Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome

Aug 31, 2008 - 1 comments






Iv always hated saying it out loud "i have hypoplastic left heart syndrome" or as i was brought up saying hypoplastic left ventricle. I was never really sure how many people had this defect, but recently i decided to look it up online. I have to admit i was shocked to see how many children are born with this, and the percentages of how many of them don't make it. I honestly couldn't imagine not being here, although i have to admit at times i haven't wanted to be. Three major operations, a million little ones, countless scars later and here i am a wreck! *laughs* I don't even know why im writing this, a journal on a medical help sight and im not even sure what i need help with.
