my baby wing wing was diagnosed w/ venticular septal defect, patent ductus atreosus w/ pulmonary stenosis.. he is only 9 mos old.. when i was pregnant i thought all the lab tests were okay and so the ultrasounds. when i gave birth to him, he was just 2.5 lbs.He was all well until we were discharged from the hospital. But when he was 2 mos old, i noticed some disturbing changes in him that he is turning into bluish purple color while crying, his heartbeat's so fast and he's sweating too much while feeding. And what's alarming is, he is not gaining weight. I can feel that there's something wrong with my child. It's true when they say to trust your mother instinct so, even without a single penny, i went to the doctor to get him checked..
I asked the pediatrician if is it normal that my child has a pale skin and he's turning blue and so his nails while crying. The pedia told that it was not normal and adviced to see a cardio pedia because he might have a congenital heart disease.
I don't even know if i heard him right. My heart was breaking. But what is the sense if I'm not going to do further check ups? So i went to Phik Heart Center. He went through Cbc, ecg, xray, 2d echo and so on.. After tests over tests over tests, he was diagnosed with vsd pda w/ ps. They told me that he need to undergo an open heart surgery.
Oh! Let me tell you this.. I felt like the world is conspiring against me. I asked myself, why my son? We don't have enough money for his operation amd medications..
Why is this happening to us? But then i realised, who am i to ask?But our situation is poor and we cannot afford the operation and medical support.So,I am here asking for financial help-any amount will be heartly appreciated-fo save my sons life.And also we are selling a chd awareness t-shirt to gather a funds.
With all your help and prayers in our ALMIGHTY GOD i know we will WIN this FIGHT.
thank you in advance and GOD BLESS!
