This sweet warrior boy was diagnosed with Tetrology of Fallot the day after being born after a nurse noticed a heart murmur while he was in the NICU – this is a combination of four defects that result in oxygen-poor blood to flow out of the heart and into the body. (It was suspected that he had a heart condition during pregnancy, but was not confirmed.) Even though this condition can be fatal in cases, he had his surgery at the end of March and it was a successful repair!
Mama said that at almost six months post operation, he’s now going 100mph all day, every day and you wouldn’t know that he had anything wrong with him! He loves racing around the kitchen in his walker, getting into everything he can and constantly making his family laugh. He doesn’t let anything hold him back and is currently teaching himself how to stand and walk.
