Benjamin was essentially born with half a heart (his diagnosis is a double inlet left ventricle). He underwent his first open-heart surgery at a week old. His second open heart surgery was at 3 and a half months old. He has one more planned that will take place in a few years. He is such a strong little boy who remains such a happy baby despite all of the challenges he’s faced. We are so thankful for the surgeons, doctors, and nurses who helped save our little heart warrior—life is so much better with him in it.
