Baby Vance's detailed heart diagram & more photos
I've had many questions in regard to exactly "what" did baby Vance's heart need. I am sure my explanation would be completely muddled so I have posted a few diagrams to explain. The first diagram is 'how a heart should look' and the second is the before and after surgery photos of baby Vance's heart. If you look closely you can see the differences in what a heart should look like, what his looked like before surgery, and what it looks like now.
This photo details the work done for Vance in order to have his heart look and function like the one above.
I would love to put a plug in for the Ronald Mcdonald houses. This is where everyone is staying while the baby is in the hospital. My husband was completely amazed at how they work. Here is just one example of the things they provide for the little ones to do. Gemma is having a great time while getting a pony ride. Definitely an organization to keep up and running. I am told that they are great blessings to those who need it!!
I love these pictures of my son and husband holding Gemma. She seems so content!
