Before discovery of Heart Problem

 

Amelia was born on the Tuesday of 06 December 2005 at 1713. She weight 3.6 kilograms. She was kept in the hospital together with mummy for a day.

Mummy noticed that her heart beat was a bit loud but not aware of anything was wrong with her. Amelia was crying for milk at 1 – 3 hour interval every night. Each feed she only took about 1 – 2 ozs of formula milk. There were times where she had 6 ozs of milk at one feed.

She showed no sign of blue spells or had any difficulty in breathing at all except she was a bit sweaty after each feed.

Tetralogy of Fallot & Amelia

Amelia Lee’s congenital heart problem was discovered by the doctor (GP) that carried out full check up on her when she was 6 weeks old. The doctor said Amelia has a loud systolic heart murmur.

Amelia was then being referred to a nearby local Hospital department of pediatrics for further examination. The pediatrician at the local hospital confirmed that Amelia has a grade 5 systolic murmur called Tetralogy of Fallot. Grade 5 in murmur gradations referenced to very loud, with thrill. May be heard when stethoscope is partly off the chest during the heart contraction.

Amelia was being issued with the local hospital emergency card and at the same time specialist heart examination was being arranged with Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) for Children in central London, UK.

Amelia's Weight

The Cardiologists at GOSH explained Amelia’s heart condition and they would like Amelia gains as much weight as possible before her heart surgery.

Amelia's weight gain progress was very slow and at average of 1-2 ozs per week.
