This is a website created to keep our family and friends up to date on our baby boy Elijah Thomas. Elijah suffers fro Hypoplastic Right Heart (HRHS). This is a Congenital Heart Defect. However this is a very rare heart defect this defect only comprises 3% of all congenital heart defects.
Hypoplastic right heart- this means Eli suffers from Pulmonary Atresia with intact Ventricular Septum. In babies with pulmonary atresia the pulmonary valve is so small the blood flow leaving the heart is completely blocked.
Elijah was diagnosed with HRHS in December and we have been lucky enough to get the best pre natal care and have a staff of amazing Cardiologist and Surgeons to be with Eli even before he was born.
