Apparently, we're all born with that to allow blood to bypass our lungs (not used in the womb), and for most of us, that hole closes with time. For some it doesn't, and some blood flow to the lungs is bypassed, along with one of its functions ... filtering small blood clots.

So my only thought is make sure your docs stay on it to try to find out the cause until they've exhausted all reasonable possibilities.

It's all true ... none of us are spring chickens, and we're no getting any younger. We adapt, and hopefully, we prosper. Good luck to you!
turns out I have the hole in my heart sothe blood clot was able to score on an empty net. I didn't even know I was playing hockey.
