Jet_Engine1 Posted March 31 Share Posted March 31 Last weekend, I was sitting and having a cup of coffee and my 14 year old came out to the living room. I asked him how he slept, and he said, "Well, I guess OK but since my hearts racing so much my chest hurts now"..... Took his pulse and it was bounding, grabbed my stetson and his rate was well over 200 bpm.... Knowing how things work after 2+ decades in the business I told my wife we were going to the ER ASAP and wound up seeing my son get Adenosine administered. Not fun. He took it all in like the Champ he is. So after stabilization and observation, we followed up with the Pediatric Cardiologist.... who is a good friend of my old Med Director. Thankfully, it's not WPW, but he has SVT from an abnormal conduction pathway in his Atria....so now we have to bring him to the Cath Lab for a damn ablation. This is a kid who is in the Spectrum, has Myers-Gunn reflex, and hyper-pronated ankles, and now he gets to deal with this.... Count your blessings and hug your kids and be glad for their health. Meanwhile, I get sideeye and snide looks from people when they ask me what sport my son plays, and I'm like, well, he's not really into sports.... Connor is the toughest guy I know. 2 15 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
