Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We will be using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. For those who are new to the story, Victoria has Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy. This condition causes her center heart wall to thicken abnormally. This thickening causes her heart to overwork with physical activity, stress, loud drum beats, and anything else that startles her. To control this thickening and pain she has been on medication for over a year. The medication is no longer enough. The doctor has indicated that a Septal Myectomy will help. This is surgical thinning of the heart wall, with open heart surgery. Surgery is scheduled for Friday, November 30, 2018. Our hope is that this will help Victoria return to regular physical activity. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
