I had massive open heart surgery when I was a baby. I nearly died prior to surgery; my heart stopped beating in surgery and the surgeon resuscitated me by pumping my heart with his index finger and thumb; and post surgery my scars got so infected I nearly died again. Twenty-six years later, you’d never know. I’m incredibly appreciative of┬ábeing alive and I’m incredibly thankful to my pediatric nurse mom (who diagnosed me and was persistent in getting me seen by a cardiac specialist ) and the doctors who treated me.

I’m not sure if it is because of my heart trauma or not, but I love this banner ad from Cleveland Clinic. The action version is even better!
