“As the mother of a child born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, besides going through four open-heart surgeries and coding, my son has also had eight abdominal surgeries, including a Ladd’s procedure and resection of his colon. William also functions without his appendix, spleen, and gall bladder. In addition to every kind of therapy imaginable, he has had to endure pamidronate infusions, daily shots, G-tube feedings, and TPN. Who knows how many times he’s been X-rayed and poked by a needle. It’s been a roller coaster, but he wouldn’t be here without you: all of you.”
Wendy Hind is a health care consultant.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Thank you pediatric medical professionals, as we fondly bid you adieu.”
