First of all....CONGRATULATIONS!!! My second daughters name is Kylie and she was born 8-8-03! Second....has the Dr. confirmed a heart murmur?? MOST of the TIME a person can live and entire lifetime with a heart murmur and it will never give them problems. Now, God forbid it comes to this but, both my sister and my Godson have had open heart surgery and yes it is a MAJOR surgery but they have made such advances in the field that is a VERY safe procedure. And believe me, if, God forbid, there is something wrong, you want to find out early and get it taken care of EARLY. Just pray on it...and enjoy your beautiful daughter. She will be fine!! Take care =0)

I had a heart murmur as a baby but it quickly closed after about 6 months but since then my parents have been fond of reminding me that I can t have my ears pierced or get a tattoo any time I ask about piercings so I m wondering what the real risk involved is, if any. I ve been trying to look into it but most of the people who ve asked questions seem to involve them still having the condition or having to go through an operation to get rid of it which I didn t have to as it closed naturally so I m wondering if this affects the risk involved?

Dear Doctor

My results came back from a chest Xray and the impression was borderline cardiomegaly with no acute abnormality. I am female, 69, have a history of asthma, have been a runner/walker for 25+ years, and have had a pacemaker for 1 & 1/2 years. Should I be concerned about this?
