I didn't see a board for mommies with heart conditions so I was wondering if maybe any of you have one. My docs are starting to lean toward a heart condition that will gradually cause cardiomyopathy which they think may already be present...I have an Echo on Monday but unless it is urgent I won't get the results for 6 weeks!!! There is nothing like adding stress to a stressed out heart. The worst part is that it is a dominant genetic disorder...the good news is even if you have the gene it manifests in different severities in different people. If Danny has it he shouldn't have any symptoms until he is a teenager. I am also getting an Event monitor mailed to me sometime this coming week to track the breakthrough arrhythmias that I am having so frequently even with the highest dose of the current meds they can put me on.

Anyway...long intro but do any of you have a heart condition also?

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.

I have no known heart conditions. However, on my mother's side of the family it feels like everyone has something and of course my daughter does. Her's is likely a random genetic deal though.

I had a Bicuspid Aortic Valve. I had an Aortic Valve Replacement in 2010.

Thank you *Kiliki* for once again doing such amazing work on a siggie
