Easton was born September 14, 2011 with a CHD (Congenital Heart Defect), called Truncus Arteriosus Type I. He also has a genetic deletion called Q22, or DiGeorge Syndrome. This little superhero of mine spent the first ten months of his life inside the walls of Children's Mercy Hospital and later Saint Louis Children's. He has undergone multiple operations, two open heart surgeries, and countless minor cath lab trips. Despite all the odds, Easton never gives up. He has defeated the odds, and never ceases to amaze his parents.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog as I will do my best to document his development and progress, both medically and in every day life.
