Turns out the murmur is benign and nothing to worry about, but the ultrasound showed something unexpected, that has nothing to do with the heart murmur. She has a PFO.
While a baby grows in the womb, there is a normal opening between the left and right atria (upper chambers) of the heart.
This is where the baby gets blood supply from the placenta.
If this opening fails to close naturally soon after the baby is born, the hole is called patent foramen ovale (PFO).
Come to think of it, neither can her father. The school nurse sent home a note with Logan when he was in 2nd grade stating that he is color blind, and he would not be able to control air traffic, or go scuba diving. So Téa and her Daddy can sit out the scuba diving together.
I'm including this picture so Téa will have it when she grows older.
Has anyone heard of a PFO before?
