      I'm glad to hear that Paula. I also find it interesting because Daisy has
      only ever shown septal thickness which isn't getting any worse. It is such
      a complicated disease that even specialists seem to have a hard time
      classifying the different types of thickening. Let's just hope the septums
      and the rest of their hearts stay the same for the rest of their lives.

      Daisy: Maine Coon mix, 4-1/2 years old, diagnosed at age 1-1/2, asymptomatic
      HCM, 6.25 mg atenolol and 10 mg CoQ10 daily
