When I was 20 weeks pregnant with our son we found out he had a congenital heart defect. He was born at Froedert Hospital in Milwaukee and immediately taken to Children’s Wisconsin NICU on January 30th, 2020. The next day he had his first heart cath and was diagnosed with Pulmonary Atresia with Intact Ventricular Septum, PFO, & Right Ventricle Dependent Coronarys. At 18 days old was placed on a heart transplant list as a 1A. On March 7th at 9:45 we received the call that they found a heart for our son and on March 8th our son, Forrest Michael received his 2nd chance at life at 6 weeks old.
He now is 1 year old and a month short of his 1 year heart anniversary and he is doing great! He is a strong, sweet amazing boy!
