Happy 12th Birthday to Tyse and Happy 12th anniversary to Team Tyse!
Tyse is the reason we started this team and why we continue to keep up the fight for heart kids. This photo reminds us that no child or parent should have to endure the fear these defects cause. The long surgeries, so many machines, the prayers, the deep breaths, the heartache and the unknown of what the future will look like. This is the battle we have committed to for the last 12 years because of Tyse. This battle needs our attention.
All the tubes and leads on baby Tyse's chest are now scars. Reminders of those days - 50 days in the hospital of fear and hope. 12 years of those scars that now look at us and remind us that we can't quit. Babies still need us. Tyse still needs us to fight for his future and for all the other heart kids futures. The fear doesn't stop now it just changes.
Tyse just had his echo and cardiology appt a week ago. They want to do an MRI in a year to look closer at his narrow pulmonary artery. They are concerned that it may need surgery. Now that Tyse is 12 he hears these words loud and clear. It's a whole new ball game now than when he was little. The fear is not just ours it's now his and he gets what surgery means.
Help Team Tyse keep fighting this fight.
