    Her brother is the men's head coach at Pitt. My condolences to the family.

    That's a terrible tragedy.. That is way to young to die of heart trouble, especially when it seems like she was a athlete, and in good shape. Hopefully the good lord above is with her family during this difficult time in their lives.

    What sucks is that I have her same heart condition. Or something similar.

    supraventricular tachycardia

    I had to hit the emergency room a couple weeks ago. I don't really trust them with the results. They tested this when I was young and said it just was a rapid heart beat.

    They said I have 3 options.

    1. Surgery to correct the problem but there a 10% chance they screw up and I need a pacemaker.

    2. Take meds that kick in about 10min after my heart starts racing.

    3. Do nothing. Because it happens about 4-5 times a year.

    Any Docs around here? I'm only 26. I don't trust these guys. They haven't seemed to care or return my phone calls.

    Viking fans hunger a Championship more than anyone in sports.

    Bring it home boyz.

    That is crazy. They were talking about her and her brother a lot during the tourny. They even did an interview with them on ESPNews one afternoon.

    Sad story!

    If you don't trust what they said go get another opinion. A different DR may have different results or come to the same conclusion. Whatever you do, get something done ASAP. I am not sick to often but when I am (other then a cold or allergies) I go to the doctor. You oonly have 1 body. If you don't take care of if you are SOL.

    True.. I'm calling my insurance company at noon. I'm going to see if I can get an appointment at the John Nasseff Heart Center in St. Paul. They are rated one of the best in the nation.

    You will prolly have to get a referral from your regular Dr. to see a specialist. It depends on what provider you have. I know for sure cigna requires one.

    Fortunately they're in my network. I have an appointment setup. I can really trust these guys.
