Quoting akatetmom:Hello, my name is Stacey mom to 3 kids, also married to the Army (which I don't mind). DH and I have been married for 7 yrs, he is currently getting ready for a 3rd deployment to Iraq.Our youngest son Ira, was born Nov 30th 2005 in Germany where we were stationed. At 3 days old the Ped came in a told me she thought he had an innocent heart murmor and sent him to a ICU 15 minutes away. When we finally arrived the next day we found he had Tetralogy of Fallot and would need an open heart surgery. He struggled for 2 weeks, and on the 15th of December he was trasfered 1 hour away to have his BT shunt placed. To make a long story shorter, we ended up Medevacing with the US military and eventually made it to Washingotn DC for Ira to have a full repair. Which went great. Now we're here in Washington state. Ira suffered from Subglottic Stenosis Stage 3 when we first got here and had to be trasfered to Seattle to have it lasered open. I would add a whole detailed story because there is alot more to it. But I am sort of pressed for time, Ira has a weigh in at the Peds. He is small for his age. Barely hitting 0% on both height and wieght charts. But he's mentally the age of his norm.
