In mid October 2012, my wife and I found out that our unborn child was to be born with a very serious congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. It was devastating to say the least but we were encouraged that the child may still have a chance to make it. On December 26, 2012, at approximately 31 weeks gestation, that child was born. He has been up and down and had to have an open heart surgery already just to try to make it to the first of the 3 palliative surgeries. He has been doing good since for the most part but has hit a few bumps in the road with an infection and a few other things. He is now on prophylactic antibiotics and continues to receive meds that basically keep him alive. At any rate, I have changed gears a bit on this blog and have decided to move this blog in the direction of Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. I will be updating baby Tyler's condition as I find out new information. Thanks to all who have supported and prayed for the little guy and the rest of the family.
