I lost my Willie to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and a congenital mitral valve defect at five years old. It’s very hard to deal with a cardiac diagnosis at any age.
He was on many meds. His lungs were tapped several times. Love your baby with all your heart every day. Make sure he knows you love him. I still have a hard time four years later. Did I do enough, I ask myself?
i have accepted that I did. Your Rusty doesn’t sound as sick as my baby was. I had to carry him upstairs. He was in an oxygen cage at the ER every few days. It was harder on me than him having to give four meds several times a day
Be strong and enjoy every day
