Minor Procedure

Our older boy, my H2, has had episodes of SVT (rapid heart rate) for five years now. It was managed with medication for a while, then seemed to go away, but then came back last school year. Due to the unpredictability of it and the resulting disruption and anxiety it causes him (even the coolest of adults get a little rattled when a kid complains of heart issues, especially when a parent isn’t around) he is scheduled for a heart ablation catheterization procedure tomorrow early in the morning. Hopefully the doctors will be able to find and eliminate the extra electrical pathways responsible. Fortunately, we are told this is a pretty routine procedure with great success rates. But as the saying goes, no surgery or procedure is minor if it’s happening to you or a loved one.
