Great Achievements

Andrew had a hearing test done because of concerns due to his prematurity. He passed the hearing test with flying colors although he may develop selective hearing like his father... (you know; where he hears his mother only when he wants to...lol) He also did really great on his developmental assesment even scoring a month ahead in social and cognitive development. We are so pleased with his progress. His newest achievement is scooting around. At this point he can scoot anywhere and is quite happy with himself. Now if only we can talk him into crawling...

Hi, I found your blog and wanted to post a note about congenital heart defects.

My son Jacob is 18 months old now and was born with a heart defect: Transposition of the Great Arteries (d-TGA). We did not know before he was born and he had to be emergency transferred to Primary Children's Medical Center. He had open heart surgery at Primary's when he was 5 days old.

I am part of a local non-profit support group called Intermountain Healing Hearts. I do not know if you have seen the posters about our group in the cardiology department when you have been there for appointments. We have over 130 families with children who have various CHDs and even some CHD adults in the group! What a blessing it has been to be able to talk with and ask questions of other “heart families” who truly understand what your family is going through.

The group website is: www.IntermountainHealingHearts.org
We also have a Yahoo group for email exchange.

We would love to have you join our group. Please let me know if we can be of help to your family in anyway.
