    I read a few of these stories because I was trying to figure out whether he was being treated for HCM. It seems that he was aware of having HCM, but there is no further discussion of any treatment or medication or restrictions.

      I too am curious as to what his treatment course was. A lot of questions.... and I can't help but wonder whether he was being treated appropriately and had been advised correctly as to activity limitations.

        I was hoping to read the article, but the link provided is no longer working. I'm guessing this is the same child.
