ECHO scheduled - Lauren
Thanks agian everyone for you kind words last night. I am really trying not to be worried about this, but it is in the back of my mind now. Thank God they can get us in for the ECHO on MONDAY at 1pm. Orginally, they told me I would have to wait 2 weeks, but then I offered to go to a different facility and that openned up my options a little more.

I posted this on the other post too, but Thank you guys for sharing how COMMON a heart murmur can be. I had no idea that so many people are walking around with them!

Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
So glad you were able to get in quickly. Hopefully it will be nothing major. I'll keep her (and her scared mommy) in my prayers.

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
Hey there. I missed your original post. I had a heart murmur diagnosed as a baby. Turned out to be a bicuspid valve. It has caused absolutely no issues in my life other than thaking antibiotics for dentist appts.

Good luck at the appt.

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/jedd
95% of heart murmurs are "innocent" just to let you know.

Another piece you might find interesting. Did trhey hear the murmur on the front and the back. UF so that ups the chances of it being innocent.

Jedd's in the rareity that his was heard in the front and back and his was NOT innocent. It's just that his hole was soo big you could hear it all over his chest by that point.

I pray it all goes well!!!!! HUGS
