  • Daughters took first trip to Cardiologist

    Hi Everyone!!! My twin daughters that are 9 now went to the cardiologist for the first time this week. I am happy to say that right now they are not showing any signs of the disease YAY. They will not be need to be seen until they are 11 unless there are symptoms. I am so relieved!!! I just wanted to share our good news with you all.

        Thanks Ladies for the support!! My newborn son was checked and is in the clear for now as well. We had a scare after he was born with an irregular ekg but his echo and ekgs after have all been good. Now I just have to get my 2 year old checked now that I see it can happen sooner than the teens. I dont want to take any chances with these special people that I have. Thanks again for your support!! It is good to have a place I dont have to explain OVER AND OVER LOL
