Baby Lange HLHS

My name is Gary and my wife is Kaitlin. At our 20-week ultra-sound we counted the fingers and toes and we were so excited to see all of them; then the doctor was concerned with our daughter’s heart and suggested they do an amniocentesis to check for any other abnormalities.  The doctor referred us to get a Fetal Echocardiogram with the University Hospital in town. We went to the appointment and our little girl was diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, a very rare congenital heart defect that only occurs in 1 out of every 4,344 babies born in the United States per the Center for Disease Control website. The surgical team at the University hospital recommended we relocate to Colorado to deliver our little girl and have the required surgeries to save her life.  My wife and I live in Albuquerque, and run a steakhouse there, and we must leave for an unknown time.  We have decided it would be best to close our steakhouse as we need to be there for our daughter and have all of our focus on her. Kaitlin and I will not have an income for a few months preventing us from paying our mortgage and other bills.  Thank you and God Bless.
