We are thrilled to be welcoming Matthew to our family this summer, but are facing some major challenges with his health. Our son has been diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), which means that the left side of his heart did not fully form and is not capable of sustaining his body once he is born. We are grateful to be connected with the talented and compassionate cardiac team at Boston Children's Hospital, who will be caring for him through his 3 surgeries and beyond.
Knowing that being surrounded by community will be so important during this season, we invite our family & friends to join us on this journey. We plan to use this blog as a way to post updates on Matthew's condition, let you know how we are doing, and ask for help as we know what we need. Thanks for journeying with us!
