance. We ended up in the hospital on Sunday as Toby had been sick, was very hot and had been really screaming for about 2 hours. We were worried he had a bug of some sort. They kept me n him in overnight to keep an eye on him and he had loads of checks but was fine in the end. HOWEVER, one of the doctors discovered that he has a heart murmur eeeeeeeeeeps. So he ended up having even more checks and tests and x rays, ecg's you name it. He looks great and apart from a murmur there doesnt appear to be any major problems. Heart murmurs are actually quite common in my family my mum, gran and at least 2 of my grans sisters have them. But DH had a sister who died from heart complications (40 years ago or so and she had them from birth alot more serious than a murmur) sooooooooooooooo the Doc decided that with our family histories that she wanted to refer us to a consultant in London just to be on the safe side. Really scary and I cried lots and lots just cos I didn't know what to make of it, and I still don't really. Toby is such a big bonnie healthy and alert baby so we really are really really hoping that its just going to be an *innocent* murmur and nothing serious. The doc emailed all his results etc to the consultant already and he wasn't unduly worried but agreed its better to be safe to double check and make sure he is all ok. So until we see the consultant we cant be 100% sure. On the bright side they were really positive about it all and let us home on Monday evening. We had a call today and have an appointment this Friday at the Eviline Childrens Hospital in Waterloo London. So we dont have too long to wait till we hopefully have peace of mind. Has anyone also had a little one with this at all?
