2 year old with enlarged heart

My baby girl is 2 almost 3 and i just found out that her eKG showed a enlargment in her heart. Her doctor is referring her to a cardiologist but im really worrried. What is the seriousness in this condition and can we do anything to help her? She colapses onto the floor for no reason but then just get back up like nothing ever happened.

I'm sorry you're facing such a frightening ordeal right now. I honestly don't have any suggestions because you don't know yet what's causing the enlargement or how severe it is. Sometimes as adults the enlargement can be reversed to some degree with medications. I'm not sure with little children.

Did you know there's a pediatric cardiology forum here? I'll add the link but if it doesn't work, just click on "Forums" at the top of the page and scroll down till you find Pediatric Cardiology along the left side. I was just there and someone else posted a message about their 3 year old son having an enlarged heart. Parents there will share their experience and knowledge.

Take care.      www.medhelp.org/forums/Pediatric-Cardiology/show/302
