Welcome to our Caring Bridge site. We've created it to keep our friends and family updated on our unborn son who was diagnosed with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) called Truncus Arteriosus. We appreciate all your support, words of hope and encouragement you have provided over the last months. We hope to use this site as a means to keep everyone updated as we begin our journey to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Pam, Clara, and I are Philadelphia bound on January 25. We are expecting to have the baby the week of February 14 (That is Plan A). After our son is born, they expect to do open heart surgery 3 to 5 days later with a 2 to 4 week recovery time. Pam and I want to thank all of you for your support since the diagnosis in October.
