We patiently waited while the NICU staff got Ollie all settled in. Ollie was having an echo done immediately, so Jason and I sat by Ollie's side with so many lingering questions. Jason and I grabbed a couple of hours of sleep while the NICU team gathered answers. Around 8 in the morning, we were taken to a conference room where a team of cardiologist explained exactly what was going on with Ollie's heart.
Ollie has a congenital heart defect known as tetralogy of fallot. He will have open heart surgery to repair his heart sometime between now and the age of 1. The bigger we can get him, the better off he will be!
