Half A Heart

It's hard to imagine a baby being born with only half a heart. A baby who doesn't have all four chambers. However, these kids exist. These kids and their families have a special place in my heart. Although Eli has all four chambers, his left side is smaller than it should be. However, we are lucky because it does work. Some kids like Owen were not so fortunate. Someday Owen will need a new heart. Soon they will be heading off to surgery to "patch" parts of his heart to buy more time. This is one of the many faces of CHD.
