Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is an inherited rhythm problem predisposing approximately 1 in 2000 individuals to serious and life-threatening heart rhythms that can result in cardiac arrest. The children of mothers or fathers with LQTS have a 50% chance of having LQTS, and even before they are born, babies with LQTS can have the life threatening rhythm problems.
Friday October 6, 2006 was a special day for my wife Laurie and me. I took the day off work to go to Portland, Oregon, about 150 miles from our home to pick up a dog that we imported from Hungary. On the way home, Laurie and I stopped in the Columbia River Gorge to walk our new family member and to show her the new country that she would call home.
