Best Way to Start a New Year


Thursday, January 01, 2009



We received some wonderful news yesterday. Our YGS was born with a defective mitral valve and required a replacement when he was 3 months old. The surgery went well, then we found out that 1 of the valve leaflets had closed and was no longer working. He has done incredibly well and is a beautiful, happy, and active baby. But there was always the worry that the other leaflet would also close, and even if it didn't, we knew there would be another surgery in the near future.

Yesterday, he had his checkup and we found out BOTH leaflets are now working!

This is absolutely wonderful news and was an incredible way to end a very good year, AND start a new one. He will eventually outgrow this valve and have to have a new one, but it will (hopefully) be many years down the road!

Happy New Year to everyone. May your New Year start as well as mine did!

    Wonderful! Thanks for sharing. My little nephew had the same problem...had surgery at 5 weeks. Pretty amazing. Glad he is doing so well!
