A Lil' Boy's Journey to Live….


Riley was born 4/4/08 with Heterotaxy Syndrome (Asplenia Type) with CAVC (common AV canal), Pulmonary Atresia, Right Ventricle to Aorta, TAPVR (total anomolous pulmonary venous return) (Infradiaphragmatic-unobstructed) and RRA s/p LMBTS (right aortic arch status post left modified BT shunt), patch augmentation of Pulmonary Artery bifurcation and TAPVR repair at 4 days old. He subsequently developed stenosis of each of his pulmonary veins and has undergone over a dozen Cardiac Catheterization with dilation/stent placement in all four pulmonary veins. He has also had a stent placed in the BT shunt. As of today Riley only has his RUPV and LLPV remaining. The other two have completely occluded. As of 11/2/09 Riley has been listed for a Bilateral Lung/Heart Transplant and requires continuous O2. Riley also had the Ladds procedure 1/6/09 along with placement of a Gtube/Feeding Tube.
