My 9 month old has to have open heart surgery Jan 6th. He has a ventricular septum defect (VSD) also know as a hole in the heart. His pediatrician heard a murmur and referred us to a cardiologist and the cardiologist told us he has VSD and scheduled his surgery. It has all happened so fast! I think it is so hard because he is healthy and doesn't show any signs of having something so serious. Has anyone gone through or is currently going through this? I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around what is gonna happen and would appreciate any advice!
