Let me start by saying, my nephew AJ is a pediatric heart patient and has undergone open heart surgery twice.
He has the “zipper” scar that all heart patients have and some of the most nerve wracking moments of my life happened during those tense moments when he was in surgery.
When I see videos like the one below, my heart swells and tears of joy come to my eyes.
This little boy, is what we in my family call a “heart hero.” My nephew had his first open heart surgery at 5-years-old and I vividly remember the conversations we had in my family about fixing his heart.
Of course, when an organ is donated, that means the organ donor passed, so to the family who made that difficult decision to donate a heart perfect for a 5-year-old, my thoughts and prayers are with you as you grieve.
