An inspiring story! I enjoyed it. Thanks.
It's amazing what a little faith and a lot of positive thinking can do. A very nice story, (my son also cheers for Duke.)
Very happy ending!!
What an amazing story. I truly enjoyed this. If this is a true story the one thing I can say is we serve an amazing wonderful God who handles all things in his time and what started out as a roller coaster ride turned into one big happy ending for your son.
This kept my attention from beginning to end! Well done!

What a mighty God we serve! (Keep us updated...I imagine in a few years we'll be reading about him playing FOR Duke?)
Well-written testimony of taking life as it comes, hoping for the best, facing what may come.

Clearly and smoothly written.
It takes a solid story and great writing to bring out the goosebumps. Your story did exactly that.
Thanks for the wonderful comments. I really appreciate them! Now that this challenge is complete, I will say that yes, this is a true story. My son is now 19, and although he doesn't play basketball for Duke, he still loves the game, and follows his favorite college teams (he has more than one!). Thanks to that cardiologist's evaluation, he was not only able to play basketball, but also soccer. Lettered in both in high school, and received the "Christian Testimony" award in both his sevior year. God is GOOD!
