Mighty MikeyD is heading back to CHOP in the morning for some testing with Dr.Vetter. he will have his ICD implanted defibrillator checked out as well as some other testing.
They will check the leaky valve that was damaged from the SCA to see if it is healing.
Dr. Vetter will do a heart screening on MikeyD just the same as we will be doing for all the kids on April 26th at St. Mary’s/Mater Dei. I am sorry I did not get to post the link here because the response from the flyers was so successful that appointments were filled in a day and a half. CHOP told me to please stop spreading the word. They said they have never had a response to a screening like this one before. Right now we have over 300 children signed up for the screening. We are going to talk to Dr. Vetter tomorrow and ask her to please add some more so please check back and I will post the link here on the MikeyD blog site if she agrees. The MikeyD Fund will do more screenings in the future if you do not get an appointment this time you will be first in kine for the next one. Also right now due to the amount of children we have signed up we need some more help. If anyone knows a nurse, ECG tech , Echo tech , CPR trainer and anyone else who can help with registration loading and unloading the medical equipment please pass them the link to this site and ask them to post or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that will be greatly appreciated.
The more help we get the better.
We are happy that Rob and Denise Mason have joined us in our fight to save other children from SCA and save other families from the unbelievable shock, trauma and lifelong sorrow a tragedy such as SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST brings. We will save a lot of children from the heart screenings and a lot of children from the CPR and AED training. Also by working on getting laws passed that make sure every sports team has an AED at every game and practice as well as coaches certified in CPR.
We will have CPR and AED training at the screening on April 26th so please stop in. Warm weather is coming please keep all Kids Hydrated before any practice or games.
We Believe in Miracles !!!
Please keep praying and posting for MikeyD !!!
