“I’m just 30 weeks pregnant and my baby has been diagnosed with TAPVD/R. Please pray that the next scan shows that there is nothing abnormal and that it was a misdiagnosis. We have waited so long for her and can’t even start to believe it.”
I pray that this is a misdiagnosis. BUT…if it’s not, I pray that God will give you the strength to get through your child’s health crisis. My Nathan had PAPVR (Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return), so he wasn’t born with a medical emergency that required immediate heart surgery. TAPVR (the T is for Total) may need attention soon after your daughter is born.
The Cove Point Foundation website has a good description of TAPVR and illustrations that help you to visualize how this will be corrected. To read more about this condition, click here and follow through sections 1-6.
Blessings to your family.
