To do our bit for HeartKids Mark and I are aiming to walk 40km with the 3 kiddies in the month of February!

Our story:
As many of you know just before 6 weeks it was suspected that Darcy had a heart murmur. Then at 9 weeks he became extremely unwell with RSV bronchiolitis. He became critical and was flown to WCH Adelaide by the NETS team. At this time it was found that Darcy had a congenital heart disease (Aortic Valve Stenosis), this would require frequent check ups by a paediatric cardiologist and we were told he would likely need surgery within his first 12 months of life. This was all new to us and we had no idea what to expect but the HeartKids team were amazing and made us feel a lot more at ease with what was ahead! We began with 3 monthly trips to Adelaide for check ups, we passed his first birthday with no surgery required and things only getting minimally worse. Appointments pushed out to 6 monthly. At the beginning of 2020 his appointment wasn’t able to be attended due to covid and border closures. We attended a couple of months late and thankfully everything was still tracking ok but like most appointments they discussed the potential of surgery with us and what would be involved. At this stage Darcy is at 9monthly appointments and tracking okay!
We thank everyone who donates towards HeartKids as what they do for their heart families is amazing ❤️
