Many mothers believe their babies are miracles, but few know that to be a fact like mothers of children born with broken hearts. When mothers are told their unborn or newborn babies have something wrong with their hearts, the news is devastating. When mothers see their littles one fight for their lives and survive open-heart surgeries only to have difficulty feeding, gaining weight and still looking blue, they may all but despair.
Today's show will feature a mother who has seen all of that and more! Difficulty with feeding, feeding tubes, the fear that the heart defect may be genetic and thus worries over having a second child are all issues that our Guest, Angela Gilbert, has faced head on thanks to her son being born with transposition of the great arteries. Tune in to hear how she faced these issues, how her son, Gary, was able to overcome these obstacles and many more to become a healthy 16-year old teenager and what advice she has for other parents facing the same problems she has encountered.
