Hershey Heart of the Month

Each one of our children is special to us and their family. Take a moment and meet our children and get to know them. This month’s Heart of The Month Is Michael.

Michael was born in July of 2000. During his one week check-up with my midwife, she detected a loud heart murmur and recommended that we see a pediatrician right away. (We could hear the loud swishing just holding our ears to his chest!) Our pediatrician confirmed the heart murmur and recommended that we see a cardiologist at Hershey Medical Center as soon as possible. I remember making the phone call to Hershey; the receptionist told me that it would take several months to get in…then she double checked with the cardiologist and said we could be seen in a few days. I think at this point I started to realize that something serious could be going on!
