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)
