I had open heart sugary when I was 13 months old and that was back in 1979! I am sure they have had leaps and bounds of cardio advances since then. It also didn't hold me back from doing anything such as play soccer, basketball, softball and marching band! Kids are also pretty resilient in that my Mother said I was up and about less than 3 hours after the surgery. Good luck!

I was born with aortic stenosis...
I had my valve repaired when I was 4...at 24 I had it replaced and bypass surgery.. I will have to have open heart surgery every 15 years or so forever unless I get a mechanical valve..

I have led a very normal life!! You son will do great!!

You are in my thoughts and prayers. I went through this with my little sister last year. I can't imagine how much more stressful and scary it would be if it was my little guy. Hugs momma.
