  • My son was born with a small VSD, and he saw a pediatric cardiologist for the first year but it closed on it's own.

  • They don't know for sure yet. He's lips getting turning blue and they can't figure out why. I've just been dealing with it the past coupe weeks. So nothing has been said. He's had a EKG done and it's clear (good thing) now he needs a electrocardiogram ( ultrasound of the heart) to see things better.

  • Does he have any other symptoms besides lips turning blue...like dizziness or lightheadedness?

  • No, and I can't imagine how scary it must be for you. Hoping everything goes well for you and baby.
