Nova had a corrective open heart surgery at 10 days old that placed a pulmonary artery band aka PA band. After the surgery, her wound became infected which prompted another open heart surgery shortly after.
After her 1 month old birthday the Dr.s discovered her PA band had became loose and they needed to do another open heart surgery to correct it. During her 3rd open heart surgery the Dr.s found an aneurism in her heart. They were able to remove the aneurism and correct the PA band. For those of you who aren't familiar with aneurisms, they are extremely rare to find prior to it rupturing. Nova is a true Brave Heart miracle. She then developed a blood clot in her leg which eventually subsided after a couple months. She was able to then come home for a few months where she grew and gained healthy weight.
Being happy and smiling at her favorite toys, cartoons, stuffed animals and youtube shows. She is a true fighter and continues to smile, laugh at her silly daddy and observe everything around her everyday.
UPDATE: NOVA is currently in the hospital having her 2nd schedruled corrective heart surgery
but in actually is her 4th. She is still in the hospital and will be for at least another week or so until she is strong & healthy enough to come back home. We have started this campaign to help her parents out with medical bills, time off work, parking, food, and overall finances for day to day expenses. As their time at work is limited with all of the recent complications. Mommy spends everyday day and now night with Nova. If you cannot donate please spread the word and say a little prayer for our Nova Baby. Thank you family & friends. I can't wait for you to meet our Brave Heart . I will post updates when available.
