Having twins is a very special occurrence since it doesn't happen all that often. What happens when you have twins but one, or both of them, have a congenital heart defect? How does that affect other children in the same family? Will you be able to breastfeed your twins? Today's guests can answer those questions since both are moms of heart-healthy children and children born with critical congenital heart defects. Tune in to hear Kathy Kolodzinski and Roxanne Montalvo-Tsai tell their stories about having twins in the congenital heart defect community.
When a person is born with a broken heart, parents must face a multitude of decisions -- many life-threatening and terrifying. As children age, they themselves become aware of their heart problems and face their own mortality. Many of us in the heart defect community (CHD) have faced the death of loved ones or friends. How does being a member of the CHD community take a toll on its members? What are some ways we can deal with the trauma that we must face? One way is through art therapy or music therapy. Today's show will deal with this topic and will feature Angela Loehr, the founder of HeartWire, International (http://heartwiremyheart.org) and Megan Tones.
Sometimes our littlest heart heroes need extraordinary help in order to survive. One of the most extraordinary machines used to save our babies born with congenital heart defects is known as ECMO which stands for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. This is a special machine that takes blood from the body, oxygenates it using an artificial lung, and pumps it back into the body using an artificial heart. ECMO is similar to a heart/lung bypass machine used in open heart surgery, but can be used for a longer time.
Twenty years ago, when my son was just a baby, all of the babies I knew who were put on ECMO passed away. But like with so many types of new technology, things have changes and improved over the year. Now being put on ECMO doesn't have to be a death sentence. Today's show will feature three mothers whose children have been put on ECMO and survived. Hear about their experiences and what they feel other parents need to know on today's show.
