I have 2 kids one has a major heart defect and has aspergers syndrome. My other was born 100% healthy.What are my odds of having another healthy baby?

It Depends: There may be more factors to consider before arriving at reasonably predictable odds. I suggest, you seek out a medical geneticist for your best answer. There are dna tests needed along with a precise history from both sides of the family; then the odds can be calculated. It would, in my opinion, be unethical to give you the answer you want without having much more data. Good luck. ...Read more

Heart rate of 140 in a 4 year old with fever dangerous?   Otherwise healthy child.  Beat is regular just rapid.  Thank you

Not unexpected: The range of the awake heart rate of a 4yo is 60-140. The addition of fever generally increases the rate by 10 beats/degree/min. The respiratory rate also increases by ~5 breaths/min/degree. A kids heart is much more tolerant of rapid rates than adult & with some illnesses we will see it in the 180+ range for a couple days. ...Read more
