At 2 days old, on July 8th, he had a procedure called the Norwood Procedure. The Norwood procedure converts the right ventricle into the main ventricle pumping blood to both the lungs and the body. The main pulmonary artery and the aorta are connected and the main pulmonary artery is cut off from the two branching pulmonary arteries that direct blood to each side of the lungs. Instead, a connection called a shunt is placed between the pulmonary arteries and the aorta to supply blood to the lungs.
He had his second open heart surgery (Bi-Lateral Glenn) at 5 and a half months on December 22, 2016. After he recovered, he was sent over to The Children's Institute for feeding issues. They worked on increasing feed volume and introducing baby food! He was finally released to come home on January 27, 2017, at 7 months old!
Today, August 6, 2018, Ryner went in for his 3rd open heart surgery, the Fontan procedure. He is currently in the OR.
Any donations will be used towards the care and support pf Ryner and his family. He has a long road ahead of him. All donations, prayers, and support are appreciated! Thank you all for love and support!
