About Me: Female, 53, Carrollton, GA, member since May 2009
I have two wonderful kids. Ages 14(son) and 5(daughter). My son was just diagnosed with Epstein's Anomaly in February. We have had 2 episodes since the diagnosis and has been cardioverted twice. I have been a nurse for 25 years and thought I had seen it all but have nev
[More]er been a scared as when I saw my son's echo and his first chest xray that showed his cardiac enlargement and they came in and told us his diagnosis.
I want to know all I can about this anomaly and how I can help my son cope with being a teenager with a heart defect.
My daughter is a joy and spoiled terribly by her older brother. I am so blessed to have such loving , wonderful kids.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi Beth, my owncomputer sort of crashed this week so I'm on a friends'. I can't really reply as of yet.....I just wanted you to know.
I'll try and write again when my computer is fixed.
