This world lost a precious baby girl this week, Sydney Elizabeth Cook, 6 months old.
Sydney’s heart condition included the following anomalies: an enlarged right atrium, a large ASD (atrial septal defect), Scimitar Syndrome (right pulmonary veins feeding into the inferior vena cava instead of the left atrium,) an additional superior vena cava (SVC) feeding her right atrium, a narrowing of the aortic arch, and an open duct called PDA (patent ductus arteriosus). She also has an underdeveloped right lung. She was admitted to Children’s Hospital 2 days after birth and has been here since.
I don’t know this family personally but it hurts just as bad. My heart sank and my eyes welled up with tears. I cried for what felt like hours. My heart just hurts that another innocent child has lost the fight with congenital heart defects.
This is exactly why research and awareness are so critical. Please pray for this family as they trust God to move forward.
Lord, thank you for Trevor and for his strength I praise you for his life.
