Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Michael was born with heart damage and heart disease. He has had to endured many heart
procedures, years of testing, nasty shots and bloodwork, and the worst is the open-heart
surgeries at 2 ½ yrs, 8yrs, and now 10 years old.

The last surgery is failing and to give him the best chance at a normal life we are
taking him to Boston Children’s Hospital.

They are planning to do a fairly new surgery that involves making him a new aortic valve
with an outer layer of his heart. The benefits to this surgery are less chances
of rejections, less valve replacements, and additional options for any

This has the potential to give him a more normal life into adulthood. It may remove all his
restrictions, reduce daily medications, and give him energy and stamina to run
around and play like his friends.

Please pray with us for Michael. The journal will allow you to keep updated on his days
before, during, and after his surgery.

Thank you for your kindness and caring for Michael,

Mark, Laura, Michael, and family
