Hello, My name is Lauren and my son Quentin was born 5/30 But it was an emergency c-section because we were having a hard time with his heart beat.....he had a heart defeat and had to have open heart surgery. We thought he was not going to make it! He went to CHOC. He had only a 20% chance of living.....They didnt think he would even make it tell the transport team from Choc to get there. He had what they call Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA). So at 5 day old he had open heart surgery it was very hard for us to go thought. On top of all this my husband had to work everyday...plus we had to move because there was black mold in our home and the landlord would not fix it! So when he was discharged from the hospital we didn't have a place to go for awhile. So we had to stay at the Ronald McDonaid house that had been staying at when i got out of the hospital. There is so much more that happen. my life was turned upside down in just mins. I also had to give up our dog because we could not have him with a baby that just had heart surgery. They odd thing is my grandpa is a cardiologist and helped make the heart and lung machine that he was on. He is almost 13 month soon and he is the love of my life. I would do it all over again just to have him.
I would love to talk to you more!
