Everett Sartin Everett’s CDH Journey

First post: Feb 19, 2018 Latest post: Apr 23, 2018
Everett's expected due date is April 17, 2018.  He was diagnosed with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) between 20 and 25 weeks gestation. CDH is a diagnosis given when the diaphragm has a hole that allows bowel (liver, stomach, intestine) to come into the chest cavity and keep the lung(s) from fully developing. It can also compress or move the heart. He has right sided CDH. The condition can be corrected with surgery, but only after delivery and when the baby is stable. We have been to multiple doctors (pediatric cardiologist, OBGYN specialist, pediatric surgeon, and neonatologist) and feel confident in our team, as well as faithful in our Savior. We will post updates from our appointments here and any other news we feel we need to relay.  We want to thank all of our family and friends for their prayers, encouragement, and continued support!
