I found out Mason had hypoplastic left heart syndrome when I was 24 weeks pregnant. The doctors told me that he would need a series of 3 heart surgeries, the Norwood, Glenn, and Fontan.

Mason was born at Children’s Hospital of Milwaukee. He had his first heart surgery when he was only 6 days old. And his second surgery when he was almost 4 months old. It was heartbreaking having to see my son go through this. But he is doing amazing and I couldn’t ask for anything other than that. He just turned 6 months old and you would never be able to tell this little boy has gone through 2 open heart surgeries.

Baby Mason

I got the therapeutic pillow before his second surgery I had never seen one before this. I thought it would be a nice keepsake for Mason when he gets older. I had his team of doctors and nurses sign the pillow. A lot of them had never seen one before either. Mason will have his therapeutic pillow forever.
