They say now that about 1/4 of the babies born have this problem or about 29%. Today they repair those that need to be repaired. I was born in an era where I might have been attended to by a midwife and my family never took me to a doctor. However, no doctor has noticed anything was wrong with me until I started having heart rhythm problems about 3 or 4 years ago. The doctor sent me to get a sonogram of my heart where the tumor was found. The tumor was new development and they did not found the hole in my heart at that time. I was sent to a heart specialist and he did not find the hole in my heart. I then chose a doctor to go to and he sent me to Emory in Atlanta where they found the hole in my heart. I take medicine for the heart rhythm problem which makes me so tired but at least I feel a little better.

.
my damaged heart this imperfect heart Beats, beats, beats, beats my weak heart still beats this beating arrhythmic heart this heart heart heart heart defective heart beat heart defective heart heart heart damaged heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart diseased heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart with a hole and a tumor effects one's active life immensely with death knocking at one's door, fatigue, irregular heartbeat, stress of death impending but life goes on and one adjusts living a full a life as possible under the circumstances God is good, uplifting, encouraging me in each day and every moment life goes on and each day is a blessing to enjoy with family moments of spiritual highs with God's presence so close reaching out and touching the hem of His garment feeling life giving healing taking place nothing can compare to this God is so good He is so Good to Me

A very inspiring poem, Sara. I love the way you repeat "heart heart heart," which to me represents the continuous beating of your heart. Then you transport us from focusing on the physical to the true source of light and life. ~Mark

Wow, I used to work with someone who had a hole in her heart; it does make things difficult. You've penned the feelings well in this lovely shape poem. Blessings to you in the coming years.

M. L., Yes, anything that is wrong with the human body gets worse as one gets older. I have never known anyone alive with the problem that had not been repaired. My mother kept a little boy who had the problem but he had surgery. I knew a family whose daughter had the problem and the doctors told them she would die without the surgery but she died in a car wreck. Sara

Wow, how skillfully you conveyed your message both through your words and the shape. It is difficult to let go of health worries when it is your heart that affected. I'm glad you are doing well now and wish you success in the contest with this powerful poem! Hugs, Carolyn

Carolyn, Thanks for dropping by. This was not written for the contest. I was just experimenting to see how this would work. Did not work out like I thought it would. I will try again and see if I can get it to work properly. Sara

Nette, Thanks for the visit to my page. I appreciate the time spent here. Trying to get this to work did not work out so very well. I am going to try to do it on my word processor and see how that does then maybe I can copy and paste and see how it does. Sara
