my name is reenee, i have two children elouise who is 3 1/2 and izabella who is 2. izabella was born with a heart condition Tetralogy Of Fallot. at just 3 weeks old she had a shunt operation done and stayed in hospital for 6 days. 4 of the 6 days were in icu and everydayy i knew i had to walk into that room my heart sank. seeing all those children after their operations just made me so sad. knowing my daughter was a little fighter i always knew she would pull through but it was still heartbreaking.

she was very happy after that from getting her first tooth at 6 months to babbling and smiling all the time you wouldnt even know she was sick. at 9 1/2 months she had a cardiac catheter done so they could work out best cause of action for her big open heart surgery. i got to take her down to the catheter room so she could be with me while being put under anesthetic. watching the hurt in her eyes just killed me inside and it stills gets me to this day. just 4 weeks later at 10 1/2 months old izabella went in for her operation and all went extremely well.

after a mere 8 days (which the nurses said was a good recovery time) izabella was allowed home. since then she has gone from strength to strength. walking at 14 months, running around, feeding herself and the list goes on. she truly is a little fighter.
