How did it move to the heart if it didn't get inside the heart chamber? It sounds as if it slightly penetrated the heart wall, but that contradicts the statement that it moved.

I don't understand this either. But I don't understand a lot!

It's on the outside of the heart --- you have the heart itself, which is a muscle, then you have 4 chambers which are insdie of that muscle.

But you also have a membrane covering the heart -- my husband is thinking that a pellet lodged into that membrane and caused the inflamatory reaction -- foreign object in membrane.

He can't be certain, because all I am asking him to do is translate and interrupt what we're all hearing.

Here's what I picked up, fwiw. The exact location of the shot cannot be determined with available technology because it is metal and gives off a star or halo effect in the pics. The doctor's best guess is that it is touching the heart muscle or has penetrated it slightly. This caused inflamation which resulted in the event.
