Update 7/2/24

During our 20 week anatomy scan we were told that our son has CDH. The ultrasound tech and doctor in New Jersey both told us that we needed to see a specialist either in NYC or Philadelphia because New Jersey does not have the proper equipment for  CDH babies. Immediately after that appointment we scheduled an appointment with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for extended testing. During this appointment we had an MRI, detailed Ultrasound and Echo done on baby's heart. After a full day of testing we were told that our son was categorized as “moderate” LCDH and this birth defect appeared to be isolated. His spleen, bowel, stomach and left lobe of his liver is up in his chest cavity. We were able to meet with the surgeons, neonatologists and doctors to better understand the plan that is put into place once baby boy is born. Scheduled induction date is Aug 1st 2024.
