Express Yourself

I was born in 1964 with Double Outlet Right Ventricle (with HLHS), Mitral Valve Atresia, Pulmonic Stenosis, and Total Anomalous Venous Return. One of the rarest conditions, and at the ripe old age of five months, I went in for a Blalock-Taussig shunt procedure. The chances of survival were minimal, and the doctor’s gave my parents a year at most. They told my mother and father to take me home and enjoy the time they had with me.
