Our daughter Mackenzie was diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) at 16 weeks gestation. She was born in October 2020 and spent the first 10 weeks of her life in the hospital. She had a PDA stent procedure in the cath lab at 6 weeks old. She is currently at home doing well, growing, and preparing for open heart surgery.
She also had surgery in February 2021 to implant a pacemaker as she had developed complete heart block. She spent another 10 days in the hospital and is back home recovering!
Mackenzie will be having a second stent procedure in the cath lab in May.
We are so grateful for the amazing care she has received at OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois and the Congenital Heart Center. We are walking to celebrate Mackenzie and to raise awareness for CHDs.
