    Re: First I am a mom

    Lisa,

    Here are my prayers for you and Becca. A lot to face in such a young life. You know that we are all here for you both, and your whole family.

    So many trials, yet you give so much to the world.

      Dear Lisa,
      I just got home from LA late this evening, but I couldn’t go to bed without wishing you and Becca the best outcome possible. May G-d treat you both as you treat us. A little quid-pro-quo would certainly not be amiss.

      For Becca’s sake, I will do charity.

        Lisa, I am sending all the best thoughts and wish for you, Becca and the family. I hope she will test clear and this was just a strange thing. But, She has a great mom that has been through this and is a great person to talk to.

        I am sorry that you have to now be the mom of an hcmer, I have not had to cross that bridge. I hope that I don't. I hope that for all of us that are in the same spot with our kids.

        Have a good day and remember to give Becca a hug from all of us on the board.

              Lisa, you have helped us all with your wisdom and kind words. It is now our turn to comfort you. As the others have said, I hope Becca has a very mild case. It is much easier to deal with this disease when it's you and not your kids. I would give anything for my children not to have this. When we were at the Mayo with Brandon and had his defibrillator implanted, we had Tyler age 8 checked also. They informed me that even though he was still negative, his heart was not relaxing like it should and that it would most likely to develop into HCM. I was heartbroken. Anyway know that you are in my thoughts and prayers always. Please keep us informed. Thanks

                Lisa,

                I am so sorry to hear about the possibility of your dd having HCM. However, she could not ask for a more knowledgeable mother than you when it comes to this disease, Lisa. She is in good hands. Our thoughts are with you and yours at this time.
