Gavin's Story

Gavin was born a healthy child, or so we thought.  There were no problems with his delivery, no problems after birth.  He slept the majority of the time.  Things were great!!  I thought I had the perfect baby. At his five week check up, his pediatrician thought he detected a mild heart murmur.  Although I was nervous, the pediatrician calmed my fears by assuring me that many kids had murmurs and most grew out of them without requiring any type of intervention.  My online research confirmed this and I allowed myself to relax.  We scheduled a visit with a pediatric cardiologist as just a precautionary measure.

When Gavin was seven weeks old my world changed.   (I will continue Gavin's story later)
