  • Good news about my oldest daughter (age 5)

    She went in for her 5-year-old checkup with her pediatrician and the doc listened to her for a LONG time. She then told my wife that she sounded good but also wanted to do her first echo so we could all feel good about where she was (at least at this point). She had the echo last week and the results are all normal. Now, I didn't get symptoms until my late 20's but this is SUCH good news and a blessing for me and my family. I just had to share!

    My next annual is in July and I'll have my usual echo at that time. Looking forward to it.

    Take care everyone!!
