Two adult women born with complex congenital heart defects share stories about what it was like to grow up and find love in an uncertain world. As a bonus, one of the husbands will be on the show, too! Many parents of children with congenital heart defects wonder if their children will survive infancy and can only hope and pray they will someday be adults. Parents sometimes worry about whether or not anyone will want to spend the rest of their lives with a person who is capable of love but has a funky heart. This show will address some of the fears and concerns adults with heart defects have, but above all, we'll talk about the joy of finding one's true love regardless of being born with a heart defect.
This week we meet Diane Jones from Guardian Angels Cat Rescue and Peaches the Cat.
Guardian Angels Cat Rescue & Adoption Shelter is an all volunteer organization operating a no kill facility for homeless felines. The Shelter operates with an upper limit of 136 resident felines onsite, and some in the care of foster homes depending upon the season. All cats that enter the Shelter are assessed by a veterinarian and once tested and cleared for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus or other diseases are available for adoption.
Peaches the Wonder Cat was born in July 2013 and was dumped at a kill shelter when she was only 4 weeks old. It was soon discovered that she was dying from a diaphragmatic hernia....probably from being thrown or kicked... Luckily a wonderful vet was able to do emergency surgery and she survived, despite the odds, and made a full recovery. Her growth, however, was stunted because she was unable to absorb nutrients in the first few months of her life so she is very tiny.
Join us to learn more about our guests and the joy and love cats bring to the world.
According to Corience: An Independent European Platform on Congenital Heart Defects, " As many as 40–60% of children with congenital heart defects are undernourished.
Healthy babies double their weight in 6 months; however, children with congenital heart defects put on weight more slowly. Their growth is also affected by the heart defect.
Why do children with congenital heart disease not grow as other children do? The answer is because the heart defect makes them need more energy. Their diagnosis might also complicate feeding for several different reasons. Heart failure makes them too tired to feed. Some of them might have trouble keeping down their feeds. Others seem to have difficulty in coordinating breathing and nursing.
This episode will investiage what kinds of equipment might be needed to help a babe with a congenital heart defect if that baby cannot nurse or feed normally. Listen as one mother shares her experience with her baby -- who needed a feeding tube. We'll also talk with a clinical psychologist who specializes in early infancy and childhood as well as eating disorders and tube feeding. She works for the NoTube Limited Liability Corporation, which was founded to help children all over the world to overcome the severe condition of tube dependency. Discover how one mother and a company over six thousand miles apart helped one little boy wean successfully from his feeding tube without ever leaving home!
Military families lead a very different life than civilian families do. Military families come from all walks of life and, when their children are diagnosed with heart defects, the challenges can vary according to location, branch of service, and of course separations that come at the most unexpected times. Despite these challenges, military families try their best to find ways to balance all aspects of their lives with a positive attitude. When a child is born to a military family and that child has birth defects, the one thing most families want is comfort -- and oftentimes comfort is found in what is familiar but many of our military families are not afforded that luxury. How do military families deal with having a child with a heart defect? What special challenges do they face? Who can help them through the difficulties associated with having a child who needs surgery in the first days or months of a baby's life and will require lifelong care?

Boys born with critical congenital heart defects are frequently not able to participate in sports like their heart-healthy peers. Because of the multiple surgeries needed, the frequent need for pacemakers or the concern about arrhythmias and the other complications that can accompany critical congenital heart defects, survivors of these defects frequently have to avoid contact sports or sports that are intensely aerobic in nature. How does this affect sons' relationships with their fathers? How can they still enjoy sports together despite medical restrictions? This show will feature the father of a young son as well as a father/son pair who have experience with topic.
Most parents that conceive children with in vitro fertilization wonder about the short term and long term impact of this treatment on the children conceived. Are children conceived through infertility treatment more at risk for congenital defects; physical growth delays; neurological, cognitive, behavioral, and mental health issues; metabolic disease, or at an increased risk for cancer? What does a review of the latest research show? Host Dawn Davenport will interview Dr. Seetha Shankaran, Professor of Pediatrics and Director of Neonatal Perinatal Medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine, and author of comprehensive analysis of the literature on childhood and young adult outcome following assisted reproductive therapies.

Children with critical congenital heart defects need surgery within the first days or weeks of life. It is not uncommon for these hospital stays to be filled with complications and situations where a long stay is inevitable. This show will deal with ways to help parents and children endure a long hospital stay. Our Guests will be a Heart Mom whose daughter was in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit for the first ten months of her life and a Child Life Specialists. Together we'll discuss the issues that arise from an extended stay in the hospital so the transitition from hospital to home is as seamless as possible.

One of the problems many of our CHD children suffer from is "Failure to Thrive" and because the children with critical congenital heart defects usually have surgery within the first days or months of their lives, they may develop oral aversion (very probably because of being intubated for extended periods of time). Because many of our children have oral aversion, they frequently do not like foods of certain textures. This can make feeding our CHD children a great challenge. If you are suffering from this situation, this show is one you shouldn't miss! Listen to our show to hear of others who have dealt with these issues and find out how they have overcome problems. There is hope!
