Hi, my name is Amber. This is my son Cason, he will be 4 months old on February 13th. He was diagnosed with a complex congenital heart defect when I was only 21 weeks pregnant that being known as Double Inlet Left Ventricle, Transposed Great Arteries, Coarctation of Aorta. He was born in Charlotte, NC the home of The HEARTest Yard
We knew that we’d follow the single ventricle form, the first of three surgeries to be done. He has his Norwood at 6 days old, and on 2/16 he will have his Glenn.
He is not his heart defect—his heart is full of gold, he loves with everything in him. He is a happy baby most of the time unless he feels bad. Our nurses, after his Norwood, happened to come across one WubbaNub while retrieving some warm blankets and sheets for his bed (after telling us that the Heart Warrior WubbaNubs were all gone). We can’t wait until more are available to share with another heart warrior friend, and excited to get a Heart Warrior lovey blanket
Thank you Wubbanub family for providing these perfect accessories for our babies
