Tripp was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) when he was about 24weeks (in utero). The doctors and I monitored and watched his growth closely during the pregnancy.
Tripp was born at 33weeks, 4lbs 15oz and an extra health condition called 22Q, that we are still learning about. He has spent all his time in the Hospital between the NICU, Mayo and PICU. We were able to take him home for a short while but readmitted him due to his heart condition.
He is now preparing for his Open Heart Surgery, which will be done at Mayo on November 24th, so long as all stays on course.
Thanks for all your support, it means the world to us all as we navigate these rocky waters. We will be using this to keep family and friends updated in one place. Thank you for visiting and God bless!
I’m gonna say that again because I can’t contain my excitement... I AM HOME!!!
It’s been roughly a week since I’ve been home and man does it feel good!
Did you know it’s really the first time I’ve been able to interact facially with my family? With covid, my family could rarely take their masks down, how crazy is that!! I’ve finally been able to see facial expressions and I’m starting to smile and coo which is a huge accomplishment!
I love seeing my brothers and getting those morning kisses on the forehead and saying prayers with them at night before bed. My heart is becoming so full ❤️
