My son and his wife are expecting another baby. They discovered during an ultrasound that he has transposition of the great arteries. He also has a large ventricular septal defect. The plan is to keep a close eye on things and then perform surgery right after delivery. He is due early February and right now the plan is to deliver him a couple of weeks early. There is hope the septal defect may at least get smaller the closer he gets to full term. They said they don't think it is genetic but makes me wonder since my grandfather and I both had valve issues. Just thinking of OHS on a newborn is extremely scary. Then there is the possibility of developmental issues being caused by this. Just wanted to ask for prayers for a good outcome.
