My Story

Kayleigh was born on August 2, 2007. She was born with Hypoplastic left heart syndrome and Turners syndrome...



Kayleigh was born on August 2nd and was 3 weeks early. She was born at Saint Claires Hospital in Wausau. On kayleighs 2nd day of life we found out Kayleigh was sick and was immediatly taken to Marshfield, then to Milwaukee Childrens Hospital. There they said that Kayleigh has Congenital heart disease and it was Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. We were told that her condition was very critical and she would have to go threw 3 major open heart surgeries and there was a chance that Kayleigh would not make it threw the 1st or even to the 2nd. Before her surgery we were thrown another obstacle they told us that Kayleigh had Turners syndrome, and because of this her chances of surviving have gone down.

I will update more as I can.

Love,

Missy
