Henry had finally come and was doing well. He was ready to meet his three older siblings. Little did they know that the term congenital heart defect would become far to familiar.
Emily, Henry’s mom, and he were waiting for his older siblings. A nurse rushed in and told Emily that Henry had to be go to the NICU. Right. Away. The doctor was immediately on the phone to explain. Henry had congenital heart defect that needed to be repaired ASAP.
The next several weeks become a whirlwind. There would be transportation to a children’s hospital, surgery, and recovery with ups and downs.
Through it all, Emily learned to love more fiercely, with all of her heart. Henry is doing great and is a thriving fun three year old now!
Listen as Emily tells Henry’s story, and her story. She tells us what it felt like to be his mother and what it was like for both of them. The heartache (literally) and the triumphs that were accomplished that changed so many lives in the process.
