An Innocent Heart Murmur
DH took Kaelin to the doctor last Friday for her 1-year shots. While she was there, the doctor noticed a heart murmur. At first at the mention of the word "heart" I panicked, but only for about 3 seconds. I quickly learned that heart murmurs are very common in children under the age of 15 and do not pose any threat unless they get louder. Our doctor explained it as the heart making an extra noise while it pumped. He said it could disappear tomorrow, or years down the road.
