Feb. 2- CHD Awareness- Owen's Story

Owen's journey began when he was just 47 hours old, when he underwent surgery to correct a Congential Heart Defect called Tranposition of the Great Arteries. His condition was life-threatening and required immediate open-heart-surgery to reverse the pulmonary and aorta arteries. He spent 8 days at CHOA-Egleston, where he continued to improve day after day. He pulled through like a champ and the surgeons considered his surgery a success. He will be required to see a cardiologist annually, but his long-term prognosis is good. Owen is now a 3 year old that loves to run, play, and eat lots and lots of chocolate. Owen brings his family much joy and reminds them of their blessings all of the time.
