    My 8 week old son is starting the process of being transported to Children’s Medical Center for a heart transplant. Right now we are at the Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. He has HLHS just like Rylynn had. We have gone through the Norwood procedure but things aren’t turning out the way they are suppose to. I can’t wait to transfer to Dallas and start the road that will forever change our lives. Thank you for sharing this story. I feel quite better now. God bless you!
