Update on Beckett:

My lil man has what’s called Hypo Plastic Left Heart Syndrome (something you can just have at postpartum – 1 out of 1000). The left side of his heart is too small to pump the blood to his body. He will be having surgery on Wednesday to put in a shunt to redirect the blood flow to where it needs to go. He will need another surgery when he is about 4-6 months and then another one when he is about two years old. This first surgery is going to be the hardest and the most risky (about 70% survival) and then the healing period between the first and second surgeries is going to be very difficult as well and closely monitored. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support as this has certainly been a very challenging time for us. — with Leah ‘Whiteley’ Rupp.
