Hi, I'm Sadie mom to DD, Cora 2 1/2 year old. Cora was diagnosed with a VSD the day after she was born. At 5 months old she had surgery to repair the VSD and one of her valves. The VSD closure is considered successful and they are keeping an eye on her valve (it leaks quite a bit). We decided to wait until Cora was 5 months so that she would get a little bigger and be a little stronger for the surgery, and I just wasnt ready for it. Pre-surgery Cora was always in the >10% for weight, shortly after surgery she bumped up to the 50th % and has stayed there since. I am still noticing a few signs of her heart condition, but they are minor and it doesnt affect her daily life.

This board tends to be a little quiet, but I have also found it helpful to read some of the past experiences of others. Feel free to PM me if you ever have any questions.
