    Hi Diane,

    My son hasn't been diagnosed as of yet. We haven't been told to stop sports by our physician. I wasn't sure if you thought that he was playing sports against medical advice.

    I understand that it only takes a second, a heart beat, for something to happen. You mentioned being scared silly...for years i've had my heart in my throat as I've watched my children play sports. When and if we get the word, he will no longer play ball, but i'm hoping & praying that it won't be at this follow up and that he can enjoy a year in varsity ball...you can always hope...right?

    It's great that you have your son plugged in with counseling and I agree with you about having someone their own age to talk to.

    Take care
