We go with the Fallot!!
Stella endured her first open heart surgery at 7 weeks old. Barely 11 lbs., with a heart the size of a walnut, they patched a hole and replaced a valve with a bit of material smaller than a penny.
1 in 100 kids is born with a heart defect. Our special kiddos happen to be 2 of those heart warriors. Our Stella was born with Tetralogy of Fallot, a disorder that forces her heart to work harder than it should, and requires regular testing, catheterization and surgery. Her little brother James was born with a less severe issue, a vascular ring and aortic arch.
Stella will need another valve replacement in the future. The great news is that with research and advancements in technology, the procedures are becoming less invasive and much safer. We raise funds at the heart walk each year to help advance the treatment and care of kids with CHD and appreciate anything you can chip in!
Thank you, from the bottom of our special hearts,
