My intuition was confirmed when I saw the look on the nurse’s face as she listened to my little boy’s heartbeat.

In that moment, my life changed forever. Cohen was whisked away to the NICU and diagnosed with pulmonary valve stenosis. PVS is a heart valve disorder that involves the pulmonary valve, which acts as a doorway that lets blood into and out of your heart. Stenosis, or narrowing, occurs when the valve cannot open wide enough, causing less blood flow to the lungs.

A study sought to quantify exactly how bad it can be. Researchers found that the amount of time a person watches TV is a good marker for determining a person’s sedentary time. While someone might not remember how many hours they sat yesterday, they can probably estimate time spent watching television.
