From a medical standpoint, Luke's heart is 1 in 10,000,000. A heart to be analyzed, studied, documented.
From a mother's standpoint, Luke's heart is my heart. A heart to be protected, cherished, nurtured.
I'm so glad the job is mine:
What makes Luke's heart so rare is two-fold: One, he is a true single ventricle, with not even a hypoplastic right ventricle. And two, most double inlet left ventricle hearts also have a transposition of the great arteries. Luke's arteries are normally related.
Just in case you were wondering!
Thank you to my hubby who gave me the entire day to myself. After a yummy breakfast in Tacoma with my mom, stepdad and brother, the rest of my day consisted of a good book, a good run, Starbucks, a nap, and Italian food — all my faves! Thank you, honey!
