        Amy and others,
        An Anesthesiologist friend has contacted me and displayed an interest in doing a little research into HCM and anesthisia useage.
        He is getting me the details of what he need to do this work but it appears that he will be looking for any of us with HCM who have had any surgury to consent to have him review the records of the procedures and report on the findings. As of now the only study like this includes under 20 people. I figured by the amount of times we have discussed this on the board we could pull together about 50 procedures easy for him to look at.
        I will post when I know more.
        Amy, How did you do during your delivery? How long were you in the hospital?
        Hey...send me a picture of the baby!!

          Amanda,

          Congratulations!! I hope your little guy gets to go home soon. He was pretty big for being a month early, huh? Good for him.
