Joshua Fountain
My oldest son who never complains...

He was diagnosed with having Long QT Syndrome which is a severe electrical problem with his heart. He told me that his heart was grabbing him and then letting go. Then he was having chest pains so bad that he could not catch his breath.

Our family is being genetically tested right now because Long QT Syndrome usually is genetic and runs in a family somewhere. Our oldest son Joshua was diagnosed with having LQTS on October, 2001. Both of our other children have not showed signs but that does not necessarily mean that they are out of the woods. We were told that Joshua cannot have any adrenaline rushes of any kind. He is 11 years old! How is he supposed to go through life without getting upset, angry, sad, or even joyous? Any kind of adrenaline rush can prolong his QT interval and that can lead to cardiac arrest. He cannot take any medicine at all! We do not know where to turn at this point! He is afraid of dying each and every night before he goes to sleep. He gets on his knees and asks God to help him make it through another day. Children who have LQTS usually die in their sleep or have heart attacks.
