Quick post about my son…

My son had a genetic test for Brugada. Results are pending and should be in within the next 2 weeks. So far his EKG is fine, which is the usual. As we all know, Brugada tends to get worse with age. Keep my son in your prayers that he doesn’t have the gene. Brugada is much more fatal in boys than girls. Not saying you won’t go into cardiac arrest if you are a girl…Im just saying statistically its always worse in men and more predominant due to ( what Ive been told) testosterone. Ill post back with results. Happy New Year!

    Alicia,
    All my best to you and yours. Your son as will be in my family’s thoughts and well wishes no matter what the outcome.
    Everything you stated regarding men and Brugada is indeed true, but in any case, hope he does not in fact have the gene. Here’s to wishing you and your wonderful children a Happy New Year!

    P.S. Let me know the results. Keep thinking good thoughts, positive energy.
