The Ultimate Paradox

I found this note in my e-mail this morning:
"My sister’s 3 sons (my nephews, ages 13, 11 and 8) were all diagnose(d) today with the same heart condition I have: Long QT Syndrome. Please pray for their peace & strength and for the wisdom of all doctors who see and test the boys.

They are facing years of tests, possible tachycardia and cardiac arrests, pacemakers, medications."
Positive congenital screening tests result in the ultimate paradox for the patients and families affected by the results:

The good news: the condition was recognized early.

The bad news: the condition was recognized early.
