My Son, Kheann is 2months old now and he was diagnosed with VSD ( Ventricular Septal Defect) when he was 3weeks old. What is VSD and how does it affect my Son's life?
VSD is a hole in the wall separating the two lower chambers of the heart. In normal development, the wall between the chambers closes before the fetus is born, so that by birth, oxygen-rich blood is kept from mixing with the oxygen-poor blood. When the hole does not close, it may cause higher pressure in the heart or reduced oxygen to the body.
If the opening is Medium or large, the child may breath faster and harder than normal. Infants may have trouble feeding and growing at a normal rate. High pressure may occur in the blood vessels in the lungs because more blood than normal is being pumped there. Over time this may cause permanent damage to the lung blood vessels.
What can be done about Kheann's condition?
Open-heart surgery may be needed to close it and prevent serious problems. Usually open-heart surgery is done as early as their infancy or childhood to prevent complications later. Usually a patch of fabric or pericardium (the normal lining around the outside of the heart) is sewn over the VSD to close it completely.
Open-heart surgery will cost big amount of money. We have to prepare ourselves for the pre & post expenses of the operation. We cannot have that amount even we work double time. We are knocking at your good heart. Any amount will do and it will be a Big help to save my Little kheanns heart. Please also include my Kenken in your prayers and petitions.
As parents we will do anything and everything for our Son to live longer and healthier. My Son is a God's gift to us. We have been praying for him for a long time. I got 2 miscarriage before we have kheann. And now that we have our son, we make sure to get through this battle and surpass his sickness. Together we fight VSD.
