Did anyone else read that diary in the Daily Mail by the parents of a baby who needs a heart transplant asap? The baby has a heart condition that means one side of the heart does not grow. It made me cry from almost the first paragraph. It is one of those dreadful situations where he can only survive if another family lose a baby. My heart goes out to them and to whoever it is who may find themselves in the dreadful sitiuation to be able to donate a heart to save him.
Makes you want to hold your children close and never let go.
them sort of stories always make me cry
it does make me watn to hold my children close and to never let them go
Ive not seen it either and sure i would have a tear with it,its so sad yes that things like this happen.
Things like this pluck a big coard with me as an old friend suffered with heart and lung problems and all through out pre-school yrs she was on constant oxygen and was even given a mobility scooter so she didnt have to lug the bottle around on a trolly,it was hard to see growing up knowing that she never had long unless she had a double transplant. She did get it tho at about 12-15yrs old but i was sadly told a few mths back she passed away 2yrs ago. Never realy got to see her grow up as we moved away but glad she was able to enjoy her short life after her op.
I get pick me up,chat and full house at times and read in last weeks about a little boy with a similar prob,they used the berlin heart on him as a temp measure while waiting for a donor and luckly enough his heart grew stronger iykwim,and they were able to take him off it and his heart was kinda fine,just needs regular check ups.
All the best to them in finding a heart.
