I have 5 children and my 4th born (1year old) was born with a very rare and unique congenital heart defect after two surgeries he suffered a stroke and is not partially paralyzed on one side. So i was wondering if anyone else was going through the same thing?

I am very sorry to hear about your son going through that! I know how scary it can be to see them going through pain and not being able to do much about it. My son was diagnosed with a rapid beating heart at 4 weeks old. We took him into emerg and his heart rate was 300bpm. They had to put an ice pack on his face to get him to hold his breath so he would reset his heart. He was then on meds for a year and a half to slow down his heart rate. Anyways, I know my situation is different from yours, but I wanted to let you know that you aren't alone. If you ever need to chat about anything I don't mind at all. Take care.
