Congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defect, affecting 1 out of every 100 infants. Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) accounts for a small percentage of all heart defects, but remains one of the most common causes of death in infants with congenital heart desease. Typically children with HLHS get 3 open heart surgeries. There is hope and more and more CHD warriors survive each year!

Still No Baby
Well today was a little uneventful. I suppose that is a good thing. Lisa is still contracting it's just not as strong as it was yesterday so there was no need to go to the hospital. It's still a waiting game for us. Instead this morning we called a photographer in town (helpful hint: always ask how much the sitting fee is!) to take much wanted pregnancy pictures for us. Lisa has wanted to take these pictures for weeks and it was now or never seeing as yesterday it seemed more like never. Never under estimate the power of a pregnant woman when she wants something! Somehow I think she made a deal with Cemaia to hold off a little while so we could get these pictures done. So because she held up her end of the deal we went and got some baked chicken and potato wedges to say thank you. I also found out today that I am O positive so we have a better glimpse of who will be able to give blood to Cemaia when the time is right. Downstairs while we ate dinner they had a group of people singing Christmas carols which was nice. Other than that today was uneventful (baby wise) for me and uncomfortable for Lisa.
