Yesterday Doug's class practiced checking vital signs on each other. When his partner checked Doug's heart, he thought Doug's heart sounded "weird." Turns out the lady helping them agreed.
An echocardiogram taken soon after at school confirmed that Doug has an arrhythmia (the printout above that Doug proudly showed me proves it). They told Doug is wasn't anything to worry about--it's a variation of normal and it shouldn't be a problem. What they didn't take into account, however, is that now I'm going to worry about that for the rest of our lives.
