    Just to let everyone know that my daughter had her echo on Wednesday and I saw a copy of the report today - All is normal! Of course she'll continue to get echos evey few years, but for now all is good and for that we are very thankful.

    I also want to say thanks for all the helpful suggestions. She handled the whole thing really well and thought she was extra special to be able to have pictures taken of her heart.

    Hi Amy,

    I know how you feel. My 14 year old was tested last October and was told all looks good..come back in 3 years.

    My 9 year old son goes for his echo in 2 weeks. I pray he is OK. He has visions of playing in the major league someday!! I do worry because 3 years ago at his first appt the Dr said he did have a slight murmur and a flipped T wave. He continued to say that you tend to see flipped waves in people with HCM, but it does not mean he has it?? Go figure. Anyway hopefully all will be well in 2 weeks. It is just so hard sometimes with children. I don't worry about me or my ICD..I worry about them. But then again I am a MOM!!

    Julie -

    1. You should not wait 3 years for a recheck 12-18 months is what is recommended.

    2. Yes Inverted T waves and a murmur are typical in HCM...

    Be careful

    Best wishes,

    Are you in Canada? My aunt is a canadian resident and they only see her every 3 years (which makes me nuts!!) so I'm wondering if this is a Canadian thing, this 3 years.
