Rowan was born September 15, 2019 with Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome. He was diagnosed at 20 week gestation. 2 hours after Rowan was born he was taken via ambulance from Methodist Hospital to Riley Children’s Hospital where we spent the next 111 days on the Heart Floor. During his time at Riley, Rowan underwent 6 procedures/surgeries, including a pacemaker placement, gastrostomy tube placement and open heart surgery. On January 3, 2020 Rowan finally got to come home for the very first time! In 2020 he had another surgery to upgrade his pacemaker followed by his 2nd open heart surgery. After his 2nd open heart, he was strong enough to start eating more on his own and was able to get his feeding tube removed! We are currently awaiting his 3rd open heart which will complete the 3 stage repair for HRHS. Rowan is such a strong, smart, loving, happy boy. We are so thankful for his team at Riley and to be apart of the PUDM family!
