Welcome to Living with VMD, Matt (surprised nobody has taken that username yet haha). Sorry to hear about your earlier complications, but hopefully these are now few and far between now that you know some precautions that need to be taken after being diagnosed. It is also great to hear that all your children were fortunate not to inherit VMD. Family is often the best support for most poeple - but hopefully getting involved with our community will also be beneficial for you. Feel free to start looking through or contributing to various discussions - but if you have any questions then feel free to reach out to me!
