We're at CHLA today donating blood for Royal. He was born with a complete AV canal and will be having open heart surgery on Tuesday June 5th. About half of babies born with Down syndrome are also born with heart defects. We're excited that our baby's heart is finally going to be repaired and we are also a little nervous. We continue to trust in God and know that Royal will come out stronger than ever. Babies are so resilient and my son is a fighter. He's overcome so much and I know he is going to bounce back and amaze us all. Please keep my little family in your thoughts and prayers. I'll keep you all posted on his surgery and recovery.
Don't take life or granted and always fight for the ones you love. If you ever have the chance to donate blood, do it. You never know the life you may save.
