Walking for babies like Celeste
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for the Congenital Heart Walk. You may have contributed to my last walk for this cause a few years ago. This year, it means even more to me. In August 2020, Ryan and I welcomed out happy, sweet, beautiful and seemingly healthy baby girl, Celeste. However, just 4 days after that, Cece crashed at her first pediatric appointment. Her pulse ox dropped quickly and dramatically and she became unresponsive. After an ambulance ride and a very scary hour in the ER, we learned Cece had a rare heart defect—an interrupted aortic arch with coarctation, something our surgeon had never seen in 40 years. After 10 very scary days of surgery and recovery, our little one is back to her happy and healthy self. She’s on blood pressure meds and gets frequent EKGs and echos, but we are so lucky that we were in such wonderful hands and our doctors knew how to fix Cece.
