Your child's travel firsts
My 4 year old Downs Syndrome son...
With all the junk going on about the missing plane and Crimea, I thought Id suggest a feel good story about my son Wyatt...
He was born with Downs Syndrome and at 3 months old had to have major heart surgery to repair 2 serious heart defects...He has had many other minor surgeries since then but had major trachea surgery last August...During one of his routine checkups, they had to dilate his trachea and he coded for 30 seconds and they had to recusitate him...We almost lost him that day....
Needless to say, he is thriving and growing and a joy in my ex wifes and I lives and his little sister thinks he hung the moon...
Hope you can or will do a story about him and his recovery thus far...Oh yea, the above pic of him is his FIRST trip to a real live NFL game in Cincinnati just after he was released from the hospital...
