Pediatric Cardiology Reunion

Palmetto Hearts, the South Carolina based Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) support group, will be holding their Pediatric Cardiology Reunion September 25, 2010. This event will be held at The Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry in Charleston, SC, and I will be attending!

This is not a CHD Conference, but rather a party/get together of Cardiac Kids who had their Congenital Heart Surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). Even though MUSC is based in Charleston, it is the only Congenital Heart Surgery center in the state. So Palmetto Hearts has members from across South Carolina. I’m not planning a presentation and there won’t be any informational sessions, so I’m not planning to live blog. This is just a group of friends with common experiences getting together.

I’m an MUSC “Alumni” too – after Dr. Richard Rowe left Johns Hopkins Hospital, we decided to find a Pediatric Cardiologist closer to home. But I was seen at MUSC in the early 1970’s, long before these Cardiac Kids (and perhaps their parents) were born! I’m a walking, talking history book… when I was young, the different hospital departments didn’t work together as well as they do now. Often the right hand didn’t know what the left hand was doing. But that was OK, because the left hand didn’t seem to know that there was a right hand!

Life as a CHDer back then really was an adventure!
