It feels good to be around people who “get you,” have similar experiences, and connect on a unique level. Parent Heart Watch 2014 was the perfect place for young cardiac “survivors” to hit it off! A few tears and a lot of laughs were shared as we compared scars and stories. I think it was great for TJ, the youngest survivor in the bunch, and his parents to see that the rest of us are “normal” people doing “normal” things and living fun-filled lives – funny heart and all!
We were all excited to get Connected by Hearts up and running, I think we more most excited about an “ask the doc” column as Jimmy rattled off some of common questions he texts his doc. We’re also looking forward to having an online chat going soon so we can stay connected throughout the year!
Whether getting our groove on listening to Kevin’s friend’s band or sitting around chatting I think it’s fair to say, we all had a lot of fun!! I’m looking forward to some fun in the sun next year at Parent Heart Watch 2015 in Arizona!
