For those of you who are familiar with my friend Brandon through the posts or the 2 quilts and several pillows we made for him a couple years ago.(He still talks about his quilts by the way)..(pictures of him and the quilts in my profile) I have some very troubling news to share with you...
He has been having some pretty significant cardiac issues for several weeks now. He called me a few weeks ago and told me he was having episodes of tachycardia ( rapid heart rate) off and on for quite a while but had recently made his mom aware of them. Well he called me the other night and told me he got very sick very quick while he was on a horse during his horse therapy session. He also told me he is now having a heart rate of over 100 during the night while he is in bed sleeping. Not good. I am very concerned for him. He is a miracle. For those of you not familiar with him he was not expected to live past 1 month old and is now 20 years old.
He had an appointment with the cardiologist at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville Tenn. today. I text him at 6 this morning to remind him to call me with what he finds out today. It is now 6:30 and I haven't heard from him.
Please pray for this young man. His whole life has been a struggle and I am just sick at what he is now having to deal with.
I will let you know when I hear from him.

Prayers going out to Brandon. Hopefully it is a simple fix with meds or even a pacemaker.

(JAYZEE! I was SO new when you put that quilt together! I hope my blocks didn't throw you too much off....)

He's a man. In other words, you're not going to get LIVE coverage.
I'm sure he's fine....
Now if you said his heart rate was 200 bpm, I'd be concerned.....

Rhonda, thanks for letting us know. I started thinking about him because someone on the forum recently mentioned him in reference to the wonky star quilt. Please share with him that we are all praying for him. Hopefully this is a fluke and he'll be right as ever soon.

So sorry to hear of Brandon's health issues . It was indeed a privilege to know him through you and to make those special quilts for him. I hope the docs can fix him up quickly with some meds and he'll be back to feeling good soon.
