At Boston, being a baby, Dr.Aldo Castañeda found out that I had Tricuspid Artesia Cyanotic Congenital Heart disease, ventricular septal defect, with hypoplastic right ventricle and small right and left plumonary arteries, performing a surgery 4 months after my birth.
When I was 4 years old, I had another surgery called Modified Fontan including patch closure and atrial septal defect, Dacron conduct interposition between right atrium and subplumonary right ventricular outflow chamber.
After the surgery I came back to San Pedro Sula, Honduras to recover. I had a normal life becoming a preschool teacher until I got to the age of 20 experiencing different symptoms such as inflammation on both feet assumed to be a venous insufficiency. I got married willing to form a family, and after considering the pros and cons of getting pregnant, we decided to do it. I got pregnant but I couldn’t hold my baby so long. I had the most beautiful experience of being mother for five unforgettable months but my heart couldn't pump enough blood for two, and I lost it. It´s unsafe because of my health condition to get pregnant again so my husband and I decided to adopt the most beautiful baby girl I’ve ever seen. It took a lot of paper work, time and patience but finally my dream came true. I have family.
My baby’s name is Victoria (Victory translated to spanish). My life was happily focused on my family.
Life was going normal until February 2017, I was diagnose with protein, iron and potassium loss, that same year in August they diagnosed me with chronic thyroiditis , two months later I had inflammation again from my feet, stomach , face and the right lung was retaining water filled to the half. All the symptoms concluded to be by protein losing enteropathy.
I need to go back to Boston soon, my health is critical again. I need a surgery. I need your help. I want to have my dreamed family to last longer.
