Comment: April's trip / Hershey Medical Center

Today April (and we) went to a cardiologist near Hershey, PA.  It was a difficult trip - the drive, and the news.  Not unexpected, but still difficult.  The people there were amazing, however.  It was a good place to be, and the people were so kind and considerate.  Our April did very well and was very grown up about it all.  April has Downs Syndrome and a serious heart problem. 


Our April is grown; born in 1971.  Her heart is inoperable, so that is the hard bit.  But she is such a cheerful girl and tries so hard to make it easier for others.

For instance, when her pet canary died, she kept it secret so she wouldn't upset the family.  I have talked to her about telling me when things are wrong. I think (and hope) she understands how important that is since we realize how grave her present condition. 

Thanks for your comment. I am delighted to hear from you. :o)

I'm sorry to read about April's heart problem. I'm glad to hear she is in good hands. I have a number of friends who have children with Down's Syndrome. Two of the children had open heart surgery as babies. 9 plus years later and they are both doing really well.
