    Our3boys- My DD has a Tetralogy of Fallot too. So far she has no symptoms, which is good but I'm so scared about the upcoming surgery. Good to hear that your little man is doing so well

    CateD- What did your doctor say about the breathing episode?

    Hi Ladies,

    We had out Pead appointment yesterday and the murmur is still there. The doc isn't too concerned about it though as DS is thriving and he says it "sounds" innocent. We will be going back to see him in three months for a re-check and he said if it is still there then, we will go for an echo. We did get to the bottom of DS's funny breathing though. He has a mild version of the condition called Laryngomalacia, which means the cartalige which forms his laryx is not fully mature and is "floppy" and can obstruct the airway, caused stridor, coughing etc. Once again, as DS's is thriving the pead isn't very concerned, said we have to watch how we position him and if his breathing gets bad, to place him on his stomach. Apparently it should clear up by the time he is one.
    Thanks for sharing all your stories, I hope everything goes well for you and your LO's. I will update if things change between now and his appointment in three months.
