He's FREE!!!!

A while back, I created a page about Chase:

Chase became FREE when he was 6 months old. It was an amazing feeling knowing that my son was doing well enough with his heart condition that he could be free from medicine. The doctor said he might even have out-grown it, and possibly never deal with SVT ever again!

Today, I read about an online-friend whose son is now FREE of his SVT, and the chance of his SVT returning is now 1% ... ONE PERCENT!!!! That is phenomenal! No more medication. No more heart monitors. No more stethoscopes. No more vagal maneuvers, or trips to the ER.

Stellan is now FREE to be himself, as Chase was at 6 months old. And I cry tears of happiness with a level of understanding of just what that means for Stellan and his family. Our journey was no where near as scary as Stellan's was, but now they seem to both have the same happy ending. :)
