In brief: Likely a VSD
One of the more common heart defects is a hole between the lower chambers called a ventricular septal defect.
Estimates of up to 70% may close within the first year by changes within the heart requiring no external help. Some vsd's are major & cause big problems. It is likely you just had a little one.
