Cold War

Does this hat make my cheeks look big?!

We are slowly recovering from our first shared illness. Not sure who started it, but we've both had a crappy cold for about 2 weeks now. A sniffling, sneezing, coughing, head cold. Not too bad but not fun either.

I took Kayla to the Doctor just to make sure her chest was clear, which it was, but the Doc thought she could hear a heart murmur. Hopefully she is wrong, or it is just a temporary effect of the cold. I'm trying to be calm, I'm sure its nothing, but 3 weeks sure seems like a long wait for our appointment with the Pediatrician.

What a thing to leave you with! I'll be thinking of you. Three weeks is a long time, and I pray it is most likely nothing.

We had an overzealous doctor tell us he heard a murmur on Shawn once, which of course freaked me out. All was okay, though, when it was rechecked.

Don't panic. Sometimes these murmurs turn out to not be murmurs at all.

If you want to be completely sure, request a pediatric echocardiogram. They are painless and very reassuring :)
