Sonny: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week
Sonny is a quiet little boy who was in desperate need of help. When we received his echocardiogram, we were not hopeful that heart surgery would be an option because of the seriousness of his diagnosis. Sonny had Double Outlet Right Ventricle (DORV), a VSD (hole in the heart) very close to his aortic valve, pulmonary stenosis (PS), and Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA). That is a lot of things to be wrong in such a little heart, and Sonny was very blue. But we sent him to a cardiac hospital in Shanghai to get another opinion.
