Reece was a 7 years old and has been sick since birth, Here's a little bit of his story from his momma Michelle and daddy Johnny Miniard! Reece had Hypo-Plastic Left Heart Syndrome. The left side of his heart didn't develop. The reason for this heart defect is still unknown. He had his first surgery at 8 days old called The Norwood. He came through with miraculous recovery . His next surgery was The Glenn at 6 months..home 7 days after both operations. We moved out to Kansas before Reece turned 1. His last surgery was in March of this year called The Fontane. After that surgery he was a... regular little boy. He could run and play..he started learning how to swim..him and his best friend Daylin had the best summer. Then I took Reece in for his check up w with his Cardiac doctor and he started getting sick two days later. I thought it was a stomach virus out his stomach started to swell. I took him to the ER from there we was life flighted to Children's Mercy in Kansas City. There we found out he has got the Rino Virus and The Entro Virus. Both the viruses attacked his heart. It was like a double edged sword through his heart and made his heart go into failure. He is on Milrinone..that keeps his heart going...with out it his heart stops working and his body starts to shut down. He was not getting better at the hospital so we brought him home on the same meds. We have faith that with Reece being at home happy and comfortable and not to mention the love that's at home..with all of that Reece will heal.
God will provide that for Reece.
