#2921316 Olsen's sons heart defect

Posted by CardiacCat on 02 September 2014 - 02:06 PM

So Olsen's son has hypoplastic left heart syndrome also known as Snowman heart. I know this because I was born with the exact same thing and still have the scars to prove it. I had the surgeries at the same age at Presbyterian Hospital here in charlotte.

I'm living proof this can be overcome and I'm 6'5 with no issues. Some of the best heart doctors are in charlotte. Just wanted to weigh in and say it's very survivable.

So good to hear that the physicians at Presbyterian Hospital were able to successfully correct your congenital heart malformation.  


I do however not believe that a Snowman heart is the same as hypoplastic left heart syndrome.  The cardiac defect in Snowman heart is an abnormal connection of the pulmonary veins, which should normally transport the oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium, to the right superior caval vein, thereby eventually draining the blood into into the right atrium.  In HLHS, the left ventricle, responsible for pumping blood into the body, is severely underdeveloped.  Both situations are congenital heart defects that need surgical intervention, patients with HLHS often need heart transplants.  I am confident that Olsen's son is getting the best care available and that, as a result, he will grow up to be a healthy man, just like you.  


PS While I am not a physician, I have dedicated my scientific life to understanding and elucidating congenital heart disease.  Twenty years ago I moved from The Netherlands to the US to join one of the leading research groups in the nation at that time.

#2834397 Five cities you recommend when foreigners to visit the U.S.

Posted by CardiacCat on 28 June 2014 - 02:45 PM

If you want to see the real America that made this country what it was until about 25 years ago ( when in fact it was a great nation) then forget either coast and forget all the big cities and go to the north end of route 66 and start driving. Look route 66 up on the internet and you will understand.


The "real" America does not exist, just like the "real" Europe or "real" Africa don't exist.  Every single state in the US has something special and different to offer.  Some places I have been and particularly like....  the Florida Keys, Maine (Mount Desert Island), San Francisco, New Mexico (Taos), and Charleston (SC).  In fact, I live in Charleston and I believe it is one of the most beautiful cities in the US.  You will not get the big city experience and (at least if you stay away from some areas in North Charleston) you don't run a huge risk of ending up with a bullet in your head.  Great beaches (not that I care for them), great food (and I mean really great food), great fishing (yes, I do like that), lots and lots of history (Fort Sumter, beautiful plantations etc) and in general very friendly people.

#2712496 Steve Smith thanks Panther fans

 True...unfortunately that can't happen until 2018

Ooooops, my mistake ..... eyes were clouded when looking at the schedule.  I will give him my own standing ovation in my living room when we play them in Baltimore this year   :goodjob:  :goodjob:  :goodjob:   

#2711862 Steve Smith thanks Panther fans

Posted by CardiacCat on 22 March 2014 - 08:20 AM

He deserves a standing ovation when he re-enters BOA as a Raven .....  we never had an opportunity to bid him properly farewell.

#2711814 Steve Smith thanks Panther fans

who would have thought that seeing a player leave a team would generate the emotions that most of us display here.  Grown man tearing up every time we see or hear something about (or from) our favorite Panther of all time.  My Sundays will not be the same in the years to come.....  

#2682897 Thanks, Steve
