Comment from: PhdMommy, 3-6 Female (Caregiver) Published: July 24

When she was 18 months old, our daughter had circulation issues with her lips and hands turning blue. When we had this examined further, the ER found nothing. However, as it continued to occur, we followed up with a cardiologist who within five minutes looked at the hospital's EKG and saw the WPW indicators. Since she is still so young, we have an event monitor with her at all times to make a quick recording if she appears to be in pain, short of breath, etc.

I was diagnosed with WPW. I had an ablation and have not looked back. I have never felt better. I was 55 at the time.
