Benjamin Reed Orcutt was born on May 4, 2016 ( Star Wars Day!) at 11:25 am via C-section. He was 9 pounds, 6 ounces and 20 inches long. Shortly after birth, it was determined that Ben had two congenital heart defects: pulmonary atresia and ventricular septal defect (VSD). He was transported by Teddy Bear Transport from Harris Southwest to Cook Children's NICU. He had his first heart surgery to place a temporary shunt on May 9, 2016 and had a valve bypass surgery on October 31, 2016. He went home on May 23, 2016 after a 19 day stay. We made this Caring Bridge page to keep everyone updated on our little family as we take this crazy journey. We appreciate all the thoughts, prayers, encouragement and advice!
