I am at a point in my life where, while I am not entirely comfortable wearing my pajamas out to run errands, I am certainly not above it.

Due to the fact that there's some leakage from the valves
A murmur is an abnormal heart sound. So by definition, most people do not have a murmur. A murmur may or may not be a sign of valvular incompetence. Many murmurs are benign.

Valve opening during CPR has nothing to do with murmurs or leaky valves or EF. Heart valves open passively: when enough pressure is generated in the chamber to push them open, they open. When the pressure in the chamber falls below the pressure on the other side of the valve, they close again. Normally this pressure is generated by contraction of the heart muscle, but in CPR it is generated by literally squeezing the heart with compressions and forcing the blood out the valves.

There's a lot more to heart valve function and hemodynamics than that, but that's the basic gist of what causes heart valves to open.

I think this would be better stated as everyone has some level of cardiac valve regurgitation. A murmur may or may not be auscultated.

Wish these conversations were in the appropriate forum...lots of learning is buried in bows, late for work stories and crappy partner stories....
Agreed. Medical discussions should be in their own thread in the appropriate sub-forum.

I'm getting old enough I'm just happy I remembered to get dressed before stepping outside. 👴

It was. Im really happy what the Braves did with only 3 starting pitches. Hopefully the Dodgers get over that hump now.
I fully anticipate it will be quite the rivalry once things return to normal, i.e., a full length season.

Tampa Bay’s pitching also seems...impressive.

Ugh. Sports talk. Reminds me when I gave a sticker of a fake hockey team to my boyfriend of the city we're in and he thought it was real. I never told him it was, thought he knew we didn't have any such team. Our official sport is Rodeo.

He thought for months we might eventually go to a game. It was heartbreaking to see the light and fire die out in his sad yankee eyes when he learned it was not true.

He's still not over it.

I'm sorry 😭

You have shattered his hopes and dreams.

Today I ate my last mcdonald's for the foreseeable future. Starting a very strict meal and exercise plan with my wife. Least I know what and how much of everything I get to eat... Every single day for the next two weeks... Till I get a new plan from the trainer which will be the same for two weeks. We have already decided sushi will be our cheat meal once a week.

He's a... red something fan . Red wings. And chicken wings.

Maybe if we don't get mugged, we'll see a game when we visit his home for Christmas.

Detroit... eh. Snow? Piqued my interest. Time with my boyfriend in a city foreign to me? Priceless. Plus he's also obsessed with a store called Meijers and a "Coney Dog".

We shall see.

Ready the marshmallows and hot chocolate. There's good times to be had in the delectable aroma of a nice hardwood fire. Ugh, I love the smell of cordite.

He's actually COMFORTABLE in like 60°F. Like that should be a crime. I'm suffering and shivering with hothands in my pockets and socks to the point I burn myself. Layers don't mean crap when you're under 100 lbs.
