Dorian was born with a very severe case of Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. We didn’t know how bad it was until we got to Boston Children’s Hospital where her two amazing doctors, Dr. Emile Bacha & Dr. Audrey Marshall, saved her life. It wasn’t an easy road for her or us. In the process of saving her, Dorian also suffered a stroke. She had her first set of open-heart surgeries at 10 weeks old and her third one at a little over a year old. In between, she had many cardiology appointments, plus echocardiograms every 3 months. She was also seeing otolaryngology, neurology, gastroenterology, and she was also seeing a doctor for a fracture she incurred in her spine while in Boston. So for us running around became the norm. As time went by she slowly got better and better. In the beginning, travel was virtually impossible because we needed oxygen to fly, but now we don’t. We would never have thought about going to California let alone a cruise, but we are excited to say that we’re planning one now.
