Lilly has a significant heart murmur.  This prompted the doctors to have a look at her heart, and they found out that her pulmonary artery and the arteries leading to her lungs are narrower than they should be.  Actually, one has gotten a bit worse since her check one month ago (we were at the hospital today for another ultrasound).  What does this mean?  Well, she could simpy grow out of this (her mommy had a heart murmur when she was a baby). Or, since she has certain features that suggest this (along with the narrow passageways internally), she may have Williams Syndrome.  Also, things could keep getting narrower, and, well, that would result in surgery. 

Lilly will be going for a chromosome test soon to check for Williams Syndrome.  We’ll keep you updated.
